WOODEN DOOR ON-LINE THICKNESS MEASUREMENT

One of Acuity’s customers manufactures wooden door at a rate of over 4,000 doors a day. The quality, fit and finish of the door must be as perfect as possible.

PAVEMENT MEASUREMENTS WITH LASER SENSORS

Profilometers provide high-quality measurements of pavement deformations at highway speeds. The equipment measures the longitudinal and transverse road profiles, International Roughness Index (IRI), wheel path rut depth, Ride Number (RN) and macro texture of asphalt and concrete surfaces.

RUBBER THICKNESS SENSORS

Most natural rubber products are made with a calendering process where soft rubber material is fed between two hard, cylindrical rollers to create a sheet. This sheet is then further pressed between hard rollers to create smoother and thinner rubber sheets. The sheets can then be used for various products, including conveyor belts, tires or mats.

MOLD POSITION MEASUREMENT

A US manufacturer of pipe fittings and couplings casts these parts in sand molds. The automated process uses several pneumatic cylinders to put the molds into a properly “stacked” position. It is imperative that these molds are properly positioned so the front and back sides are aligned.

ELEVATOR POSITION MONITORING WITH LASER RANGEFINDERS

n 2006, the City of Minneapolis commissioned a permanent public artwork at the Minneapolis Public Library. Built into the structure of the two glass elevator cabs in Library Hall, “Four Stories” displays the titles of recently checked-out books in large, illuminated text as the elevators move between floors.

INLINE BOARD THICKNESS MEASUREMENT

Non-contact laser displacement sensors are used to measure the thickness of polystyrene foam-extruded insulation boards in a continuous manufacturing environment. The boards are composed of foam sandwiched between plastic film. The rigid boards are continuously produced and cut to length at subsequent stages in the process.

HEIGHT MEASURING OF CONCRETE BRICKS AND BLOCKS

The Block Qualifier is a height measurement device, used in the concrete brick and block industry. The Block Qualifier, uses non-contact laser measuring sensor technology to gauge the size of concrete bricks.

PROPELLER BLADE PROFILING USING LASER SENSORS

A major North American propeller manufacturer and service company selected a long-range triangulation sensor to measure the profile of its propellers and controllable tip blades during the manufacturing process. Non-contact measuring, like that afforded by laser sensors, is desirable in propeller manufacturing because the fixed measuring device can be installed with a large standoff away from bulky and/or moving parts.
