ACUITY’S LINE OF LASER SENSORS

Schmitt Industries, Inc. has been providing process measurement and control systems for many years. In 1992, Acuity Laser was founded to develop a more specific product line of lasers for the industrial and OEM use. With hundreds of applications for our line of lasers, Acuity is proud to be a United States laser sensor company.

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.

DISPLACEMENT DIESEL ENGINE

Large diesel-powered generators combine inductors with a diesel engines to produce thousands of kilowatts of power. These enormous pieces of capital equipment see extensive preventative maintenance and testing so they reliably and efficiently operate in the field. The US’ leading electric motor and generator servicing company uses four laser measurement sensors to measure the amplitude of vibration of large diesel generators. Their test setup has the sensors measuring the displacement of the diesel engine (generator) support rails while the system is idling and during heavy loading.

CRASH TEST LASER SENSORS

Engineers of automobile crash tests use a variety of sensors to record a wealth of vehicle information during the last, split-seconds of the controlled impact. Vehicle deformation, accelerations, temperatures, etc, are collected at high speeds and analyzed to determine avenues for improvement in safety.

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.

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.
