Tire and Rubber Manufacturing
Laser Sensors for the Tire and Rubber Industry
Single point AR200 and AR700 laser sensors are used to measure on-line thickness of calendared rubber. Tire manufactures also use single point sensors to measure bulge and dent of tire sidewalls. Acuity laser line scanners like the AP820 are used to measure the tread and wear of tires at high rotational speeds.
This application list is not intended to be exhaustive usage list for sensors in tire and rubber manufacturing. The measuring tasks are by no means limited to these examples, they may be of interest to the interested party as a suggestion for similar or completely different applications.
