Profile Sensor Technology for Tire Manufacturing Applications
|Date Published||September 22, 2004|
Fixed-Point Laser Triangulation measurement has many traditional applications in tire manufacturing and has matured over two decades of use. A new generation of profile sensors using laser line triangulation is now poised to displace fixed-point measurement in some of these applications, and to create new measurement applications. These profile sensors can acquire hundreds or thousands of measurement points to characterize complex profile shapes. This high data-density enables measurement characterization not possible with alternative measurement methods.
