Erhardt+Leimer, a leading supplier of components and systems for production machine and quality assurance automation in tire production, will present some of its latest inspection and measuring technology.
Black-on-Black (EL-BOB) cameras are designed for reliable detection of web edges with minimum contrast, which can occur with tire material strips on black conveyor belts, laminated strips, ridges and grooves. The position values provided by the camera can then be used for measuring the width of the innerliner or sidewall, for the final check after doubling or for web guiding in the tire building machine.
EL-BOB is a stand-alone application with web-based management for commissioning. The creation of recipes is possible via a graphical user interface on site or online using remote maintenance. In addition, the web-based management offers a monitoring function with 2D images.
The software compensates deviations in the thickness of the material without reducing the accuracy of the measurement. An encoder is used to synchronize the camera with the production machine, making it possible to evaluate the footage at any time.
