Tire Manufacturing Applications
Due to strict regulation in the tire manufacturing industry, companies have been forced to optimise, improve, and automate tire inspection. Numetrix offers a high-precision optical system capable of analyzing and quantifying the key parameters that define the acceptable criteria of the completed product. The powerful machine vision 3D surface digitizer, when used with user-defined algorithms, becomes a tool that allows real-time tire surface feature and shape inspection for laboratory testing or production line use.
Numetrix’s Sidewall Recognition System which consist of a stationary device that scans the tire sidewall surface text and pattern using OCR (optical character recognition). The captured text is then compared to the provided tire sidewall template. Both the scan and template are uploaded into the Numetrix Studio display which analyses and displays any manufacturing defects.
The NX3D-50 digitizer offers convenient inspection capabilities for production lines using on-line analysis of key quality parameters and trained feed-back loop decisions applying the user’s algorithms and thresholds at ultra-fast speeds of 50μs per full high-resolution 3D frame.
Our dedicated user interface, Numetrix Studio, allows full customization and edition of user related machine vision algorithms. We work closely with our clients to develop custom solutions that fully meet surface inspection goals.
