Four Selcom® SLS 5006/50-RU non-contact laser measurement sensors from LMI Technologies are being used to measure the thickness of calendered sheet at the Vredestein Banden BV tire plant in Enschede, The Netherlands. Measuring the true shape and dimensions of the fresh and uncured material, the sensors are mounted in a dual head set up on two tracks on both sides of the calendered sheet. Real-time control of the roller gap minimizes fluctuations and monitors the thickness of the rubber sheet to be within tolerance. Go to www.lmint.com to find out more.
With a better understanding of materials’ response to load and temperature, researchers could potentially use the knowledge to improve design. The research could even help geologists studying plate tectonics.
