Splice inspection and measurement

Quality control during the tire production process, including splice inspection on tires, has traditionally been performed manually by machine operators. Now this process can be automated with the Ranger3 3D vision sensor, achieving a significant reduction in reject rate. The sensor automatically and reliably distinguishes between correct and incorrect splices on dark materials such as rubber.

The Ranger3 3D vision sensor detects gaps, overlaps, and dog ear and open splices.
