Ensuring the quality of each component in the tire manufacturing process is critical to the performance and safety of each tire produced. Traditionally tire component inspection has been a manual process relying on operators to make the determination if the component meets quality standards which can be time-consuming and highly variable. The Bartell BeadView™ measurement system provides an integrated solution to precisely and repeatedly measure bead characteristics, improving overall quality and reducing scrap.
The industries first noncontact bead measurement system optically captures bead diameter, circumference, height and width while eliminating operator measurement variability and the potential for error. The BeadView™ system can be integrated into new or existing Bartell bead lines and relating measurements collect data for use in analysis of productivity and product quality.
