From cameras and QR codes to lasers and sensors, developments in tire machine inspection and vision technologies help to evolve production accuracy. The latest advances in monitoring technology can sharpen the quality control process still further.
The various stages of tire building create potentially harsh environments due to the vibration of machinery and the induction of powerful electric motors as part of the process. Ambient temperature and humidity also vary significantly from one plant to another. Therefore, lasers must be designed and manufactured with these in mind.
