/uploadedImages/2014_Taxonomy/Industries/DS_Applications/_Glue-Bead.jpg

Challenge:

Verify the amount of sealant material after it is laid down, as well as the continuity of the sealant bead.

Solution:

A DS1000 displacement sensor was installed close to the robot that dispenses the sealant material to provide early inspection and detection of defective sealant beads.

Results:

Because defective sealant beads were detected early, the manufacturer was able remedy problems quickly before they became a costly mistake. They were able to increase the quality of the parts they produced as well as reduce costs by minimizing the shipping of defective parts.
