OTR tire inspection for Marangoni S.p.A.

INTRODUCTION The Maragoni Group currently operates in business areas covering most tire production activities. In order to improve quality in the reatreading process and to save unnecessary costs due to defect tires, Marangoni was interested in the capability of STEINBICHLER INTACT 2800 for detection of separations in OTR tires. To get their own impressions about the quality, Marangoni sent eight individual test tires for inspection to the Steinbichler laboratory in Neubeuern (D). Those tires were inspected with shearography and afterwards returned to Italy. The automatic inspection results were recorded and handed over to Marangoni. In order to analyze the findings,…
SYSTEM STEINBICHLER COMET 5 robot-controlled, automated measurement CUSTOMER BMW Regensburg "Mit vielen Pixeln geht´s besser - Many pixels is best" - a photo-optical, three-dimensional measuring unit inspects the complete surface of car body parts in the press shop. Thus, quality control has become significantly more efficient. Since July 2010, the quality control at BMW AG (press shop Regensburg, Germany / TR-30) uses an innovative measuring method (white light fringe projection). The conventional system which delivered only single measurement points of the object surface by using a touch probe, has now been replaced with this optical, non-contact technology for the dimensional…

SYSTEM STEINBICHLER COMET 5 CUSTOMER Bosch and Siemens Hausgeräte in Traunreut, Germany INNOVATIVE MEASUREMENT TECHNOLOGY ENSURES INCREASED PROCESS RELIABILITY Quality control for the series production of home appliances at Bosch and Siemens Hausgeräte in Traunreut, Germany, used to be based on coordinate measuring machines. Last year, the tactile measuring system was replaced by optical 3D measuring technology from Steinbichler Optotechnik in Neubeuern, Germany. This increased the reliability of the production process and reduced the costs. “Can you also precisely measure and analyze stamped sheet metal parts fully automatically with an optical system?” This is what instrument engineer Paul Spiel of…
SYSTEM STEINBICHLER COMET 5 Being a partner of Steinbichler Optotechnik GmbH, the French service company Metra, part of the Genaris group, was contracted by the “Musée des Arts et Métiers” in Paris to produce a photorealistic virtual 3D model of the Blériot XI, the first airplane ever to cross the channel between Calais and Dover in 1909. On the one hand, the virtual model was used for a detailed technical analysis of the design of the Blériot XI. Wind tunnel simulations showed the aerodynamical behavior of the construction and three-dimensional measures could be taken of the model. The interaction of…
SYSTEM STEINBICHLER ABIS II CUSTOMER Daimler AG Sindelfingen, Germany Daimler AG has introduced a fully automatic ABIS II surface inspection system as a central audit station at their press shop 2 in Sindelfingen, Germany.
