Top Priority for Retreading

Tyre retreading, recycling and disposal are top priorities for The Tire Cologne. These themes are decisive for further development of the industry. This is because, in addition to retreading, thermal and material recycling offers interesting potential for development, Gerald Böse, CEO Koelnmesse, says. The segment of retreading and recycling has its own presence in Hall 9 of Koelnmesse. The TTC is the only event in the current trade fair calendar that deals with the theme of recycling as a supplement to retreading and establishes it as an independent area of focus, Böse stressed. At the centre of Hall 9,...

3D Smart Sensors: Advantages of high-speed,high-sensitivity rubber and tyre inspection

Automated quality control in the rubber and tyre (R&T) industry requires a 3D machine vision solution with specialised features and capabilities. This is because R&T applications involve scanning low-contrast, dark materials with complex geometry at very high speed––something that can only be achieved using robust 3D sensor technology. Limitations of 2D System engineers often turn to 2D machine vision sensors to solve their scanning challenges. Unfortunately, 2D on its own cannot provide an adequate solution. For one, 2D sensors require complex lighting to see the black on black contrast. In some applications the lighting is placed underneath the material...
