The size, shape, location and quality of urethane beads are critical in windshield installations to avoid leaks and assure overall structural integrity. We designed our Predator3D GlassMaster™ Pro system to meet specific process control needs for this application. This high-profile urethane bead inspection system offers Z-tracking robot guidance capability that enables the robot to adjust the vertical height to compensate for variability in part surface height.
GlassMaster Pro provides real-time 3D information on windshield urethane bead height, width, volume, location and detects skips or neck-downs with no external computer needed. GlassMaster Pro bead inspection is not affected by part color or ambient lighting changes, providing robust operation even in “black-on-black” situations where 2D techniques fail.
