Windshield Urethane Bead Measurement
with Laser Triangulation Systems


VisionGauge software is capable of measuring the width & height of the sealant bead

The common way that windshields are bonded to a vehicle is through a urethane bead based adhesive. Given that there are many laws regarding the minimal holding strength the sealant must have, accurate measuring of the amount used is paramount. Our VisionGaugeŽ OnLine software is capable of measuring the width & height of the sealant bead used in the automotive industry.

This is possible thanks to our Laser triangulation systems. These systems include a high-resolution camera as well as a LASER oriented at 45 degrees relative to the camera’s optical centerline. The LASER projects a very thin and straight line at the point of measurement. By measuring the LASER line’s offset across the camera’s field-of-view, the system can automatically measure, very accurately, the height of the sealant. These laser measurements are carried out when the sealant bead is still un-cured, and thus "gelatinous".

The system can automatically measure, very accurately, the height of the sealant.

Above you can see a sample image of our Laser triangulation system working on a urethane bead. Our systems have proven accuracy when measuring urethane beads. Furthermore, the systems are fully customizable to better fit your application. For more information please contact us.
