Fully-automated 3D inline inspection process for 100% monitoring of glue and sealant beads

The BEADMASTER3D system ensures fully-automated quality control of glue and sealant beads. The system can be integrated directly into the production process and used at any cycle time.

With the sensor’s compact design, it is also suitable for confined production environments. Offering a 360° view, it inspects the applied beads completely, regardless of the direction in which the application nozzle is moving.

The flexible system from the Touch & Automate portfolio allows for a quick and easy set-up. It offers highly reliable quality control, regardless of the type and color of the glue, the substrate, and the component surface. It detects, measures, and evaluates the presence, precise position, height, and continuity of the beads applied.

With the optional repair function, defective glue beads can be corrected immediately. The BEADMASTER3D system makes it possible to monitor the key quality criteria of glue and sealant beads in a consistent, reliable, and efficient manner.
