Thickness measurement system for partially transparent insulation panels
In the manufacturing of plastic panels, thickness profile measurements must be carried out due to the necessary quality assurance. For this purpose two laseroptical displacement sensors are mounted on a traversing device, one underneath and one above the panel which passes along a defined path. The preprogrammed measuring points are sampled consecutively. Irrespective of the exact height position of the panels, the accurate material thickness is obtained by simple coupling of the synchronously measured distance values from both sensors. The output of the desired measurement log is realised with the aid of a PC system in the fully automatic sequence of the profile measurement table.
