Marveloc-CHARIOT with L-Ray for measuring thick to thin flooring and construction materials.
Use inline L-Ray laser triangulation sensing on Marvelo-CHARIOT machine platform to measure the thickness of carpet tiles, heterogeneous vinyl and PVC based LVT and foams. Accurately and affordably.
The Marveloc-CHARIOT is unique in its simplicity as it offers a single traveling sensor unit. Since only the L-Ray laser triangulation sensor travels across the product, no additional space next to the production line is required for the Chariot frame to move in or out. A small footprint and high mechanical rigidity characterize the Chariot, irrespective of product width. This means that it can be flexibly integrated into any new or existing production line.
The Marveloc L-Ray technology is based on one or more laser triangulation sensors. In a typical setup, the L-Ray sensor technology of Hammer-IMS applies two opposing laser sensors to measure material thickness in a differential way (one laser on top, the other below).
The choice of the specific sensor will be matched with the customer application at hand: high-range versus high-precision, optimized for rough or shiny surface, etc. The L-Ray based Chariot measures the thickness of a range of flooring and construction materials up to 200 mm thick.
- Carpet tiles: modular carpets, made of squares cut from wall-to-wall rolls, can be fitted together to make up a customized carpet.
- PVC based LVT: luxury elegantly designed vinyl tiles that are durable and easy to maintain. LVT can mimic the look of natural materials while it is able to withstand commercial environments.
- Heterogeneous vinyl: multi-layer vinyl with a printed top layer providing endless design possibilities, lasting performance and low maintenance cost.
- PVC foams: extreme toughness and durable properties make PVC foams popular for flooring and construction purposes. PVC foams are lightweight, (boiling) water proof, non-flammable and impact resistant.
