By using a sensor to determine one end point in each of the mechanical loops, both the claws and the traversing mechanism could operate repeatedly without tolerance build-up.
At each of these ten axial stations, the probe traversed along the radial direction by using the traversing mechanism in steps of 4mm and the hot wire anemometer captured voltage readings.

These systems, which have emerged in the last five years, chop glass or other fibers directly at the mixing head, where the fibers are wetted by the PUR foam mix as it is dispensed into an open mold by a robotic traversing mechanism.
It includes a load cell at the doctor blade to maintain consistent past level, a gamma-backscatter gauge (adopted from thermoplastic extrusion) on a traversing mechanism to monitor sheet weight per unit area, and continuous weighing of each box as the SMC is festooned into it.
I no longer had to struggle mentally with the calibrations on the elevation and traversing mechanisms of the Browning machinegun tripod, and I never again had to tote around another 20-pound BAR plus, what seemed like, another 20-pounds of loaded BAR magazines.
