Injection Molding in the Focus of Industry 4.0
The Thermal Fingerprint
In injection molding, the largest part of errors can be traced back to the tempering of the injection mold. Inline detection directly at the source can prevent errors, enhance quality, and consequently save money.
Pyrometer and infrared camera - a perfect team
Industrial applications in which non-contact temperature measurement must take place range from Research & Development, through production to maintenance. In most cases, infrared temperature measurement technology is used. Selecting suitable devices is not totally straightforward. As well as the decision between pyrometer and infrared camera, many other boundary conditions must be taken into consideration.
Thermal monitoring of casting process
Ever growing increases in production efficiency also put additional strain on continuos casting equipment and therefore call for comprehensive process monitoring features. Especially in the field of temperatur sensing this phenomenon has driven many developments: the technology has become less expensive while offering greater accuracy, so that its widespread use has become worthwhile and affordable. Specialist companies have rolled out many product innovations in recent years. For plant operators this technology is worth the investment, as it allows them to prevent costly cast aborts before they happen, while at the same time improving the quality of their products.
