An Update From Us on COVID-19

On March 23rd, Charlie Baker, the governor of the state of Massachusetts placed an order requiring all “nonessential” businesses in the state to close or operate remotely.

Increasing Safety, Reliability and Speed for Diagnostic, Skin, and Medical Treatments

For processes such as diagnostic procedures, skin treatments and medical interventions where blood or saline solutions are involved, temperature monitoring and control are essential in the success and reliability of the procedure. Employing IRt/c technology increases the speed and reliability of the procedures while assuring patient safety.

Controlling Vacuum Forming and Thermoforming Processes

For forming plastics, radiant heat with an IRt/c is an excellent combination of heating method and control. They work extraordinarily well together since both the heating and measuring occur right at the surface, where the plastic is located. The IRt/c reading is unaffected by reflections from the heater since the spectral response of the 6 to 14-micron IRt/c lens filters out the shorter wavelengths of the radiant heater energy.

Exergen Global Announces Sensoranics Methodology

Exergen Global today introduced its Sensoranics Methodology, a unique, proprietary, integrated approach to developing best-in-class infrared temperature sensor solutions for complex production processes across all industries.

IRT/C Monitors Plastic Injection Mold Clearing

Plastic Injection Mold Clearing

In high volume plastic injection molding machinery, a molded part that does not clear the mold can cause serious problems, including a long downtime to clean up or make repairs. A particularly useful property of the mold is its shininess,… Read more »

Blow Molding

When a set temperature is reached, the preform is moved to the blow molding section of the machine, it is molded in the shape by applying pressurized air.

Why Color Does Not Affect Readings

Temperature by Color

In many IRt/c installations, such as paint curing, web drying, printing, etc., the temperature control system must be able to accurately measure materials with a variety of colors. Ideally the same calibration set-up would be used for all colors, rather… Read more »
