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 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.
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 »
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.
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 »
Over 90 years young and still going strong in his second career after his retirement in 1985 from Polaroid: The Ultimate Secret
The Challenge Infrared temperature sensors are ideally suited for use in manufacturing, textiles, printing and other production settings. They provide a highly effective solution to ensure machinery does not overheat or otherwise malfunction. Oil, thread, dust, airborne chemicals and other… Read more »
General Information Flags, carpet, tiles and everything else that is printed on Large Format Printers with protective paint needs to be completely dried, cured or fixated before the end-products can be cut, folded, or otherwise worked on. Depending on the… Read more »
