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.

Why Color Does Not Affect Readings

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 »
