Temperature plays the most important role if it comes to injection molding.
Before the part is ejected it is good practice to analyse the temperature distribution on the surface.
This is where IR-ThermalSystem comes into play.
It consists of an infrared camera, a magnetic stand, cables some electronic device and a specialized software (called IRDAS), that records
all the critical information from one shot to another.
The system used for quality control, supports a centralized database and can be connected to several other
products that are useful in the injection molding process.
This includes DiagBes as well as Xscale and Xmold.
Evaluating temperature helps to identify short shot and flashing as well as proper functionining of the cooling channels.
