Course: IR-ThermalSystem – First steps

280.24 $ incl. tax


Visualize temperatures during the injection molding is important in order to evaluate the process.

This is what IR-ThermalSystem will do next to the mold using its specialized software and hardware components.

This course explains how simple and efficient the system works for quality control.

  • Create individual settings for each mold.
  • Draw the right conclusions.


About the course: IR-ThermalSystem - First steps

Constantly, quality standards on plastic parts are getting higher. Moreover, other topics such as cycle time and energy saving are moving more into focus and demand.
Therefore, to meet these and more requirements, it is necessary to understand the full process and have all relevant data at hand.
This is where IR-ThermalSystem adds value to the process.
Setters and quality managers can identify potential defects faster while using the thermal view.
This course discusses how IR-ThermalSystem operates and what steps are needed in order to use the system during the set up of the mold.


This course is for

Everyone who is curious about the topic.
This includes especially people working as:

  • Setter
  • Injection molder
  • Quality manager
  • Department leader

Since 1994, I have been working in the field of simulation. From the beginning, the focus was set to the injection molding process.
Over the time, I have had the chance to work with all known simulation software packages, as well as I have simulated several hundreds of parts and molds.

Since 2006, I am CEO of the PLEXPERT GmbH, Germany, and responsible for new developments.

If we take a look to the process chain of producing a plastic part, simulation is one of the fundamental things to start with.
If it comes to cycle time and part costs, cooling simulation is important.

And this is where the idea of IR-ThermalSystem was born.
Setters were asking about the accuracy of cooling simulations and how can you prove the value of simulation better than using an infrared camera and check the part temperature?

Over the years, IR-ThermalSystem has grown more and more in functionality and today it is much more appreciated on the shopfloor level.

This course is for all who are new to IR-ThermalSystem and will explain the basics needed to start using the benefit of the system.
