Maximum Efficiency: Non-Contact Temperature Measurement of Plastics


In plastics processing, where thermal processes play a particularly important role, temperature is the decisive measured variable. Only precise temperature control ensures high, consistent product quality.

Process monitoring is carried out using non-contact, infrared temperature measurement methods based on pyrometers for precise point measurements and infrared cameras for overall measurements.

Micro-Epsilon offers the right measurement technology from a single source for almost any material or polymer.

Learn in this White Paper how hot measuring objects, but also objects that are difficult to access or move quickly can be detected without any problems with extremely fast measuring and reaction times.

Non-contact thermometers and IR cameras are used for

  • Extrusion of blow films, flat films and plastic plates
  • Thermoforming
  • Laminating and shaping
  • Injection molding
  • Coating of plastics
  • Plastic welding
