Quality control and assurance

Simply see more with thermal imagers from Testo

Poor product quality or disruptions to the production process can have far-reaching financial consequences for any company.

To minimise these risks, we recommend using thermography to carry out your process and quality control - by purchasing a thermal imager from Testo. You can guarantee that your production control is in safe hands by depending on thermography in your work. Testo's thermographic instruments offer non-contact detection of thermal irregularities, enabling you to optimise your processes.

Using a thermal imager can enable you to achieve efficient quality monitoring.

Quality control

Production of diecast plastic components

Testo thermal imagers are used for targeted monitoring of the cooling process in the development and production of diecast plastic components. If diecast components cool very irregularly, differing material densities occur within the diecast components. This leads to reduced stability and poor fitting. Thermography can be used to monitor and document the cooling process. This enables problematic areas to be detected early on during the development stage and remedied straight away.

More reliability in your quality and production control

Testo thermal imagers ensure precise situation analyses, thereby supporting the product process control and quality assurance. Not only are these able to detect foreign bodies in production processes, they also offer rapid, non-contact detection of anomalies in the heat distribution of components. Systematic control: Thermography.

Quality assurance

Monitor injection and die-casting moulds

A thermal imager can be used to monitor multi-cavity moulds for inhomogeneous temperature distribution. “Temperature nests” and critical temperatures can also be detected. Using thermography in this area will help you to enhance the quality of your injection-moulded parts and reduce waste.

Monitor forming processes

Forming processes such as rolling, bending and deep-drawing can be monitored and optimised with respect to the resulting material quality. You can use a thermal imager to monitor and optimise the maximum generated temperatures as well as complete temperature and cooling profiles. Therefore thermography can help you to easily rule out any changes in material quality.

Checking product quality

Detect quality defects on injection-moulded parts or blanks, such as shrinkage cavities and other inclusions due to temperature differences during cooling. You can also use thermography to determine the wear of the injection-moulding tools or casting moulds used.
