Engineering Brief - SPOT AL EQS Pyrometer Delivers Aluminium Extrusion Measurement Accuracy
While aluminium's use is ubiquitous, its extrusion is not without challenges. Specifically, the metal has unique emissivity characteristics and reflectivity considerations that complicate accurate and repeatable temperature measurements. Understanding and controlling temperature within the extrusion process is critical, therefore, to delivering quality aluminium extruded parts.
This engineering brief looks at:
- Aluminium industry
- Emissivity and temperature
- Where measurement is mandatory
- AMETEK Land's SPOT AL EQS multi-wavelength pyrometer
- Global consumption of aluminium.
