AMETEK Land to Showcase Latest Aluminium Applications Pyrometer for Extruders and Rolling Mills at Aluminium China 2017

AMETEK Land will exhibit its product innovations, the SPOT AL EQS (Aluminium Extrusion Quench and Strip) pyrometer and the SPOT Actuator at ALUMINIUM China 2017, July 19-21, 2017, in Shanghai, China, Stand 1L38. 
 
Aluminium China 2017 is Asia's top aluminium industry platform for the complete aluminium industry supply chain, bringing together leading industry figures, cutting edge technologies and advanced applications.
 
The SPOT AL EQS pyrometer is an extremely flexible instrument with pre-configured algorithms that provides high accuracy and a three-in-one capability specifically for aluminium applications at the extrusion press exit, in the extrusion press quench zone, and in aluminium hot rolling mills. In addition, the pyrometer’s algorithms can be easily customised and tuned for bespoke applications and uncommon aluminium grades. 
 
Designed specifically to work in low emissivity environments, the SPOT AL EQS has the ability to measure a wide temperature range from 200° to 700°C / 392° to 1292°F.  The SPOT AL EQS combines the latest, cutting-edge temperature detector design with the most advanced processing algorithms making it an extremely accurate and repeatable pyrometer with an industry-leading fast response time. 
 
Designed in close collaboration with industry-leading aluminium producers and plant control system engineers, the SPOT AL EQS pyrometer is helping lead the way in improving aluminium extrusion and strip plant throughput, quality and energy efficiency. 
 
The SPOT Actuator provides enhanced target alignment for AMETEK Land’s new SPOT AL EQS (Aluminium Extrusion, Quench and Strip).  The SPOT Actuator is a motorised unit which is designed for use at the die exit or quench exit on aluminium extrusion presses and is capable of operating in automatic or operator controlled modes to suit the needs of an individual aluminium plant.
 
Compact, quick and easily configurable, the SPOT Actuator is designed for mounting the SPOT AL EQS pyrometer onto the press face or suitable part of the press superstructure in close proximity.  It may also be used for alignment at the exit of a quench box or nearby structure to allow for aiming onto wandering sections exiting the quench.  In addition, the SPOT Actuator allows for rapid and precise alignment, following die changes, so it can be repositioned on multi-cavity strands or where it maximises the signal strength on narrow sections.
