Monitoring The Surface Temperature On Curing Epoxy Resin Samples
Epoxy resin systems are mostly used as a matrix material in fiber composites. In a variety of manufacturing processes, the corresponding resin system is processed in a flowable state. The material only acquires its rigidity in a subsequent curing process. This is characterized by an exothermic chemical reaction with a pronounced temperature dependence that must be monitored closely. This application note discusses how the VarioCAM® HD...  Continue Reading..

TEST AND MEASUREMENT EQUIPMENT PRODUCTS

Gentec-EO introduces the HP15KW-TUBE, a high-power detector for laser power measurement up to 15,000 W. This detector, a high-power water-cooled meter, is less sensitive to variations in water cooling temperature than other comparable products in the market.

BaySpec introduces Breeze-L™, the world’s smartest palm-held spectrometer in the Short-Wave Infrared (SWIR), with the longest wavelength coverage up to 2500 nm. Featuring proprietary miniaturized optics, the Breeze-L™ with its extended wavelength range of 1350-2500 nm, is highly efficient for maximum sensitivity with ultrafast acquisitions. For the first time, a smart spectrometer delivers close to laboratory performance in a palm-held form.

Zygo’s Nexview™ LS650 is a large format metrology system designed as an inspection tool for automated measurement of injection molding tooling, PCBs, glass panels, and other samples requiring an extended work volume up to 650 x 650 mm. It provides 2D and 3D measurements of a variety of surface features with sub-nanometer vertical precision and sub-micron lateral precision.

Ophir's Ariel is a self-contained, ultra-compact laser power meter for measuring high-power industrial lasers up to 8 KW. Designed for OEM and end-user applications in closed and confined spaces, such as additive manufacturing, metal cutting, and welding, the Ariel is a robust, battery-powered device that requires no water or fan cooling and is small enough to fit in the palm of a hand.

Ophir Photonics offers the 10K-W-BB-45 water cooled thermal power/energy laser measurement sensor designed for very high powers with a 45 mm aperture. The device can measure power from 100W to 11,000W and features a deflecting cone and annular absorber that withstands high power densities to 10kW/cm².

The FLIR RS8500 MWIR camera is a high-performance thermal science camera combined with an infrared telescope in a single weatherproof housing for long range tracking and measurement. The imaging system is built around a high-resolution 1280 x 1024 midwave indium antimonide detector that can deliver data at up to 180 frames per second.

The BEAMAGE-M2 is an automated M-squared measurement system comprising the BEAMAGE-4M, 5 lenses, 3 ND filters, and 2 external beam-steering mirrors. It is the only M2 system on the market equipped with a complete set of 50 mm optics and a sensor aperture of 11.3 x 11.3 mm.

The QE25SP-S-MT-D0 is a pyroelectric detector designed for laser energy measurements up to 3.0 J with a noise level down to 2 µJ for the MB coating. The modular design concept increases the power capabilities and uses two different cooling modules.
