The drop forging process involves a heated metal billet being inserted into a die and then hammered until it assumes the shape of the die. Temperature monitoring is important to ensure the billet is sufficiently heated to obtain the desired properties and can be easily shaped.

Even small temperature deviations can affect the quality of the finished product, so accurate temperature monitoring is essential. The hammering operations will damage any contact devices, so non-contact methods must be used.

Providing an accurate non-contact measurement, the SPOT R100 thermometer or Cyclops 100L are optimised for temperature measurements on metal. It supplies the data needed to support consistent product quality, and ensure the metal is imbued with the desired levels of strength and stability.

Recommended Products - SPOT R100 and Cyclops 100L.
