Plastic
The manufacture of plastic products relies on correct heating of the polymer before it is shaped into the desired profile. This requires accurate, high-resolution temperature measurements to support consistent product quality.

The plastic must be sufficiently heated to be soft enough for moulding or extrusion, but not reach a temperature that will damage its properties and lead to a substandard product.

AMETEK Land has provided the plastic industry with high-quality temperature measurement solutions for more than 60 years. Our high-resolution process imagers set the industry benchmark, supporting efficiency and product quality control.
