A new infrared sensor offers enhanced capabilities that could be useful for measuring sheet temperature in thermoforming. The Marathon MM series sensor from Raytek Corp., Santa Cruz, Calif., has through-the-lens and laser sighting that are said to overcome the challenge of “aiming” accurately between densely packed heating elements in the oven. For sheet-temperature measurement outside the oven, the new sensor generates an automatic video image to document exactly when and where temperatures fall outside of accepted parameters. The instrument can be programmed to obtain temperature data automatically at different locations.
