Thermal Process Monitoring for Thermoforming

Do you validate and optimize your thermoforming, vacuum forming or compression molding processes with closed loop process control capabilities? Thermal Machine Vision Solutions are the #1 solution for thermoformers being used today. By thermally inspecting parts after the heating cycle, analysis can be used to validate the heating process. Feedback is provided to your PLC, enabling immediate corrective actions to your heating zones.  Inspection and control of heated components is key to producing quality parts, increasing throughput, reducing scrap rates, and validating product control.
