AMETEK Land (Land Instruments) is the world’s leading manufacturer of monitors and analysers for industrial infrared non-contact temperature measurement, combustion efficiency and environmental pollutant emissions. Through their trusted range of leading-edge technologies, they are chosen the world over to deliver the highly accurate measurement solutions that precisely meet every customer’s process needs. With unrivalled applications knowledge, choosing AMETEK Land ensures the highest standards of process safety, process control and product quality are reached.
AMETEK Land will showcase intelligent temperature measurement for aluminium extrusion processes at the Future Aluminium Forum 2018. Accurate temperature measurement is critical in quality aluminium extrusion production. The introduction of new high tech aluminium alloys designed for high end applications such as aerospace, automotive or safety products have increasing mechanical specifications and decreasing product weights, the extrusion and quench process temperatures are crucial to meet the extremely high requirements and specifications of the final products.
The SPOT AL EQS (Aluminium Extrusion, Quench and Strip) application pyrometer combined with the new SPOT Actuator enable unprecedented and highly accurate process temperature measurements and intelligent product and process tracking to continuously monitor temperature and improve process and product quality. Extruders who produce lower quality profiles can increase production rates because press speeds can be increased.
AMETEK Land is part of the Process & Analytical Instruments Division of AMETEK, Inc., a global supplier of high-end analytical instrumentation.
