Camera based temperature measuring system "Emaqs"

"Emaqs" is a camera based temperature measuring system for sophisticated tasks. It is a low-cost alternative to other commercially available thermographic systems. Emaqs  is typically used in combination with the "LOMPOCpro" control.


One main application is the laser beam hardening. For industrial laser cladding processes, however, "Emaqs" is used as well. In these cases, the molten pool size is used as the controlled quantity instead of the surface temperature. A lot of other applications like, for instance, heat conduction welding or brazing are possible since frame grabbing and frame analysis can be customized.
