Camera based temperature measuring system »E-MAqS«

»E-MAqS« is a camera based temperature measuring system for sophisticated tasks. It is a low-cost alternative to other commercially available thermographic systems. »E-MAqS« is typically used in combination with the »LompocPro« control.


One main application is the laser beam hardening. For industrial laser cladding processes, however, »E-MAqS« 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.
