Temperature has a direct relationship to curing speed: the higher the temperature the faster the cure. Yet, excessive heat may cause the substrate to distort, which can result in registration difficulties or substrate damage. Heat may also cause UV cure system components to fail. Therefore, understanding temperature is critical to ensuring proper cure and to safeguarding the substrate and system from potential failure.
The HIGH TEMP IR PROBEMETER™
is a pocket-sized IR thermometer that measures up to 1022F (550C). Comes with laser pointer to improve aim and audible alarm. Unit has an extra large 3-1/2 digit (reads to 1022F / 550C) multi-function backlit LCD with data hold, adjustable high/low set points with audible beeper alarm to alert user when temperature exceeds the programmed set points, and adjustable emissivity (0.1 to 1.00).
