05.29.19 -- The Versatility Of Infrared: Manufacturing, Electronics Design, Medical Device Testing, And More

 
Improving Additive Manufacturing With The Help Of Infrared
 
In contrast with subtractive manufacturing methods such as machining, additive manufacturing technologies create components directly from a computer model, adding material only where needed. This article discusses how infrared cameras can help manufacturers find systematic problems and determine what changes are needed to maintain product quality.
Thermal Imaging Cameras Allow Machines To Read Human Emotions
 

Will robots ever be able to interact with humans? Scientists are researching how machines can understand human emotions through thermal imaging. In order for artificial agents to set up contingent emotional and psychophysiological interaction with humans, the automatic nervous system must be monitored and translated efficiently.

Evaluating The Increase And Distribution Of Temperature During Dental Drilling Using A Thermal Imaging Camera
 

In some cases, the rotary speeds from dental drills can cause dangerously high temperatures, which can permanently damage bone tissue as they increase the denaturation of hard tissue proteins. This article discusses research on drilling techniques in a lab setting and demonstrates how infrared technology is used to study the optimal method for post space preparation of teeth.

From "Guess" To "Best": How Infrared Cameras Are Increasing Accuracy And Insight In Product Testing
 
This article explores how infrared cameras deliver a major data-gathering advantage over legacy approaches to temperature measurement, an advantage that can prevent costly product failures and safety hazards, providing an immediate and ongoing return on investment.
Improving Electronic Design And Testing With Infrared Imaging
 
This e-book addresses the inherent heating problems in electrical system designs. Whether in early rapid prototyping design, failure analysis and quality assurance, or troubleshooting on product returns, thermal measurement is a key tool for identifying problems and improving thermal management solutions.
