THERMAL IMAGING IN PLASTICS

In close co-operation with FLIR Australia, UltraCool3D are delighted to share these few case studies.


Warpage, Long Cycle Times, Tolerances •

Most plant engineers have spent endless hours in trying to control Warpage.

Many hours were spent on meeting tolerances of part.

Even after all efforts, residual stress in parts made part unacceptable in field service, can you afford brand damage?
