Infrared Reflexions

The Infrared Measurement / Thermography Newsletter from InfraTec

Dear Readers,

“Necessity is the mother of invention” – this proverb often comes to mind in the course of the Corona pandemic. On the one hand, innovative ideas emerge from necessity and are quickly put into practice! On the other hand, those affected by the serious economic consequences through no fault of their own pay a high price. Let us keep our fingers crossed that after Corona the world will have made many virtues out of necessity! So far, we at InfraTec look back on our 30th company anniversary this year and have come through the crisis unscathed with a lot of luck. It was helpful that our products – as components in respirators or as monitoring systems to detect elevated body temperature – were in high demand. In satisfying this demand, we too became inventive – as you will read in the one article of our thermography newsletter.

With kind regards from Dresden

Dr. Matthias Krauß
Managing Director and Partner

Use of High-Speed-Thermography in Laser High Temperature Capillary Gap Soldering

Lasers are extremely versatile tools in industry and manufacturing technology. Due to their flexibility, they serve as a key technology for implementing the goals of industry 4.0. Although laser cutting and welding are nowadays regarded as turnkey technologies, the majority of laser applications, for example joining of hybrid materials, 3D printing or ultra-short pulse processing, still require considerable research and development.
