Vorwerk has been using a VarioCAM HD® 700 with the IRBIS® 3 analysis software for several years in the development of our high-quality household products - especially the Thermomix. The imaging temperature measurement in combination with the wide range of analysis options support us in better understanding and being able to map thermal processes. In this way, we are able to make the cooking experience for our customers even more user-friendly and further optimize it. We particularly appreciate the collaboration and professional exchange with our partner InfraTec. In order to optimally meet our premium demands on our development and our products in the future, we will continue to rely on the use of thermography.

Dr. Michael Sickert, Head of Serial Support Thermomix and Kobold

Technische Universität Kaiserslautern / Fachbereich Maschinenbau und Verfahrenstechnik / Lehrstuhl für Strömungsmechanik und Strömungsmaschinen (SAM)

We are successfully using a VarioCAM® HDx head 600 to determine heat transfers on the side walls of a highly loaded turbine nozzle guide vane. In addition to the excellent measurement accuracy and the high detector resolution, we were convinced by the comprehensive software package that supports us in post-processing the measurement data. Furthermore, we are very satisfied with the friendly customer support.

Thank you very much for the excellent cooperation for more than 15 years. In my laboratory "Technical Diagnostics" at the Ansbach University of Applied Sciences, me and my students have been able to realise very many interesting projects with several infrared cameras from your portfolio. Starting with the selection of the camera, the introduction to the software program IRBIS® or the fast and profound help in case of problems, we have always been able to experience competent help from the company InfraTec. We certainly don't need to talk about the quality of the products. The total package, i.e. purchase advice, software advice and help and support in case of problems is simply great. Congratulations on the company's anniversary.
