Increased Resolution with New EverSharp Feature VarioCAM® for Highest Demands in Thermal Imaging
The uncooled thermal imaging camera series VarioCAM® High Definition by InfraTec, equipped with a globally unique detector of (1,024 x 768) IR pixels, can be used for multiple purposes in various industries. The broad range of applications is made possible by the multitude of different equipment lines available. The models "research" and "inspect" are available for mobile operations, for example, while the “head” version is designed for stationary tasks in harsh environments.
Designed for continuous operation, the integrated opto-mechanical MicroScan unit is now in its third generation and enables the inclusion of thermal image sequences with a resolution of (2,048 x 1,536) IR pixels. Even the smallest structures and defects can now be detected efficiently and safely on large-scale measurement objects.
With the innovative “EverSharp” feature, all object structures in the image scene are clear, regardless of their distance from the camera and the lens used. To achieve this, special algorithms are used to create a thermal image with multiple focal lengths automatically combined, so that only structures that are clearly in focus are represented in the resulting thermal image. As a result, detailed thermal images are created in which all objects appear in the highest possible clarity.
A lot of useful functions of the camera series, such as the "permanent autofocus" integrated laserrangefinder, the distance-dependent display of measurable object size, and the wide range of optics come together to support the capture of usable thermal images. In combination with the user-specific tailored thermography software packages of IRBIS® 3-family, professional thermographers now have a working tool in VarioCAM.
Metsä Fibre, part of Finnish forestry group Metsä Group, will take over the maintenance operations of its production units as part of its own organisation. At present, the maintenance of the company’s pulp mills and the Rauma sawmill in Finland has been outsourced to the maintenance company Oy Botnia Mill Service Ab, which is jointly owned by Metsä Fibre Oy and Caverion Oyj.
EU Project Helps Strengthen Transition to a Circular Economy Through Tracking of Critical Raw Materials
A new three-year EIT RawMaterials funded scheme, known as CSyARES (Circular System for Assessing Rare Earth Sustainability), will help companies improve the transparency and sustainability of their supply chains when it comes to critical materials.
