New technologies for taking measurements

The requirements for practical measurement solutions are becoming increasingly more complex and customised. Testo has made it its business to recognise these customer requirements in industry and trade, and to translate them permanently into new technologies. The company has been carrying out its own intensive research, and for decades has been at the cutting edge of its sectors.

Testo is a leading manufacturer of high quality measuring instruments for many applications and sectors, such as the Industrial Production & Manufacturing sector. Innovative measurement technology from Testo supports production processes in every phase, from development to the finished product. Examples include thermal imaging to monitor electrical boards and identify worn parts in machinery, through to welfare kits to ensure the environment in which employees work is comfortable, safe and legal.

The company invests heavily in product research and development to guarantee it offers instruments that deliver durability, functionality and ease of use. For the purposes of lowering costs in production, and in the final product, the industrial sector is reliant on resource efficient machinery whose mechanical, electrical or pneumatic drives consume as little energy as possible. The expression used is ‘green automation’, the technical production prerequisite for ‘green’ consumer products. Testo’s range of industrial inspection tools are perfectly designed to ensure your machinery is maintained to be as eco-friendly as possible.

Reliable solutions for monitoring all parameters

Manufacturing to a consistently high standard of technology by investing in the most modern equipment, solid background knowledge and years of experience are the basis for you being able to safely reproduce high quality results.

One of the most important prerequisites for industrial production and manufacturing is the monitoring of all parameters which influence quality, such as temperature and humidity, but also flow velocity, pressure or gas concentration. Testo’s reliable measurement systems can consistently monitor and regulate the production and the optimum adjustment of your environment, thus reducing energy consumption.

Thermography benefits

The use of thermography cameras has caused a quantum leap in the progress of predictive maintenance and inspection programs, across industrial domains. It has also revolutionised the industry by contributing to substantial cost savings for manufacturers, while enhancing the quality of inspections for service providers. Use on a daily basis to help save time, reduce costs and ensure all relevant systems are operating properly and safely.

In mechanical systems Infrared Cameras are useful for detecting irregularities usually caused by friction due to improper lubrication, misalignment, worn components or mechanical loading anomalies. Thermal Imagers are one of the fastest rising preventive maintenance tools in industrial inspections for monitoring mechanical and electrical systems within the production processes.

The key benefit of utilising Thermal Imaging as a maintenance tool is that it allows inspections to take place during live operations. Imagine being able to inspect bearing housings on the production line, without having to cease production or disassemble the machinery. With thermal imaging, heat profiles of important components can highlight abnormalities allowing further focused inspection and effective maintenance on any machinery.
