The Dresden-based company InfraTec GmbH Infrarotsensorik und Messtechnik is a specialist for products and services in the field of infrared technology. It is active in all areas of thermographic applications, with its scope of performance ranging from the sales of thermographic cameras to the supply of thermal imaging systems and turn-key thermographic automation solutions. One of these solutions regarding the automotive industry is Thermal Rotate Check (TRC) â€“ a thermography-based test bench solution for contactless and non-destructive testing of rapidly rotating components such as brakes and tires. This system enables to scan brake discs under high-speed up to 105 kilohertz. InfraTec delivers and integrates TRC in existing brake test benches worldwide.
In this application the high-end camera series ImageIRÂ® is used, which is both developed and produced in-house by InfraTec. This thermographic camera series suits the needs of users from industry and science. Its cooled photon detectors permit images with up to (1,920 Ã— 1,536) IR pixels. InfraTecâ€™s range of products includes the high quality VarioCAMÂ® HD thermography systems, which are the result of close, long-standing cooperation between InfraTec and the premium manufacturer Jenoptik. This scope of performance is perfected by expert consultancy in the choice of equipment and by providing staff training when introducing thermal imaging technology.
InfraTec was founded in 1991 and, with its own capacities in manufacturing and development, employs about 200 staff now. For more than 25 years, the company has been supplying thermal imaging technology to demanding customers in the value chain of the automotive development and manufacturing. World market leaders such as Audi, BMW, Daimler and Volkswagen have been cooperating with InfraTec for many years when it comes to temperature data. These companies use thermal imaging systems for tasks in process control, quality assurance and in the field of research and development.
