Aluminium Die Preheat Thermometer

The Aluminium Die Thermometer (ADT) is designed specifically to provide temperature measurement of the die prior to being loaded into the press.

Why Measure Temperature?

  • Dies are preheated because hot, extruding aluminium coming into contact with a cold die would solidify immediately causing the process to stop.
  • Many dies will be placed in a die oven to be preheated before being loaded into the press.
  • Occasionally, a die will be inadvertently removed for loading before it has fully preheated to the specified temperature, typically ~450 °C.
  • An under temperature die must be detected before it is loaded into the press and causes a significant process stoppage with resulting loss in process efficiency and profitability.
