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.
