Conductive sensors

Conductive sensors quantify heat transfer by conduction in solids.

In casting processes, they would be ideally be placed at the interface between matter and mold. For robustness and non-marking reasons, we place them inside the tool. Value obtained in the tool approaches thermal gradient between the processed material and mold, giving thereby access to materials developments and thermally-linked changes during processing.

Applications: Characterization processes like :

And of course, many other possibilities (metallic casting)...
