When it’s good to be in the red

DEMM Engineering & Manufacturing - - FRONT PAGE -

Ther­mal imag­ing is per­haps the fastest grow­ing tech­nol­ogy for elec­tri­cal, me­chan­i­cal and build­ing di­ag­nos­tics. Fo­cus­ing on me­chan­i­cal & elec­tri­cal ap­pli­ca­tions, this tech­nol­ogy pro­vides a fast and ef­fec­tive method of screen­ing elec­tri­cal pan­els, bear­ings, and mo­tors etc. for po­ten­tial fail­ures, and there­fore a “must have tool”, es­pe­cially when ap­plied to a pre­dic­tive main­te­nance plan.

Pur­chas­ing a cam­era can be a scary propo­si­tion for many. The latest range of cam­eras avail­able in the mar­ket place vary greatly in price, fea­tures, con­fig­u­ra­tions, auto fo­cus, man­ual fo­cus, in­ter­change­able lens, tem­per­a­ture ranges, ex­pres­sions such as point and shoot, the list goes on. Eurotec be­lieve that to be able to ad­vise and sell the ap­pro­pri­ate ther­mal imag­ing cam­eras suit­able for the ap­pli­ca­tion, our staff had to be­come com­pe­tent in this field. We called upon the ser­vices of Wayne Rud­dock, Di­rec­tor of Ad­vanced In­frared Re­sources and our team par­tic­i­pated in the Level One Ther­mog­ra­phy course. Prospec­tive cus­tomers feel con­fi­dent they have been ad­vised cor­rectly, and ap­pre­ci­ate that Eurotec not only sells the tech­nol­ogy but also fully backs it up start­ing with a free two-hour train­ing ses­sion from a Eurotec qual­i­fied ther­mo­g­ra­pher any­where in New Zealand.

The train­ing we re­ceived from Wayne was so com­pre­hen­sive and easy to fol­low Eurotec de­cided it was too good not to share with the rest of New Zealand. Eurotec has been host­ing the cour­ses at their Pen­rose Head Of­fice for two years now and these are prov­ing a re­sound­ing suc­cess. The 5-Day Level One Ther­mal Imag­ing Cer­ti­fi­ca­tion cour­ses cost only $1950+GST per at­tendee and in­cludes lunches, morn­ing and af­ter­noon teas. (Reg­is­tra­tion for the next course(s) in Oc­to­ber is un­der­way and ap­pli­ca­tion forms are avail­able for down­load from the Eurotec web­site).

Wayne has been in­volved in In­frared Ther­mog­ra­phy and In­frared Ther­mo­graphic Train­ing since 1978 and has been con­duct­ing Level 1 and Level 2 train­ing cour­ses through­out the world since 1980. He was the Level 3 ther­mo­g­ra­pher and North Amer­i­can Di­rec­tor of train­ing for an es­tab­lished in­frared com­pany from 1990 – 1999, at which time he be­came the di­rec­tor of Ad­vanced In­frared Re­sources. Mr Rud­dock is also cur­rently the Chair­man of the Mex­i­can In­sti­tute of In­frared Ther­mog­ra­phy and in­volved in the Aus­tralian & New Zealand In­sti­tute of In­frared Ther­mog­ra­phy.

In ad­di­tion to the Eurotec range of Testo ther­mal imag­ing cam­eras, other prod­ucts also in­clude in-line sin­gle point py­rom­e­ters, high speed process ther­mal imag­ing cam­eras from lead­ing man­u­fac­tur­ers DIAS and Op­tris. Another pop­u­lar Eurotec prod­uct is IRT Cro­nista by Grayess In­frared Soft­ware & So­lu­tions, an in­de­pen­dent re­port­ing and anal­y­sis soft­ware tool that will help users cre­ate the per­fect re­port re­gard­less of what cam­era they own. The soft­ware gives uses the f lex­i­bil­ity to use what­ever cam­era they like or pre­fer with­out be­ing locked into spe­cific soft­ware.
