WATERTOWN, MA, and GLEN ELLYN, IL -- (Marketwired) -- 07/15/14 -- Exergen today announced the integration of their customized IRt/c sensor into two of M&R's quartz flash units: the Red Chili D 1418 and the freestanding Cayenne D, M&R's most sophisticated and versatile quartz flash cure system. The units required higher intensity radiant lamps and/or more densely packed lamps. This caused not only a restricted view of the T-shirt area from the sensor location above the lamps, but also overheated the body temperature of the sensor itself. With the customized IRt/c sensor, the Red Chili D 1418 and the Cayenne D now deliver significantly faster curing speed without compromising quality.
"We're always looking for ways to increase flash curing speed and quality in the most cost efficient way possible. That meant working with an innovative and industry-leading sensor vendor to find the sensor that met our requirements. That vendor was Exergen Global and the solution was the customized IRt/c sensor," said Boguslaw Magda, M&R's vice president of engineering and manufacturing technology.
"Complex problems sometimes require simple solutions. The combined teams of Rich Hoffmann, CEO of M&R, and our team were able to tackle the problems in such a way that we not only solved it pretty quickly but also very neatly. The result is a completely customized sensor that works like a charm. The sensors have been delivered to M&R and the rollout of the Red Chili D and Cayenne Flash Cure Units has started," said Dr. Frank Pompei, CEO of Exergen Corporation.
Product information: The Exergen IRt/c sensor lines are the most reliable, highest-performing IR sensors in the world. Key features include self-powered, intrinsically safe, repeatability 0.02 degrees F (0.01 degrees C), resolution approx. 0.0003 degrees C and very important an interchangeability of +/- 1%. One of the main reasons for the unique performance of the IR sensor is the custom designed and built thermopile based sensor. The Exergen and M&R mechanical teams found the right solution for both the Cayenne D and the Red Chili D 1418 flash cure units, and the new IRt/c Standard 4 Wire model, including an embedded contact thermocouple, is now in use.
About the Cayenne D Quartz Flash Care Unit: Cayenne D is M&R's most sophisticated and versatile freestanding quartz flash cure system. Its medium-wave sealed tungsten filament quartz lamps feature adjustable intensity, and its instant-on flash cure technology conserves energy by reverting to standby when the screen printing press is idle. The digitally-controlled curing lamps are divided into three flashing zones that can be operated independently or in any combination. Using fewer flash cure zones on small screen print areas reduces ambient heat, lowers energy costs, and leads to faster substrate cooling.

About the Red Chili D Quartz 1418 Flash Cure Unit: The freestanding Red Chili D quartz flash cure system uses medium-wave sealed tungsten filament quartz lamps, and it works with both automatic and manual screen printing presses. Instant-on flash cure technology conserves energy by reverting to standby status when the screen printing press is idle, and the curing lamps are divided into three flashing zones, which can be operated independently or in any combination. Using fewer flash cure zones on small screen print areas reduces ambient heat, lowers energy costs, and leads to faster substrate cooling.

Data-intensive companies that strive to gain insights from data using Big Data analytics tools can gain tremendous competitive advantage by deploying data-centric storage. Organizations generate large volumes of data, the vast majority of which is unstructured. As the volume and velocity of this unstructured data increases, the costs, risks and usability challenges associated with managing the unstructured data (regardless of file type, size or device) increases simultaneously, including end-to-...

Docker is an excellent platform for organizations interested in running microservices. It offers portability and consistency between development and production environments, quick provisioning times, and a simple way to isolate services. In his session at DevOps Summit at 16th Cloud Expo, Shannon Williams, co-founder of Rancher Labs, will walk through these and other benefits of using Docker to run microservices, and provide an overview of RancherOS, a minimalist distribution of Linux designed...

Sensor-enabled things are becoming more commonplace, precursors to a larger and more complex framework that most consider the ultimate promise of the IoT: things connecting, interacting, sharing, storing, and over time perhaps learning and predicting based on habits, behaviors, location, preferences, purchases and more. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Tom Wesselman, Director of Communications Ecosystem Architecture at Plantronics, will examine the still nascent IoT as it is coalescing, includin...

The Internet of Things (IoT) is causing data centers to become radically decentralized and atomized within a new paradigm known as “fog computing.” To support IoT applications, such as connected cars and smart grids, data centers' core functions will be decentralized out to the network's edges and endpoints (aka “fogs”). As this trend takes hold, Big Data analytics platforms will focus on high-volume log analysis (aka “logs”) and rely heavily on cognitive-computing algorithms (aka “cogs”) to mak...

When it comes to the Internet of Things, hooking up will get you only so far. If you want customers to commit, you need to go beyond simply connecting products. You need to use the devices themselves to transform how you engage with every customer and how you manage the entire product lifecycle. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Sean Lorenz, Technical Product Manager for Xively at LogMeIn, will show how “product relationship management” can help you leverage your connected devices and the data th...

In the consumer IoT, everything is new, and the IT world of bits and bytes holds sway. But industrial and commercial realms encompass operational technology (OT) that has been around for 25 or 50 years. This grittier, pre-IP, more hands-on world has much to gain from Industrial IoT (IIoT) applications and principles. But adding sensors and wireless connectivity won’t work in environments that demand unwavering reliability and performance. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Ron Sege, CEO of Echelon...

Cryptography has become one of the most underappreciated, misunderstood components of technology. It’s too easy for salespeople to dismiss concerns with three letters that nobody wants to question. ‘Yes, of course, we use AES.’ But what exactly are you trusting to be the ultimate guardian of your data? Let’s face it – you probably don’t know. An organic, grass-fed Kobe steak is a far cry from a Big Mac, but they’re both beef, right? Not exactly. Crypto is the same way. The US government require...

Docker is becoming very popular--we are seeing every major private and public cloud vendor racing to adopt it. It promises portability and interoperability, and is quickly becoming the currency of the Cloud. In his session at DevOps Summit, Bart Copeland, CEO of ActiveState, discussed why Docker is so important to the future of the cloud, but will also take a step back and show that Docker is actually only one piece of the puzzle.
