Xiris Guide: SWIR Thermal Imaging

Combining a spectacular 120+ dB HDR capability in the Short-Wave InfraRed (SWIR) spectrum, the XIR-1800 thermal camera provides enhanced imaging of metal joining processes.

Check out the available resources we have below to learn more about the Xiris XIR-1800 Thermal Camera. 



6 Benefits of SWIR Thermal Imaging Technology Blog Series 

Unlike Mid-Wave Infrared (MWIR) or Long-Wave Infrared (LWIR) light, which are emitted from the object itself, Short-Wave Infrared (SWIR) light is like visible light in that photons are reflected or absorbed by an object, providing the strong contrast needed for high resolution imaging.

Learn about the 6 resulting benefits of SWIR thermal imaging technology through our series of blogs.

Captured Video from a SWIR Thermal Camera

The Xiris XIR-1800 Thermal Camera can reveal the welding process in ways you have never seen. With the thermal camera, users can measure temperatures and capture images clearly even in harsh environments with smoke and fumes to better detect any issues that are happening throughout the process, providing operators the ability to perform corrective action before significant problems occur.

E-Book on SWIR Imaging for Metal Additive Manufacturing

Metal Additive Manufacturing is a fast-growing industry that produces 3D parts, layer by layer, from a powder or wire-based material. While this process offers several benefits to different businesses, many process and quality control challenges can arise due to the complexity of the MAM-produced parts.

This whitepaper outlines the traditional challenges faced in monitoring of AM process such as harsh environments, changing scene temperatures, high contrast scenes and more. The whitepaper also discusses the solutions and benefits that SWIR thermal imaging offers. Download your complimentary copy below.
