Power Partnership Delivers Custom Temperature Sensor

Exergen Global is partnering with VDL Group to provide a custom soluton for HP Indigo 10000, 20000, and 30000 Series Digital Presses that ensures optmal print quality by precisely measuring drum temperature. VDL Group will manufacture, test and ship Exergen’s proprietary-design Refectve Cone as well as the bracket required to mount the Cone, and will integrate Exergen’s micro IRt/c infrared temperature sensor into the Cone.


Precise measurement is critcal in print producton. For example, the Cone and its metal bracket assembly weighs 3.5 kilograms and sits a mere 4 millimeters from the drum – a manufacturing mistake of even 1/10th of a millimeter could cause essental drum damage costng thousands of dollars. Additonally if printer substrates measure below or above very specifc temperature ranges, then the end print quality can be degraded. Overheatng can also damage the drum, sensors and other equipment. Exergen’s Refectve Cone and IRt/c sensor contnually provide HP with drum temperature measurement that is accurate to within 0.1°C. Its IRt/c sensors measure substrates at 1200°C.
