For almost all casting processes the amount of slag needs to be monitored and controlled. There are two common methods to observe slag concentration: Electromagnetic induction and IR-radiation properties. The fast Optris PI Cameras are able to observe the casting process and calculate the slag amount in real time. This improves the yield.
