Sponsored: Testo 'keeps heart of industry beating'

27 June 2013

Based in Alton, Hampshire, Testo has been operating for over 30 years as the UK subsidiary of Testo AG, selling products throughout the UK and Ireland. Testo Limited also offers instrument service and calibration from our independently accredited ISO 9001:2008 and ISO17025 laboratory.

The requirements for practical measurement solutions are becoming increasingly more complex and customised. The company has continually tracked and recognised these customer requirements in industry and trade, and to translate them permanently into new cost-effective technologies. We carry out our own intensive research, and for decades have been at the cutting edge of our sectors.

Testo is a leading manufacturer of high quality measuring instruments for many applications and sectors, such as the manufacturing and engineering sectors. Innovative measurement technology from Testo supports production processes in every phase, from development to the finished product. This embraces for example Thermal imaging to monitor electrical boards and identify worn parts in machinery through to Welfare Kits to ensure the environment in which employees work is comfortable, safe and legal.

We heavily invest in product research and development at our headquarters in Germany to guarantee we offer our customers instruments that deliver durability, functionality and ease of use. For the purposes of lowering costs in production and in the final product, the industrial sector is reliant on resource efficient processes on machines whose mechanical, electric or pneumatic drives consume as little energy as possible. The expression used is “green automation” – the technical production prerequisite for “green” consumer products. Testo’s range of industrial inspection tools are perfectly designed to ensure your operations are as “Eco-Friendly” as your finalised output.

Manufacturing goods with consistently high standard of technology, investing in the most modern equipment, solid background knowledge and years of experience are the basis for you being able to safely reproduce high quality results. One of the most important prerequisites for industrial manufacturing is the monitoring of all parameters which influence quality, such as temperature and humidity, but also flow velocity, pressure or gas concentration. Testo offers reliable measurement systems, which can consistently monitor and regulate the production and the optimum adjustment of your systems. Therefore increasing product quality and reducing energy consumption.

Newly improved, high quality, affordable Thermal Imaging Cameras – The use of thermography cameras has caused a quantum leap in the progress of predictive maintenance inspection programs, across industrial domains. It has also revolutionised the industry by contributing to substantial cost savings for manufacturers, while enhancing the quality of inspections for service providers. Use on a daily basis to help save time, reduce costs and ensure that all relevant systems are operating properly and safely. In mechanical systems Infrared Cameras are useful for detecting irregularities usually caused by friction due to improper lubrication, misalignment, worn components or mechanical loading anomalies. As one of the fastest rising preventive maintenance tools in industrial inspections, our cameras monitor mechanical and electrical systems within the production processes.

The key benefit of utilising Thermal Imaging as a maintenance tool is that, it allows inspections to take place during live operations. Imagine being able to inspect bearing housings in the production line, without having to cease production or disassemble the machinery. With thermal imaging, heat profiles of important components highlighting abnormalities can be inspected and detected in real time, allowing quick and effective maintenance checks on any machinery.
