AMETEK Land, one of the major innovators in infrared non-contact temperature measurement and combustion and environmental monitoring equipment, is celebrating 70 years of business.

The company is using its 70th anniversary year to build on its reputation for providing accurate and innovative temperature measurement solutions and investing in and creating new products.

Justin Smith, Managing Director of AMETEK since 2015, explains, “Our vison during this, our 70th anniversary year, is to develop products that are geared not only to our current core business sectors in heavy processing industries, like steel, but also to the next generation of manufacturing. Those products will be affordable as well as help industries, such as aluminium, glass, metals industrial gas and power, to meet the demands of an increasingly competitive world.”

As markets focus on producing lighter and more versatile materials, AMETEK has responded and extended its temperature measurement solutions for aluminium, speciality steels and carbon fibre production.

2017 has already proven to be an exciting year for AMETEK as it has introduced its next generation of near infrared (NIR-B) borescopes into the glass and industrial gases markets. In those industries, AMETEK expects to see major growth in its thermal imaging technology, which will help deliver better energy management and conservation, and improve efficiencies.

AMETEK’s vision is to continue creating the next generation of leading technologies that will ensure it is the number-one choice for temperature measurement and combustion and emissions monitoring around the world.
