SilverFast Ai Studio 8 & Testfire®

Logo_Testfire_100px LSI_Logo_100px Introduction
Testfire® is a revolutionary system that measures and controls the ceramic firing process becoming a useful tool which helps ceramic experts in a way never done before. Combined with SilverFast Ai Studio 8 scanner software it provides spectacular results.

What is Testfire® and how does it work?
Testfire is the ideal tool in order to control the ceramic firing process. The way it works is quite simple. Two tiles, previously purchased on the Testfire Store, are fired at different temperatures on the customer's kiln. The green patch included on those tiles will change its color when the tiles are being fired. The color changing of those color patches say a lot about the customer's kiln and firing process. Some additional information, like firing temperature and duration, will help to adjust your firing process to an optimum.

Finally the fired tiles have to be scanned and uploaded on the Testfire server, getting back the customer a completed report about the way its kiln works and how its ceramic firing process could be improved.
