Summary

An automatic technique was developed to observe and record the bending of pyrometric cones in a kiln. The computerized data improve angular resolution, precision, and accuracy. The probable angular error for the system is 0.27° with a linear resolution of 0.33 mm. Details of the technique, typical examples of numerical and graphical data, and possible applications to cone standardization. quality control, and research are presented.
