Mold Builder Deploys Infrared Technology Said to Detect Infected Workers
Precise Tooling Solutions, a mold builder in Columbus, Indiana, is the first U.S. user of Viral Sign’s new screening technology, which is said to detect viral infection prior to the onset of symptoms. The system uses infrared imaging and computer algorithms to produce a thermal scan of a person’s face. According to Viral Sign Inc., the scan can identify temperature patterns consistent with pre-symptomatic influenza-like illness, including the coronavirus.
“We are proud to be the first U.S. installation of Viral Sign,” says Don Dumoulin, CEO and owner of Precise Tooling Solutions. “Our customers depend on us for on-time deliveries, and this technology helps ensure that Precise craftsmen can continue to meet the high expectations of our customers. Viral Sign will help ensure a safe workplace and help keep our employees and their families safe.”
