AMETEK Land has appointed Manfred Hayk as the company’s new Global Infrared (IR) product manager.
Hayk has over 15 years’ experience in infrared temperature measurement and more than 20 years in optical metrologies, including laser technologies and further high-end metrologies. Prior to his new role, he was the company’s sales channel manager for Europe, the Middle East, Africa and Russia.
Hayk will lead AMETEK Land’s Global IR product team, which focuses on developing intelligent infrared technologies for superior application solutions to serve AMETEK Land’s new and existing markets.
He will also develop new ways to help customers control and improve their processes. In addition, he will develop an outstanding family of new intelligent thermal imaging solutions for different industrial applications.
Hayk seeks to develop AMETEK Land’s core markets of steel, metals, glass, HPI and power while also exploring opportunities in several new markets, including heat treatment, electro mobility, high strength steel, aluminium, new intelligent materials, semi-conductors, solar, batteries and power transportation.
“We are really pleased to promote Manfred to his new role as Global IR Product Manager,” said Justin Smith, managing director at AMETEK Land. “He has a proven track record of developing business opportunities within the infrared temperature measurement sector. This is a very exciting time for our business as we are developing innovative new technologies and instruments that are compatible with Industry 4.0.

Before joining AMETEK Land, Hayk was a sales engineer for Land’s sister company, AMETEK Taylor Hobson. He spent the earlier stages of his career in sales and engineering roles for several German-based infrared temperature measurement and thermal imaging camera companies. He’s gained expertise in many different industries throughout his time in the industry, including steel, metals, glass, heavy industry and the semi-conductor markets.
“There are many opportunities for developing our existing product range and systems into the digital world in terms of Industry 4.0,” Hayk said. “I will be focusing on expanding our existing markets and identifying where AMETEK Land’s temperature measurement equipment can improve and control companies’ processes, increasing efficiency, quality and safety.”
