    Investigation of solidification of thin walled ductile cast iron can be improved using temperature measurement. This article includes some background of the precautions that have to be taken when measuring temperatures in thin walled castings. The aim is to minimize influence of temperature measurement on castings and to get sufficient response time of thermocouples. Investigation of thin wall ductile iron has been performed with temperature measurement in plates with thickness between 2,8 and 8mm. The cooling curves achieved are combined with examination of the microstructure in order to reveal differences in the solidification morphology between thicker and thinner plates
