Essentials of Grip & Fixture Selection 10/04/2021

Essentials of Grip & Fixture Selection

Register for our webinar: Essentials of Grip & Fixture Selection Part 1.

When: Tuesday, October 5, 2021 - 1PM - 2PM (Eastern)
Cost: Free to attend (Registration required)
Where: Virtual - GoToWebinar

The accuracy of the instrument itself, though important, is only one piece of the measurement accuracy puzzle. Grip and fixture selection plays a critical role in the applications in Force and Materials quality testing. The critical elements of repeatability and consistency are bolstered by grips and fixtures that ensure:

That the sample does not slip.
The sample does not move, wiggle, shake or wobble during the test.
That all operators fixture the sample the exact same way.

Testing Rubber Dumbbells to ISO 37 and ASTM D412 09/30/2021

Testing Rubber Dumbbells to ISO 37 and ASTM D412

Testing Rubber Dumbbells to ISO 37 and ASTM D412 Video.

ISO 37 specifies a method for the determination of the tensile stress-strain properties of vulcanized and thermoplastic rubbers.

The properties which can be determined are tensile strength, elongation at break, stress at a given elongation, elongation at a given stress, stress at yield and elongation at yield.

Here, a tensile tester fitted with a long-travel extensometer and running VectorPro MT Materials Testing software performs an elongation to break test, and returns the calculations indicated by the standards.

Texture Testing: Meat & Plant-based Proteins 09/23/2021

Register for our webinar: Texture Testing: Meat & Plant-based Proteins.

When: Tuesday, September 28, 2021 - 1PM - 2PM (Eastern)
Cost: Free to attend (Registration required)
Where: Virtual - GoToWebinar

The quality of meat is determined by a number of factors including, tenderness, juiciness, and flavor. These factors are important attributes for meat texture and palatability, so much that any variations will influence a consumer’s decision to repurchase, and the same is true for alternative and plant-based protein sources.

The primary goal when measuring texture is to capture an objective value to something that is typically evaluated very subjectively. Texture cannot be controlled unless it is measured in a consistent and repeatable manner. This is applicable in anything from maintaining constant quality, to understanding shelf life, and even in how new formulations affect the finished good.

This webinar will focus on the measurement of the torque resistance in k***s, switches, and torsion springs, which are among several components in automobiles that require testing to ensure quality, performance, and safety. As well as common torque applications in the Automotive Industry and test methods. The scope of this webinar is not about the torque of the automotive engine.

Testing these components essentially involves measuring how they react under torque. For instance, how far do you need to turn a k**b to activate a command or feature in order to perform a given function? Or how much torque can be applied to a torsion spring before it starts to fail?

Across many households and industries, consumers have developed a strong preference for and confidence in ‘Duct Tape’ for all types of uses and applications. This is mainly due to the adhesion strength.

This webinar with live testing will focus on 180 Degree Peel testing, which is one of the most common approaches to measuring the adhesion or bonding strength of adhesives. Labels, Pressure Sensitive Tapes and other adhesive-backed materials are usually tested using this method in accordance with ASTM-D3330 to ensure they meet production and quality standards. This type of testing can be found in industries like packaging, medical, automotive, leather and upholstery, food and beverage and many more.

If you have ever struggled to open a bottle of water or jam or required help loosening the lug nuts on your car’s wheels?

In spite of the prevalence of the products, tools and equipment used in almost every aspect of daily life, few understand why it is critical for manufacturers to incorporate torque testing in their processes. From factory floor to consumer, standards need to be set to ensure quality. What builds consumer loyalty for one manufacturer, may be the loss of revenue for another due to something as simple as a ‘friendly’ torque value.

Hypodermic needles are tested to determine how their design influences the ease of insertion into the skin in order to prevent patient pain and skin trauma. They are also tested to determine the force required for the needle to pass through the elastomeric closure in accordance with ISO 8362-7.

The ‘hardness’ of elastomers is also measured to ensure smooth needle pe*******on without ‘blunting’ the needle.

Materials testing is often the last step in the manufacturing process. Yet, quality is the result of both the process and the material. If the material that goes into the product is inadequate or defective, then the product may be deficient or faulty. Quality cannot be put in after the fact. From R&D to product development and throughout the assembly process, understanding the materials’ properties can help to better predict the manufacturing outcome.
