Dynamic and Fatigue
Dynamic testing systems covers ElectroPuls electrodynamic and 8800 series servohydraulic machines for performing fatigue, fracture mechanics, bi-axial, multi-axial, high strain rate and thermo-mechanical fatigue tests.
Instron’s acceleration sled systems are used for the development and approval of vehicle safety systems and vehicle parts and also for the investigation of solids and structures during crash events.
Growing demands on the comfort and reliability of vehicles require functional and life-time tests of components or complete systems to avoid hazards for humans and the environment or damage in the economic field.
Impact Drop Towers & Pendulums
Impact resistance is one of the most important properties for component designers to consider. Impact resistance is a critical measure of service life and it involves the perplexing problem of product safety and liability.
Automated Testing Systems enable a new dimension of testing productivity, improve safety, reduce variability, save time and increase throughput. Options are tailored to your testing operations and throughput requirements.
Rheometers and Melt Flow Testers
The Instron line of CEAST Rheology systems are used to measure the rheological properties of thermoplastics to characterize the polymer melt flow behavior in the process conditions.
HDT & Vicat
HDT and Vicat systems are used to characterize the behavior of plastic materials at high temperatures, measuring the heat deflection temperature (HDT) and the Vicat softening temperature (Vicat).
The Instron line of low and medium capacity torsion testers provide dependable mulit-turn capability.Available in capacities ranging from 22 - 5,650 N-m (200 - 50,000 in lb), these systems are ideal for many applications.
