Instron at Fakuma 2012: Measurement and Testing Systems for Research, Development and Quality Assurance

28.08.2012
At Fakuma 2012, held from 16 to 20 October 2012 in Friedrichshafen, Germany, Instron will once again underscore its position as a competent partner in all areas of plastics testing at its stand no. 3101 in Hall B3.
Testing systems being showcased range from systems for the measurement of flow properties, through impact testers, to solutions for static and dynamic measurement of the properties of materials and components.

Innovative products at the exhibition include new, optional accessories for melt flow testers, which significantly enhance the convenience of the testing procedure. Further highlights at the show are a high-precision, instrumented pendulum impact tester, on which Instron will demonstrate Charpy notched bar impact tests, and an electromechanical test machine optimised for low forces, which will be running 3-point bending tests to ISO 178.

The new manual weight selection system available for Instron® CEAST Melt Flow Testers is designed for single-weight measurements in accordance with ISO 1133 Methods A and B and ASTM D1238. It bridges the gap between completely manual handling of weights, and the fully automatic weight selection system present on CEAST MMF Multiweight Melt Index Testers, and is suitable for attachment to modular systems equipped wit a motorized weight lifting system and encoder.

Basic elements are a weight support for a complete set of test weights from 0.325 kg to 21.6 kg and an easy-to-use mechanical system for preselecting the required test weight. All weights remain on the machine at all times. The new weight selection system has to be ordered together with the basic unit and is compatible with other options such as a load cell for material compacting, an extrudate cutting device, a die plug device, etc.

Instron's CEAST 9050 universal pendulum impact tester showcased at Fakuma is designed for instrumented and non-instrumented impact testing. It consists of a high-stiffness, mono¬lithic, cast-iron frame structure, which helps to minimize measuring errors and accommodates all attachments. The impact tester will be shown in conjunction with the recently introduced DAS 64K data acquisition system, which provides 4 measurement channels and a storage capacity of 64.000 data points for high-resolution analysis of transient loading processes.

3-point bending tests will be demonstrated on an electromechanical tensile tester type Instron® 5942. This machine is part of the Series 5940 family of single-colum table-top testers, which due to their extremely small footprint require only a minimum of space in the test laboratory. Its stiff mechanical design ensures optimum repeatability of test conditions and reliable test result. With a nominal force capacity of 0.5 kN and 726 mm vertical daylight, the model 5942 shown at Instron's stand is the smallest model in the series. Like the larger models in the series – the 5943 (1 kN, 1123 mm) and the 5944 (2 kN, 1123 mm) – it provides superior measuring accuracy in the lower force range. Consequently, typical applications include testing of biomaterials, textiles, elastomers, small components, plastic fibers and foils. The machine on show will be equipped with grips type 2810-400 for bend testing up to a maximum test force of 5 kN.

Im Focus: Strathclyde-led research develops world's highest gain high-power laser amplifier

The world's highest gain high power laser amplifier - by many orders of magnitude - has been developed in research led at the University of Strathclyde.

The researchers demonstrated the feasibility of using plasma to amplify short laser pulses of picojoule-level energy up to 100 millijoules, which is a 'gain'...

Im Focus: Can the immune system be boosted against Staphylococcus aureus by delivery of messenger RNA?

Staphylococcus aureus is a feared pathogen (MRSA, multi-resistant S. aureus) due to frequent resistances against many antibiotics, especially in hospital infections. Researchers at the Paul-Ehrlich-Institut have identified immunological processes that prevent a successful immune response directed against the pathogenic agent. The delivery of bacterial proteins with RNA adjuvant or messenger RNA (mRNA) into immune cells allows the re-direction of the immune response towards an active defense against S. aureus. This could be of significant importance for the development of an effective vaccine. PLOS Pathogens has published these research results online on 25 May 2017.

Staphylococcus aureus (S. aureus) is a bacterium that colonizes by far more than half of the skin and the mucosa of adults, usually without causing infections....

Im Focus: A quantum walk of photons

Physicists from the University of Würzburg are capable of generating identical looking single light particles at the push of a button. Two new studies now demonstrate the potential this method holds.

The quantum computer has fuelled the imagination of scientists for decades: It is based on fundamentally different phenomena than a conventional computer....

Im Focus: Turmoil in sluggish electrons’ existence

An international team of physicists has monitored the scattering behaviour of electrons in a non-conducting material in real-time. Their insights could be beneficial for radiotherapy.

We can refer to electrons in non-conducting materials as ‘sluggish’. Typically, they remain fixed in a location, deep inside an atomic composite. It is hence...

Im Focus: Wafer-thin Magnetic Materials Developed for Future Quantum Technologies

Two-dimensional magnetic structures are regarded as a promising material for new types of data storage, since the magnetic properties of individual molecular building blocks can be investigated and modified. For the first time, researchers have now produced a wafer-thin ferrimagnet, in which molecules with different magnetic centers arrange themselves on a gold surface to form a checkerboard pattern. Scientists at the Swiss Nanoscience Institute at the University of Basel and the Paul Scherrer Institute published their findings in the journal Nature Communications.

Ferrimagnets are composed of two centers which are magnetized at different strengths and point in opposing directions. Two-dimensional, quasi-flat ferrimagnets...
