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: Worldwide Success of Tyrolean Wastewater Treatment Technology

A biological and energy-efficient process, developed and patented by the University of Innsbruck, converts nitrogen compounds in wastewater treatment facilities into harmless atmospheric nitrogen gas. This innovative technology is now being refined and marketed jointly with the United States’ DC Water and Sewer Authority (DC Water). The largest DEMON®-system in a wastewater treatment plant is currently being built in Washington, DC.

The DEMON®-system was developed and patented by the University of Innsbruck 11 years ago. Today this successful technology has been implemented in about 70...

Im Focus: Computational high-throughput screening finds hard magnets containing less rare earth elements

Permanent magnets are very important for technologies of the future like electromobility and renewable energy, and rare earth elements (REE) are necessary for their manufacture. The Fraunhofer Institute for Mechanics of Materials IWM in Freiburg, Germany, has now succeeded in identifying promising approaches and materials for new permanent magnets through use of an in-house simulation process based on high-throughput screening (HTS). The team was able to improve magnetic properties this way and at the same time replaced REE with elements that are less expensive and readily available. The results were published in the online technical journal “Scientific Reports”.

The starting point for IWM researchers Wolfgang Körner, Georg Krugel, and Christian Elsässer was a neodymium-iron-nitrogen compound based on a type of...

Im Focus: Atomic precision: technologies for the next-but-one generation of microchips

In the Beyond EUV project, the Fraunhofer Institutes for Laser Technology ILT in Aachen and for Applied Optics and Precision Engineering IOF in Jena are developing key technologies for the manufacture of a new generation of microchips using EUV radiation at a wavelength of 6.7 nm. The resulting structures are barely thicker than single atoms, and they make it possible to produce extremely integrated circuits for such items as wearables or mind-controlled prosthetic limbs.

In 1965 Gordon Moore formulated the law that came to be named after him, which states that the complexity of integrated circuits doubles every one to two...
