Leading-edge Technologies for Materials and Components Testing Consolidated under one Roof

16.02.2012
Instron, NSI, Tiede, Wilson and Buehler – Illinois Tool Works subsidiaries join forces at Control 2012
For the first time ever, five members of Illinois Tool Works' (ITW) Test and Measurement Group will be combining forces at Control 2012, jointly presenting their offering under one roof. At the Stand 1522 in Hall 1, professional visitors will find a host of valuable information for testing a wide spectrum of materials and components, from hard to soft and from ductile to brittle.

The companies will be presenting their product portfolio and newly developed products for static and dynamic tensile, compression and torsion testing (Instron), non-destructive X-ray testing and computed tomography (North Star Imaging, NSI), crack detection (ITW Tiede), hardness testing (Wilson Hardness), and specimen preparation (Buehler).

Instron Germany, Pfungstadt/Germany (www.instron.de), will focus its presentation on its cost-saving EXTEND™ Retrofit Packages for upgrading proven, legacy Instron testing systems. Even in the case of testing systems for which conventional service is no longer available, these Retrofit Packages may enable customers to safeguard their original investment in the basic components of their testing system. The retrofit packages are based on Instron's current products. Upgrades may relate either to the electronic control systems or the testing software.

NSI, Rogers, Minnesota/USA (www.4nsi.com), will make its European debut as a globally leading provider of X-ray systems and industrial Computed Tomography (CT) systems, both standard and application-specific, for the 3D monitoring of the interior structures of components made from a wide range of materials. At Control 2012, NSI will present an extension to its existing range of test systems for medium- to-large sized objects: The newly-developed X-View X25 is a high-resolution CT which requires only limited space in the test lab and is primarily dedicated to check the quality of small parts with submicron resolution for markets such as electronics, research, and medical device.
ITW Tiede Non-destructive-testing, Essingen/Germany (www.tiede.de), is a global manufacturer and supplier of systems and accessories for surface crack detection on magnetizable and non-magnetizable components using the magnetic particle and penetration test methods. A new product in the area of magnetic particle testing, which will be launched at Control 2012, is the company's compact and therefore extremely versatile ISOTEST 30 E high-current power pack for magne¬tization of test specimens with alternating or full-wave direct current. The system is rated for test currents up to 3000 A DC and complements the company's range of high-power mobile ISOTEST 60 E and 100 E power packs at the lower end of the scale.

Wilson Hardness, Esslingen/Germany (www.wilson-hardness.com), is one of the internationally leading manufacturers of systems for hardness testing to Rockwell, Knoop / Vickers and Brinell. The brand “Wilson Hardness” combines three renowned manufacturers – Reicherter, Wolpert and Wilson – each one representing a long tradition in manufacturing hardness testers. A highlight at Control 2012 will be the company's complex, yet easy to use automation systems for hardness measurement, which help users save time and money. A main point of interest will be the company's new, user-friendly and intuitive software to support increasingly complex testing challenges in production and test laboratories.

Buehler, Düsseldorf/Germany (www.buehler-met.de), a leading manufacturer for materials preparation and analysis equipment, will place its automated grinding and polishing systems Series EcoMet/AutoMet at the focus of its presentation at Control 2012. These powerful, stable and sturdy devices are conceived for applications involving high specimen throughput. The programmable 'Pro' model variants enable presetting of the required amount of material to be removed. An optional Burst System ensures flexible and cost-efficient metering of polishing suspensions and lubricants.

Illinois Tool Works, Glenview, Illinois/USA (www.itw.com), is a highly diversified and de-centrally organized industrial company with a staff of around 60,000 that operates 825 businesses located in 52 countries spanning the globe, and provides a wide spectrum of products for the international market. The major activities of the company are concentrated in the areas of Transport, Industrial Packaging, Power Systems & Electronics, Food Equipment, Construction Products, Polymers and Fluids, and Decorative Surfaces. A further group of businesses, including the materials testing systems and software manufacturers present at Control 2012, rounds off ITW's activities.

Im Focus: Making lightweight construction suitable for series production

More and more automobile companies are focusing on body parts made of carbon fiber reinforced plastics (CFRP). However, manufacturing and repair costs must be further reduced in order to make CFRP more economical in use. Together with the Volkswagen AG and five other partners in the project HolQueSt 3D, the Laser Zentrum Hannover e.V. (LZH) has developed laser processes for the automatic trimming, drilling and repair of three-dimensional components.

Automated manufacturing processes are the basis for ultimately establishing the series production of CFRP components. In the project HolQueSt 3D, the LZH has...

Im Focus: Wonder material? Novel nanotube structure strengthens thin films for flexible electronics

Reflecting the structure of composites found in nature and the ancient world, researchers at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign have synthesized thin carbon nanotube (CNT) textiles that exhibit both high electrical conductivity and a level of toughness that is about fifty times higher than copper films, currently used in electronics.

"The structural robustness of thin metal films has significant importance for the reliable operation of smart skin and flexible electronics including...

Im Focus: Deep inside Galaxy M87

The nearby, giant radio galaxy M87 hosts a supermassive black hole (BH) and is well-known for its bright jet dominating the spectrum over ten orders of magnitude in frequency. Due to its proximity, jet prominence, and the large black hole mass, M87 is the best laboratory for investigating the formation, acceleration, and collimation of relativistic jets. A research team led by Silke Britzen from the Max Planck Institute for Radio Astronomy in Bonn, Germany, has found strong indication for turbulent processes connecting the accretion disk and the jet of that galaxy providing insights into the longstanding problem of the origin of astrophysical jets.

Supermassive black holes form some of the most enigmatic phenomena in astrophysics. Their enormous energy output is supposed to be generated by the...

Im Focus: A Quantum Low Pass for Photons

Physicists in Garching observe novel quantum effect that limits the number of emitted photons.

The probability to find a certain number of photons inside a laser pulse usually corresponds to a classical distribution of independent events, the so-called...

Im Focus: Microprocessors based on a layer of just three atoms

Microprocessors based on atomically thin materials hold the promise of the evolution of traditional processors as well as new applications in the field of flexible electronics. Now, a TU Wien research team led by Thomas Müller has made a breakthrough in this field as part of an ongoing research project.

Two-dimensional materials, or 2D materials for short, are extremely versatile, although – or often more precisely because – they are made up of just one or a...
