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: MPSD team discovers light-induced ferroelectricity in strontium titanate

Light can be used not only to measure materials’ properties, but also to change them. Especially interesting are those cases in which the function of a material can be modified, such as its ability to conduct electricity or to store information in its magnetic state. A team led by Andrea Cavalleri from the Max Planck Institute for the Structure and Dynamics of Matter in Hamburg used terahertz frequency light pulses to transform a non-ferroelectric material into a ferroelectric one.

Ferroelectricity is a state in which the constituent lattice “looks” in one specific direction, forming a macroscopic electrical polarisation. The ability to...

Im Focus: Determining the Earth’s gravity field more accurately than ever before

Researchers at TU Graz calculate the most accurate gravity field determination of the Earth using 1.16 billion satellite measurements. This yields valuable knowledge for climate research.

The Earth’s gravity fluctuates from place to place. Geodesists use this phenomenon to observe geodynamic and climatological processes. Using...

Im Focus: Tube anemone has the largest animal mitochondrial genome ever sequenced

Discovery by Brazilian and US researchers could change the classification of two species, which appear more akin to jellyfish than was thought.

The tube anemone Isarachnanthus nocturnus is only 15 cm long but has the largest mitochondrial genome of any animal sequenced to date, with 80,923 base pairs....

Im Focus: Tiny light box opens new doors into the nanoworld

Researchers at Chalmers University of Technology, Sweden, have discovered a completely new way of capturing, amplifying and linking light to matter at the nanolevel. Using a tiny box, built from stacked atomically thin material, they have succeeded in creating a type of feedback loop in which light and matter become one. The discovery, which was recently published in Nature Nanotechnology, opens up new possibilities in the world of nanophotonics.

Photonics is concerned with various means of using light. Fibre-optic communication is an example of photonics, as is the technology behind photodetectors and...

Im Focus: Cost-effective and individualized advanced electronic packaging in small batches now available

Fraunhofer IZM is joining the EUROPRACTICE IC Service platform. Together, the partners are making fan-out wafer level packaging (FOWLP) for electronic devices available and affordable even in small batches – and thus of interest to research institutes, universities, and SMEs. Costs can be significantly reduced by up to ten customers implementing individual fan-out wafer level packaging for their ICs or other components on a multi-project wafer. The target group includes any organization that does not produce in large quantities, but requires prototypes.

Research always means trying things out and daring to do new things. Research institutes, universities, and SMEs do not produce in large batches, but rather...
