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: Data use draining your battery? Tiny device to speed up memory while also saving power

The more objects we make "smart," from watches to entire buildings, the greater the need for these devices to store and retrieve massive amounts of data quickly without consuming too much power.

Millions of new memory cells could be part of a computer chip and provide that speed and energy savings, thanks to the discovery of a previously unobserved...

Im Focus: An energy-efficient way to stay warm: Sew high-tech heating patches to your clothes

Personal patches could reduce energy waste in buildings, Rutgers-led study says

What if, instead of turning up the thermostat, you could warm up with high-tech, flexible patches sewn into your clothes - while significantly reducing your...

Im Focus: Lethal combination: Drug cocktail turns off the juice to cancer cells

A widely used diabetes medication combined with an antihypertensive drug specifically inhibits tumor growth – this was discovered by researchers from the University of Basel’s Biozentrum two years ago. In a follow-up study, recently published in “Cell Reports”, the scientists report that this drug cocktail induces cancer cell death by switching off their energy supply.

The widely used anti-diabetes drug metformin not only reduces blood sugar but also has an anti-cancer effect. However, the metformin dose commonly used in the...

Im Focus: New Foldable Drone Flies through Narrow Holes in Rescue Missions

A research team from the University of Zurich has developed a new drone that can retract its propeller arms in flight and make itself small to fit through narrow gaps and holes. This is particularly useful when searching for victims of natural disasters.

Inspecting a damaged building after an earthquake or during a fire is exactly the kind of job that human rescuers would like drones to do for them. A flying...

Im Focus: Topological material switched off and on for the first time

Key advance for future topological transistors

Over the last decade, there has been much excitement about the discovery, recognised by the Nobel Prize in Physics only two years ago, that there are two types...
