Precision Specimen Loader for Thin Films and Foils

The precision specimen loader improves alignment and the setup process for testing thin films and foils, resulting in reduced variation in test results and improved safety and ergonomics. Available for our 250 N pneumatic side action tensile grips (catalog no. 2712-052), this device uses a detachable alignment clip and linear rail to guide the specimens into the grips. The precision specimen loader is available in multiple sizes to accommodate a wide range of specimen dimensions. Thin films and foils play an important role in battery applications.

Puncture Test Fixture: Testing Separator Film for Electric Vehicle Batteries

Puncture testing (EN 14477) of separator film is critical to ensure the safety and longevity of each cell throughout the life cycle of a battery. Film must be strong enough to withstand punctures from dendrites that form with extensive use. Ensuring proper specimen tautness and alignment of an upper probe are critical for this application.
