Curved Needle Testing Systems

The Instron® Needle Testing System is ideally suited for needles used in abdominal, fistula, vascular, intestinal, or other surgical procedures. This system provides two different needle testing solutions: one for curved needle puncture testing and one for bend testing. The curved needle puncture testing fixture is used to evaluate needle sharpness and insertion force, while the needle bend testing fixture is used to evaluate flexural properties of the needle during use. With its tabletop design, the Curved Needle Testing System has a small footprint and takes up minimal benchtop space. The testing system operates with Instron Bluehill® 3 Software that provides test control, data acquisition,test results, and reports, as well as a large library of calculations.

Manual Wedge Action Grips 2716-00x and 2736-00x Series

The manual wedge action grip is designed for easy specimen loading, alignment, and positioning. After initial face to specimen contact, gripping force will increase as the testing load increases. Virtually no preload is seen during specimen clamping due to the design of the moving grip bodies. This makes them particularly suitable for testing high strength materials, such as metals and composites, ensuring that specimen slippage is eliminated.

AVE2 Dynamic Strain Measurement

In addition to its excellent performance for static testing, the Instron AVE 2 is now available with an option for cyclic testing and high speed monotonic test measurement. Capable of tracking displacement at up to 500mm/s with cyclic test frequencies up to 20Hz, it offers the speed and flexibility scientists and engineers have been waiting for to study the dynamic behaviour of materials without contacting the specimen.

V-Notch Shear Fixtures | ASTM D5379 & D7078

Instron® Shear Test Fixtures are designed for in-plane or interlaminar shear testing of composite materials. The V-Notched Beam Method, more commonly known as the Iosipescu Shear Method, is described in ASTM D5379, while the V-Notched Rail Shear Method is outlined in ASTM D7078. Both test methods share many common characteristics and have the distinctive V-notches in the specimen design, which serve to create a localized and approximate uniform shear stress zone between the notches. Also, a ±45° two-element strain gauge is often used to directly verify the shear strains applied.
