Webinar: How to Expand Your Testing Capabilities With Piggybacking
For labs that test a variety of materials at a wide range of forces, finding ways to do more with your testing systems is critical. Sometimes it’s not convenient or even practical to swap out fixtures or load cells to accommodate the testing you need to do.
In this webinar, we discuss the concept of “piggybacking,” which involves using adapters to mount lower-capacity fixtures on more permanent high-capacity fixtures, and lower-capacity load cells on higher-capacity load cells to capture finer measurements. As part of this presentation, we explain how this increases the versatility of your universal testing system and can help future-proof your lab.
