Why Impact Testing is Important to Automotive Manufacturing
With safety being a major priority in the automotive sector, it is vital that manufacturers have accurate information about how automotive components will perform under different conditions. Impact resistance is one of the most important properties for parts designers to consider, as well as the most difficult to quantify. Estimating the performance of a material directly benefits the production costs and improves the value of the final product.

As anyone with a smartphone is aware, software developers are constantly improving their software with periodic updates for a variety of reasons. Major phone companies release updates at least once a year, and in between the major updates, they push out smaller bug fixes and patches as flaws are inevitably found in the program, application, or operating system. This same idea applies with Bluehill® Software.

Fulfilling the requirements of industry standards and being competitive on the market are keys to success in the automotive sector. In the automotive industry, design and performance are equally important. A manufacturer of car interiors contacted Instron® to check the quality of leather used to cover airbags, including its behavior after sunlight and climate changes. Estimating the performance of a material covering airbags involves many factors around costs and benefits.

Wedge action grips are a very popular choice for gripping high-strength materials, such as metals and composites, because the strong clamping force ensures that specimen slippage is eliminated. All wedge grips work by multiplying a relatively small input force into a higher clamping force. In all wedge grips, the opening and closing of the jaw faces are achieved by the relative motion between the grip body and the jaw faces. However, there are two distinct wedge grip designs – “moving jaw face” and “moving grip body”. Their difference lies in which component is kept stationary and which is moving.
