Instron® 68FM Universal Testing Systems: Advanced Performance for High-Force Testing

Instron’s 6800 Series high-force testing systems are built to handle the most demanding testing applications. These systems are built with durable work surfaces, fortified against shock and vibration, and designed to reduce ingress from composite shards, rebar scale, and other debris — ensuring performance in some of the most demanding laboratory environments. Internal electrical and mechanical hardware have been isolated from the test area, while an abrasion-resistant coating is applied to the 12mm metal work surface for increased durability. Instron’s 6800 Series high-force testing systems are built to perform and built to last.

Instron® | ElectroPuls® Automated XY Stage

The Instron® Automated XY Stage for the ElectroPuls test instrument is designed for repetitive and multilocation durability testing. It can easily be adapted to suit many different testing scenarios with many different specimens, devices, and components, including electronic devices, touch sensitive panels, keyboards, performance footwear, and clothing.

CT6 Cobot Configured for Syringe Testing

Instron’s CT6 can be configured as an automated solution for the required testing of syringes. Break loose and glide force testing constitutes the bulk of syringe testing and is used to determine the real-world forces required to operate the syringe. Cobots can be placed separately or in-lined to improve throughput and efficiency in both of these applications.

Force and Strain | What You Need To Know Webinar

In this webinar, we cover tips and best practices around strain and force transducers for universal testing machines. Our discussion includes a look at settings in Bluehill® Universal software as well as an overview of relevant hardware properties. We review a range of topics, including differences between various displacement measurements and how they’re treated in Bluehill, what a composite strain measurement is, how to set up a transverse strain extensometer, the importance of pretest limits, accuracy ranges for load cells and extensometers, when to change data acquisition rates, and more.

Instron® | CT6 Cobot With Universal Testing System

Instron’s CT6 offers the benefits of automation without the additional complexity of a fully automated testing system.

CT6 Cobot Configured for Torsion Testing

Instron's® CT6 automation platform can be integrated onto torsion-capable systems, increasing the range of applications. In the pharmaceutical industry, many container closures utilize threaded connections for preventing accidental separation. This system is evaluating the unscrewing torque for luer tip caps, defined by ISO 11040-4 Annex G.5. Introducing automation removes operator influence from misalignment and reduces the burden for the operator to load and unload the entire sample, allowing them to dedicate their time to more important tasks.

CT6 Cobot Configured for Auto-Injector Testing

Instron’s® CT6 can be configured as an automated solution for the required testing of auto-injection devices — providing the benefits of automation without the additional complexity of a fully automated testing system. Designed to accommodate auto-injectors with varying geometries, this system allows you to measure a variety of critical data points including cap removal, activation force, injection time, injection mass/volume, and lock out force of the needle shield — all within a single test method.

TrendTracker for Bluehill Central Software

The TrendTracker module in Bluehill Central accelerates the data analysis workflow of your lab. An intuitive interface allows you to quickly search, display, and analyze results over time and across multiple samples and test systems. Say goodbye to tedious file searching and copy-pasting of data.

Introduction to Instron® Universal Testing Machines

Instron universal testing machines are designed to perform tensile, compression, flex, peel, puncture, friction, and shear tests — and more. This video provides a basic introduction to using an Instron universal testing machine. You will learn the basic parts of the testing system, how to power on the machine, and the primary safety features of the equipment.
