Component Test Plate Video

Product Spotlight: Component Test Plate

In this video Instron Applications Engineer, Sammi Sadler, discusses a variety of ways the component test plate can be used to increase the versatility of your single and dual column universal testing systems. The component test plate is a drilled and tapped metal plate that gets mounted to the base of the testing frame. The entire surface is covered by an array of M6 threaded holes that make it ideal for performing tensile, compression, flexure, peel, and puncture testing on components and end products. It's also commonly used to mount standard and custom grips and fixtures off-center.

Non-Contacting Strain Measurement Techniques in Fatigue Testing of Polymer Matrix Composites

This article presents a short investigation of the benefits of non-contact strain measurement for monitoring and control of fatigue tests on composites. Recent developments in measurement technology offer the means to effectively measure both axial and transverse strain, instantly, throughout cyclic and highly dynamic tests. Several test scenarios are examined which demonstrate potential benefits of current state-of-the-art video extensometry, for strain controlled fatigue tests on thermoplastic composites.

Importance of Medical Packaging Standards

"The integrity of medical packaging is often evaluated with equal attention and rigor as the medical device itself, and should not be considered secondary to the device when it comes to qualification testing. Ultimately, the packaging is a vessel for the drug, device, or product and needs to contain and protect what is inside."

An Introduction to Digital Image Correlation

The benefits of Digital Image Correlation (DIC) include measuring strain without requiring physical contact, viewing full-field data (like thousands of tiny extensometers), and not needing to know where to place the strain gauge/extensometer before a test starts. The following presentation gives an introduction to this optical technique.
