New Magneto-Rheology Accessory from TA Instruments

New Castle, Delaware, USA. September 24, 2015 – TA Instruments introduces an all new system for characterization of magneto-rheological (MR) fluids. The Magneto-Rheology Accessory for the Discovery Hybrid Rheometer enables parallel plate and cone-plate rheological measurements under the influence of a controlled field at temperatures as high as 170 °C and fields as high as…

Dental Wear

The TA ElectroForce® 3300 dental wear simulator is well-suited for characterizing the effectiveness of restorative dental materials including enamal replacements or sealants . The wear simulator can effectively run hundreds of thousands of cycles for the evaluation of two-body wear investigations.

Multi-Specimen Fatigue

To reduce time and costs for developing fatigue life (s/n) curves for NiTi, CoCr, and SS stent materials and structures, TA ElectroForce has configured multi-specimen test systems utilizing the versatility of the ElectroForce® 3200 and 3330 test instruments. Both systems include the enhanced measurement capability of the TA ElectroForce High Accuracy Displacement Sensor. This enables an even wider range of testing by improving low-amplitude displacement measurements, all through a single, easy-to-use displacement channel. The sensor is calibrated to the highest accuracy class, Class A, of ASTM E-2309

Stent/Graft Testers (SGT)

The NEW DuraPulse™ Stent/Graft test (SGT) instrument extends the performance and reliability that ElectroForce SGTs have become known for over the past 20 years. Still utilizing proprietary high-bandwidth, low-distortion ElectroForce actuator technology to provide best-in-class performance, the DuraPulse SGT incorporates a modular manifold design that allows the user to easily change out manifold and tube sets to optimize sample throughput for various stented device sizes. An enhanced software user interface is easier to use and includes inner diameter (ID) and outer diameter (OD) radial strain calculations, improved strain control modes, and simplified data acquisition.

Heart Valve Durability

Using proprietary ElectroForce controls and linear motor technology, the DuraPulse™ Heart Valve Test (HVT) instrument achieves smooth waveform fidelity and precise control for accelerated heart valve durability testing. Automatic feedback control and independent test chambers ensure that established test conditions are maintained throughout the test. The DuraPulse HVT instrument provides testing to the ISO 5840 standard for heart valve durability assessment.
