TestBench

ElectroForce TestBench configurations were designed with component testing in mind, and thanks to their modular approach, a wide array of configurations and performance capabilities are possible. These instruments can be configured with 200N, 400N, or 3kN ElectroForce linear motors mounted on a horizontal baseplate and include multi-channel and multi-axis options.

Reaction brackets are pre-designed to allow attachment of components or the test specimen to the mounting baseplate. In addition, a saline bath can be provided as an environmental option. By selecting the proper baseplate and ElectroForce® motor packages, a variety of testing needs can be addressed.

Planar Biaxial

The ElectroForce Planar Biaxial TestBench instrument offers superior control and unparalleled performance in material and soft tissue characterization. Using this instrument, you can assess mechanical anisotropy and stress-strain relationships in samples that range from engineered devices, including wearable sensors and wound repair meshes, to tissues such as skin, pericardium, and heart valve leaflets. This instrument can be configured with either two or four ElectroForce linear motors mounted on a horizontal baseplate and load cell options for each axis of loading

ElectroForce 5500

The ElectroForce 5500 test instrument provides characterization and stimulation capabilities for a variety of synthetic materials such as composites and elastomers, biomaterials, tissue samples, and tissue-engineered constructs. It features a 200 N maximum force.

This test instrument is versatile and can meet the individualized needs of educators and researchers through a variety of fixtures and software options.

ElectroForce 3500

ElectroForce 3500 test instruments are available in three base system configurations. The 3510 instrument, rated at 7.5 kN, is configured with the linear motor installed in the upper crosshead, making it well-suited for applications requiring a temperature-controlled bath. The 3520 instrument is rated at 7.5 kN, and the linear motor is installed in the lower baseplate. The 3550 instrument is a higher-force configuration rated at 15 kN.

ElectroForce 3300

ElectroForce Series II 3300 test instruments are well-suited for a variety of tests that include ASTM and ISO standards for medical devices, materials characterization, and long-term durability tests. The ElectroForce 3300 series includes two test instruments; the ElectroForce 3310 provides 1000 N of maximum force while the ElectroForce 3330 provides 3000N. Both test instruments can perform tests that range from one cycle per day (or static tests) up to 100 Hz Select the force capacity that is appropriate for your testing needs.

ElectroForce 3200

The ElectroForce® 3200 Series III test instruments feature a 225 N (450 N optional) maximum force. With the versatility of static to 300 Hz frequency response, the table-top configuration is adaptable to a variety of biomedical research and engineered materials test applications, including torsion testing, creep under dynamic loading and special environments (hot/cold chambers).

Sample Cutter

Sample preparation for RPA, MDR, and Mooney instruments is made safe and simple with the VS volumetric sample cutter. This dual-action pneumatic system allows for the preparation of uncured rubber specimens of a user-defined volume. Preparing samples in this well-controlled fashion reduces operational variability, greatly improving overall experimental precision.

The VS comes standard with a closing pressure of 6 bar. The sample is first compressed to the user-prescribed thickness, then cut to the die diameter. The closing pressure, and sample volume are user adjustable. Two handed operation and lateral guards guarantee safe operation at all times.

TAM IV

TAM IV is the most sensitive, stable and flexible microcalorimeter system in the world for directly measuring this universal heat signal and, therefore, the quantitative thermodynamic and kinetic observation of any process. It is a unique microcalorimeter system that is completely modular and combines the highest heat flow sensitivity with unmatched long term temperature stability for measuring many processes that are undetectable by other techniques. A wide range of calorimeter configurations and sample handling systems provide maximum application flexibility and ensure optimum laboratory productivity.

DLF 1200

The Discovery Laser Flash DLF 1200 employs a custom Class 1 Nd:Glass Laser pulse source to provide a collimated, monochromatic energy pulse with a 300 μs to 400 μs pulse width. Ideal for labs that need to measure thermal diffusivity, heat capacity or thermal conductivity at temperatures up to 1200°C, or require the power of a laser in a compact benchtop instrument.

Equipped with a liquid nitrogen-cooled IR detector, DLF 1200 provides high precision, quick response, non-contact measurements in air, inert gas or vacuum to 10-3 torr. Simple to operate and safe to use, easy to maintain and very economical to operate, these systems are suitable for research and development programs, as well as quality control.
