The auto-trim accessory for the DHR simplifies polymer melt rheology by automating the sample heating and trimming process. Instead of opening the furnace to manually trim samples during tests, users can simply attach the accessory, load their sample, and hit start to run the experiment to completion. TA’s proprietary technology automatically conditions the sample, adjusts the gap, and trims the sample at the appropriate time during the test without any operator intervention. As a result, operator walk-away time is increased by 80%, new user training is reduced from 2 weeks down to 30 minutes, and adverse operator influence on the results is greatly reduced. By saving valuable operator time without sacrificing data consistency, the auto-trim accessory provides return on investment in less than 2 years. The auto-trim accessory empowers your lab to run more tests with confidence, accelerating product development and time to market.
