Static Materials Testing Machines
Our static materials testing machines are suitable for testing applications in all areas, whether in quality control or research projects, delivering outstanding performance in challenging materials and component testing situations.
Melt Flow Indexers
Melt flow tests are a simple method of characterizing the flow properties of a plastic melted mass. This test method is widely used, especially in quality assurance and goods inwards testing. The demands placed on the extrusion plastometer vary according to which processing stage in the plastics industry is involved.
The Rockwell test measuring the depth of penetration of an indenter under a large load (major load) compared to the penetration made by a preload (minor load). There are different scales, denoted by a single letter, that use different loads or indenters. The result is a dimensionless number noted as HRA, HRB, HRC, etc., where the last letter is the respective Rockwell scale (see below). When testing metals, indentation hardness correlates linearly with tensile strength.
Built with an innovative optical system, the benchtop Spectrophotometer is a compact measurement instrument designed to evaluate the color, relative gloss, and UV characteristics of samples small to large in size. This high accuracy, versatile spectrophotometer is used to evaluate, reproduce, and help control the color and appearance of opaque, transparent, translucent, and fluorescent samples in a more effective, streamlined process. Its advanced capabilities and optical system help users meet color quality standards more efficiently, maintain consistency in each batch of material, and communicate color seamlessly internally and throughout the supply chain. This makes the ideal for color analysis, formulation, and quality control inspections within laboratory and manufacturing environments.
A The method can be used to investigate the behaviour of specimen types of specimen under the impact conditions defined and for estimating the brittleness or toughness of specimens within the limitations inherent in the test conditions. It can also be used for the determination of comparative data from similar types of material.
Izod Impact is a single point test that measures a materials resistance to impact from a swinging pendulum. Izod impact is defined as the kinetic energy needed to initiate fracture and continue the fracture until the specimen is broken. Izod specimens are notched to prevent deformation of the specimen upon impact.
