Blog

Willkommen zu unserem neuen Instron Community Blog auf der Instron-Website. Hier finden Sie das gesammelte Wissen der besten, klügsten und talentiertesten Köpfe, die Instron zu bieten hat. Die Welt der Materialprüfung ist so groß und umfasst eine solche Vielzahl von Branchen, dass eine einzige Person niemals über das gesamte Wissen verfügen kann, um als ""der"" absolute Experte in der Materialprüftechnik zu gelten. Es bedarf einer kleinen Armee hinter den Kulissen, bestehend aus Menschen, die zusammenarbeiten, ihr Knowhow und ihre Erfahrungen und Ideen austauschen, um Ihnen, unseren Lesern, die präzisesten, relevantesten und aktuellsten Informationen zur Verfügung zu stellen.

Wir freuen uns, wenn Sie uns mitteilen wer Sie sind und über Ihre Tätigkeit und Ihre Erfahrungen berichten. Werden Sie Teil der Instron-Community!

Own Your Data and Results: Export Files, Import to LIMS

Accurate and repeatable test results are the most important product of a mechanical test. Properly managing these test results can be more challenging than conducting the test itself. Although there are several common data management and results reporting practices throughout the testing industry, most labs take approaches that are unique to them. In order to make it easier for all labs to take control of their test results and data, we have introduced several new exporting features with the release of Bluehill® Universal.

How Important is Calibrating Materials Testing Systems?

There are many different reasons why you should calibrate your testing system. Primarily, calibration is performed to ensure that your testing system is operating within its requirements. Whether these requirements are established by law, government regulation, industry regulation, or your own company quality system, organizations have recognized the importance of calibrating systems at regular intervals.

4-Point Bend Testing of Carbon Fiber

Carbon fiber is an extremely strong material. Depending on the manufacturing process, this textile can have typical modulus values of about 138 Gpa and ultimate tensile strengths of about 3.5 Gpa. Industry professionals can find themselves seeking to replace traditional steel components with lighter carbon fiber counterparts to achieve a much higher stiffness to weight ratio. To determine the appropriate thickness for the corresponding carbon component, one must undergo some experimental validation.

Charpy Impact Testing: Minimizing Hammer Changes

A common misconception within metals Charpy testing is that the specimen being tested must have an impact energy between 10% and 80% of the hammer capacity to be a standard compliant test. This is not true for metals tested to current common international standards such as ISO 148 and ASTM E23. This misconception sometimes comes from confusion with plastics standards (see ISO 179-1), other older metals standards (see GOST 9454-78), and historical use of a low resolution dial indicator on metals pendulum systems. Due to these misunderstandings, labs often have multiple systems or hammers for testing a range of specimen energies.
