With the rapid advances in digital technology in recent years mechanical testers have become less and less useful for product and quality testing.

This upgrade provides a very cost effective way to achieve a wide range of benefits for end users but it still comes up short in other categories. This updated offering includes a digital processor, load cell, digital LCD panel display and software.The drive system, clamps and sample loading all work the same way, reducing the “learning curve”. The Gage Buster automatically starts when a pre-determined load is reached so you simply load a sample, pull the lever and the load is displayed on the LCD panel while the test is logged into memory. The Gage Buster 2 is a very versatile low cost processor capable of handling a wide variety of materials, test set ups and procedures. Here are just some of the benefits: This set up is prone to many mechanical problems and requires ordering expensive chart paper to record results. Gage Safe Software benefits: The same mechanical parts are eliminated, costly chart paper is no longer necessary when graphing to a PC and time spent training is at a minimum. No additional mounting hardware is needed. And PTES is working to develop a variety of common test procedures into the set up of the Gage Buster 2. If you have always wanted the ability to save and display your test results on a PC but your company budget did not allow for it a Scott conversion may be for you. The C-Series clamps, engineered by Scott Testing Equipment decades ago and still manufactured by PTES, are a widely used clamping system in the rubber and elastomers industry. Their compact yet durable body design allows for installation on virtually any materials testing equipment, from old Scott mechanical tensile testers to the latest electronic materials testing equipment. As such, having materials testing equipment regularly verified and calibrated to ensure it is operating within the proper parameters is critical to running a successful quality program and business.

But what they offer, or more importantly don’t offer, could be exposing your business to costly mistakes, lawsuits and lost sales. With the confusing array of calibration services available from so many companies a seemingly simple decision can become very complicated. The size of the calibrating firm and the fees they charge is rarely a good indicator of the quality of the service you are receiving. Does your firm oil ball screws, check belt tension and oil levels on motors, replace mechanical parts such as bearings and washers, inspect the inside of gear boxes, check that cords aren’t able to be caught in moving parts, etc. A few examples: The machine was being calibrated annually by an outside firm. The drive screws were so dry and clogged with debris that they actually “froze” in place leading to costly repairs. Did the product certified on this machine really meet the customers specifications. A certification sticker from an outside calibration firm was on the machine and current! These services range from “standard” or “basic” services to fully accredited calibrations. Many companies “standard” service involves single point checks of a force, not a range of forces as prescribed in most procedures. Just because you’re receiving a certificate in the mail doesn’t mean your equipment is being properly verified. The technician, from an ISO accredited company, was training another technician. They put a weight on the scale, completed the calibration menu on the scale, verified the same weight, put a sticker on the machine and left, all in under 5 minutes. Was the scale within tolerances when they started. Was the scale accurate throughout the entire capacity range. Was the scale level. There are significant implications for all of these questions. The scales were accurate to about 50% of full scale but then a significant error was found. Ultimately it was determined that the shipping screws had not been removed when the scales had been purchased.

A single point check like the one completed in the prior example above would not have found this. Substantial errors in the weights of compounds being used in the manufacturing process were occurring. Is a single point check really worth less money? Some calibrating firms are strictly limited to the procedural requirements of certifying a piece of equipment. Others have decades of experience with industry procedures, materials testing equipment, fixtures and other facets of your industry. Is that worth paying more for a calibration? Absolutely. Do you pay for that service? Does your technician know the common problems and pitfalls associated with your testing? Comprehensive, regularly scheduled calibrations of your equipment ensures it operates within tolerances and is reliable for many years to come. Compromises in this area lead to increased maintenance costs, machine down time, lost sales and lost customers. If you would like a more detailed explanation of the calibration services that PTES provides or a quote for your testing equipment please contact us at today. Worn Out Rubber Jaws And one of the most common problems with this configuration: worn out rubber padding on the jaws (anvils) of the clamps. So if your quality control people start asking if the air pressure has changed in the lab, start complaining about having to do extra samples because the material is slipping, or insist there is something wrong “with the tester” the first thing to inspect should be the rubber pads on your anvils. The thickness of the jaw(anvil), including the rubber, plays a key role in how firmly a sample will be held. As rubber wears out the distance between the jaw(anvil) increases. As the rubber wears out it also becomes slippery, leading to slipping and inconsistent test results. This time varies based on the amount of testing completed but generally should never be more than a year or so. PTES has resurfaced jaws(anvils) for years and at a very competitive prices.

Our customers simply ship their jaws(anvils) to us in a box with a purchase order and in 2-3 business days their resurfaced anvils are on their way back.Worn Out Rubber Jaws Mechanical testers have largely disappeared from the tensile testing landscape. Not so fast. Many Scott test machines can easily be converted to a digital weighing system, allowing companies to stretch their quality budgets in many ways while achieving a wide range of benefits. The elimination of all the moving parts also eliminates all of the troublesome factors that affected the accuracy of readings like friction in the pawls and shaft, binding of the dial pointer spring, etc. Data can even be exported to a PC for analysis. Perhaps the biggest benefit to a Scott conversion is the capital investment required.A digital conversion eliminates all the moving mechanical parts of the weigh head. Bearings no longer need to be changed every year, pawls don’t need replacing, cracked pointers and dial faces no longer need repair, etc. Most of the common repair items performed for these testers are eliminated. This can lead to significant production cost improvements by shrinking the “margin of error” needed to manufacture a product that meets customer requirements. The Scott Testing Machine after conversion is used the exact same way it was before. The only difference is the LCD Display. In fact, there are less steps required of the operator with a converted machine. This can be a huge benefit to companies that use testers on the production floor where employees may have little or no quality training control training, companies that have a large number of employees or where established QC technicians have been using the machine “the same way” for many years. This greatly reduces the chances of an employee being injured. Heavy metal frames and gear boxes that have been in service for decades provide a solid foundation for materials properties testing.

Adding the latest digital technology to this platform ensures your Scott equipment will continue to be in use for decades to come. Click this link and tell us about your equipment and testing needs. PTES will spend Monday contacting vendors and customers to assess their status and make any needed adjustments to service and production schedules.The relocation is expected to be completed by June 30.

Technically speaking, calibration of an instrument means comparing the instrument to one that has already been calibrated to an accepted traceable standard. Internationally recognized standards have been created for calibration of strain and load rate (ASTM E2309), speed and displacement (ASTM E2658 and E2309), and measurement of dynamic force (ASTM E467), torque (ASTM E2624), tension and compression (ASTM E4). If the instrument that is being calibrated is not within a particular tolerance, it is modified to be within the specification bounds if possible. Otherwise, additional investigation may be needed to determine the cause. Universal testing machines have been used by many companies to validate the material properties of their product during the quality control stage before distribution. These validation tests performed with a system whose calibration certifications have expired may produce inaccurate results, which may eventually lead to a company distributing non-conforming products. Inaccurate test results can lead a user to inaccurate conclusions about a test specimen in research and development laboratories, distorting the proposed findings. In most environments where universal testing machines are employed, it is important that the measurement devices connected with the machine be as accurate as possible.

Hence, it is important, and for some companies necessary, to maintain a frequent and consistent calibration schedule. ADMET recommends that measurement devices integrated into a materials testing system must be calibrated annually, at a minimum, in order to ensure that the users’ materials testing system provides precise and accurate measurements. Users must review their calibration certificates annually in order to see if any devices have deviated significantly with regard to accuracy. This reduces the risk of generating invalid results. In addition, certain industries might be subject to other regulations which require more frequent calibrations. Internationally recognized standards determine the calibration procedures. For instance, ASTM E4 specifies compression and tension force calibration procedures. This verification is repeated again for a second time. The measurement device passes and the calibration is verified if the error on each run and the repeatability calculations display error 1%, the service technician will have to manually adjust values of the measurement device’s calibration so that the measurements can match the target range of the calibrated device.

The collapse of the incomplete pedestrian bridge at Florida International University in March 2018 provides an example where design errors resulted in growing cracks as described by OSHA. The first bridges were constructed out of timber, stone, and masonry. Material properties considered include durability, fatigue resistance, corrosion, material weight, service life, maintenance needs, and expense. Each material has its own advantages and must be analyzed with care, depending on the bridge size, locale, environment, loads expected, and more. As a matter of fact, FRP composites are engineered materials that have been of use in bridges after material researchers managed to strengthen the reinforced concrete through the use of other materials such as carbon, glass and aramid fiber reinforced polymers. Built into the software are analysis routines for easy usability and quick time-to-results. The servo-control motor enables tests to be run at extremely slow net deflection rates. In consequence, greater capacity eXpert 2600 models issued with MTESTQuattro software are frequently of use in running complicated testing standards like ASTM C1609. Some examples of ADMET indicators of use in concrete testing applications can be seen below. Further test report parameters frequently coveted by testing labs include the average rate of loading and the cylinder correction factor that are automatically calculated, the operator ID, specimen weight and age, submitted by the operator, and the cylinder break type and cap type. Additionally, all GaugeBuster 2 models can be outfitted with the GaugeSafe Basic, Plus, or Live software. These machines have the wide column spacing and force capacities to perform various composite testing including shear, tension, compression, and flexion. The hydraulic power supply and electronics are integral with the frame thereby conserving highly valued lab space.

Each eXpert 1900 Series tester is engineered to reach the force-stroke-frequency imperatives of each application. Dependent upon the size of the hydraulic power supply (HPU), the 1900 Series HPU is either free-standing or an integral part of the frame. ADMET provides a complete line of grips, fixtures, load cells, extensometers as well as heating and cooling for the systems. ADMET’s simple to use servohydraulic systems offer accuracy by steering clear of having to compensate for piston friction and operate with highly precise, self-identifying ADMET load cell technology. The pumping system can fit inside the machine table on the majority of models, which results in a compact design. These systems enable automatic calculation of vital parameters such as the amount of cycles to failure, the utmost load at failure, fracture toughness, dynamic modulus, and more. Features that can be customized include the separation between columns, the vertical test space, the power stroke, and the piston locale. Load cells and displacement sensors can be brought in to take measurements of axial forces and spindle displacement. Torsion testing machines are offered in horizontal or vertical orientations for static and fatigue testing applications. Recommended equipment for these materials illustrates the fact that the versatility of ADMET’s universal testing machines enables many types of materials, like concrete, composites, and metals, to be tested with one system rather than being forced to buy separate testing equipment for each new material.

MegaForce II conforms to American Society for Testing Materials specifications for concrete cylinders (ASTM C39) and cement cubes (ASTM C109), as well as cold crush (ASTM C133) and concrete beam flexural strength (ASTM C78) testing. MegaForce II can be part of a comprehensive concrete testing system when combined with ADMET’s MTESTWindows Materials Testing System and its DC16 or Gauge Buster digital indicators. With MegaForce II, tests are always in compliance, yet, because of its fast preload and dump, overall testing cycles are completed in less time.” Tim Austel, Pryor Giggey research engineer, found that ADMET understood his testing needs. “I started calling around to find a manual replacement. ADMET understood C133 tests and made the MegaForce recommendation. It’s been awesome. Before, I had to dedicate a person to the test as it was being run. Now, the operator puts in a cube, pushes a button and walks away.

He comes back, puts in another sample and does it again. Throughput is way up.” Highly skilled engineers provide customers with personalized research and development services and support to make ADMET the most responsive materials testing equipment supplier. ADMET’s loyal customer base includes leading manufacturers, testing labs, researchers and universities in aerospace, automotive, biomedical, construction, metals, plastics, textiles and other industries.

Marc Geers on September 23, 2020: Multi-scale homogenization of materials with an emergent macroscopic behaviour The collapse of the incomplete pedestrian bridge at Florida International University on March 2018 is an example where design errors led to growing cracks as described by OSHA. Early bridges were made out of timber, stone, and masonry. Modern bridges are currently built using concrete, steel, fiber reinforced polymer (FRP) composites, and a combination of materials. Material properties taken into account include durability, corrosion, fatigue resistance, weight of material, maintenance requirements, service life, and cost. Each material has its own benefits and must be analyzed carefully depending on the bridge size, location, environment, expected loads, and more. Mechanical properties of certain materials such as FRP composites can be designed by varying volume and orientation of the fiber reinforcement to allow higher strength. In fact, FRP composites are engineered materials that have been used in bridges after material researchers were able to strengthen the reinforced concrete using other materials such as glass, carbon and aramid fiber reinforced polymers. Read more here or see below for recommended solutions. Analysis routines are built in to the software for ease of use and fast time-to-results.

The servo-control motor allows running tests at very slow net deflection rates. Consequently, higher capacity eXpert 2600 models equipped with MTESTQuattro software are often used for running complex testing standards such as ASTM C1609. Depending on the indicator chosen with the system, automated compressive strength test reports are generated, saving time as well as costs required to manually generate reports while decreasing the chance of errors. Some examples of ADMET indicators used in concrete testing applications can be seen below. Additional test report parameters often desired by testing labs include the average rate of loading and the cylinder correction factor that are automatically calculated, the operator ID, specimen weight and age, entered by the operator, and the cylinder break type and cap type. In addition, all GaugeBuster 2 models can be equipped with the GaugeSafe Basic, Plus, or Live software. ADMET offers a range of equipment for concrete testing, including indicators to be used with existing manually-controlled systems, controllers to retrofit servo-control machines, the MegaForce Concrete Testing system specifically made for concrete testing, as well as servo-control machines that allow a variety of concrete testing to be conducted on a single system.
