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!

Evaluating the Quality of High Performance Plastics Molding

When chemical companies invest in developing high-performance polymers—such as filled polyesters, PA, PC, LCP, and PEEK—to engineer automotive and electronic components, they could potentially experience issues with a high melting temperature during the injection molding phase. It’s crucial to understand that even if the mold filling has been successfully executed, the molded parts can still show significant failures, such as cracks or warps and aesthetic defects.

Is Design Validation Slowing Down Your Time To Market?

Instron interacts with many new product development labs that have a need to validate their new product or component design. Often part of this design validation requires mechanical testing. We have noticed a common need in these research and development labs to perform rapid "what if" analysis during design validation.

Challenges with Steel

The continual drive for improved safety and increased fuel efficiency within the automotive industry hasn't escaped anyone; the message is repeatedly broadcast via news outlets and advertised by auto manufactures themselves. The majority of new car models compete fiercely for the most impressive fuel efficiency (mpg or L/100km) figures in class. As auto manufactures strive for improved fuel economy, it is clear that material selection will continue to be an important factor in weight reduction.
