Instron has a wealth of experience for testing of materials and structures for a wide variety of different industries. Some examples include:
In order to produce greener and more efficient power generation systems, automotive manufacturers are employing a wide range of advanced materials such as new high-strength steels, aluminum alloys, plastics, and composites that require testing to characterize mechanical properties during all phases of their life cycles.
This industry requires a wide range of testing solutions ranging from simple static materials testing, to component fatigue testing, to full assembly crash testing.
Over the past decade, the medical devices and biomaterials industries have experienced incredible amounts of innovation and expanded regulatory involvement, leading to an increased need for physical testing to ensure the safety and efficacy in all products in development and on the market.
This industry demands high-precision testing solutions to deliver accurate results that lives depend on.
With electronics becoming more compact and complex, OEMs and their supply chains have had to miniaturize sub-level components and use high-density packaging, increasing the need for testing to characterize mechanical properties during manufacturing, normal use, abnormal use, and end-of-life recycling.
This industry requires testing solutions that have the ability to characterize a quality user experience.
When it comes to product development, understanding the mechanical properties of plastics, metals, and composites as they move from raw material → compound → semi-finished → finished product is critically important. Mechanical testing allows R&D departments make informed decisions throughout the development process.
