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.
As the global automotive industry expands production of electric vehicles, battery manufacturers are under increasing pressure to develop smaller, lighter, and more powerful batteries. Learn about the wide range of test methods and fixturing that have been developed to test the various components of lithium-ion battery cells, modules, and packs.
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.
Instron offers the world's most comprehensive range of solutions for testing composite materials and components: tension, compression, shear, torsion, planar biaxial, impact, and rheological properties to name a few. In addition to quality hardware, Instron also offers a wide range of services for verification and alignment.
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.
From reinforcement bar to tubular products, metal producers are faced with a host of testing challenges. Manufacturers of metal products must not only meet advertised strength and performance ratings, but also comply with a wide range of ASTM, ISO, EN, JIS, SAE and other international standards.
Characterization of polymers’ properties is critical in the development and manufacturing processes of materials, as well as the quality control, and ultimately, in determining the functionality of a finished product.
