SI Instruments can now provide a cost-effective technique for evaluating the quality of manufactured products, materials and components by measuring their ability to sustain applied tensile or compressive loads.
Mecmesin has recently announced the introduction of a new generation of software for tension and compression testing.
Emperor software controls Mecmesin's new range of Imperial-class test stands, the Imperial 1000 and Imperial 2500, with capacities of 1000 and 2500 Newton respectively.
The software has been specifically designed for use in quality control laboratories where the mechanical properties of manufactured products need to be assessed on a routine basis - either by manufacturers or specifiers of the product.
There are two modules within Emperor. The gauge emulator is a virtual instrument console that enables specimens to be tested at fixed speed. The maximum tensile and compressive loads sustained can be displayed, and a simple test report can be printed.
The programmed testing module enables sophisticated control and analysis procedures to be developed via Emperor's user-friendly Windows interface.
Test data can be graphically interrogated, replayed, assessed against pass/fail criteria, compiled into batch reports, and exported to other software.
