CHICAGO (Aug. 7, 5:50 p.m. EDT) — Test equipment provider Instron Corp. of Norwood, Mass., introduced at NPE its Standard Video Extensometer.
The 3300 Series SVE can test plastics, elastomers and other materials. An optional noncontacting SVE applies neither weight nor operating force on the specimen.
The SVE is controlled through setup windows integrated with Instron's Bluehill 2 software and runs on a single computer system. A user can mount the SVE on a variety of Instron testing machines and environment chambers.
Instrom also released at the Chicago show a versatile, newly reconfigured POE2000 pendulum for impact testing of plastics, composites and ceramics. The instrument now comes standard and fully integrated with the Impulse data acquisition and analysis system. A fully configured, low-energy-consuming POE2000 system starts at $26,200.
