Wedge grips apply a self-loading clamping mechanism that allows holding samples at high forces. They are often used to test metal and composite specimens and other materials exhibiting high breaking strengths. Wedge grips [...]
Suture tensile testing provides researchers some of the key parameters when determining where the suture can be used and for how long it is intended to remain. Once in production, this type of mechanical testing [...]
At ADMET, we have over 25 years of experience helping companies in a diverse set of industries solve their materials testing problems. Our Engineering and Sales teams work together to provide solutions for a variety [...]
This post will help guide you through pinching (pincer) grip setup and operation on your universal testing machine. Pinching grips are low capacity tensile grips used to grip small size samples. Pinching grips may be [...]
Material testing is the measurement of the characteristics and behavior of specimens under various conditions. Material testing applications vary and there are also a variety of material testing systems and equipment. This blog post covers [...]
Rotating Beam Fatigue testing applies bending stress to a round specimen in constant rotation and allows researchers and product designers to perform fatigue testing at higher frequencies while saving capital expenses.
University of Connecticut utilizes ADMET eXpert 1655 servohydraulic testing machine for their mechanical testing needs. In the video below, Adam Wentworth talks about hydraulic wedge grips and gives tips on the grip operation.
ASTM C1609 is a test method that evaluates the flexural performance of fiber-reinforced concrete. This video guides you through running ASTM C1609 on an eXpert 2655 electromechanical testing machine equipped with MTESTQuattro and a three point bend fixture.
This blog post covers the description and determination of Young’s modulus, tangent modulus, and chord modulus. These properties, commonly used for product and material specification, can be calculated by subjecting a specimen to uniaxial [...]
