eXpert 5601 with sample alignment sensor
Low-friction pneumatic loading fixture with sample alignment sensors

ADMET recently delivered a customized high throughput eXpert 5601 1kN Series Horizontal Testing System to measure the strength of recycled anode and cathode materials in recycled Lithium-Ion batteries. The system accurately determines tensile strength and elongation of delicate copper foil samples, some as thin as 8 microns (0.008 mm). To prevent specimen deformation during setup, ADMET designed a low-friction sample loading fixture, eliminating manual handling and ensuring precise placement into pneumatic grips. This fixture also streamlines preparation by accommodating multiple specimens simultaneously. Additionally, the system includes a sample alignment verification feature, signaling optimal alignment with a green light indicator.

The system was designed to conform to the ASTM E345 and IPC-TM-650 test standards for testing the tensile strength of copper foil.
