Testing Lab Case Study
Based in Des Plaines, IL, the Gas Technology Institute (GTI) is a leading research, development and training organization serving energy markets by developing technology-based solutions for consumers, industry, and government. The lab used a fifteen year-old, 60,000 lb. Tinius Olsen tensile testing frame. While the mechanics of the frame were working well, the non-computerized system that had been retrofitted to the machine to control the tests and report results was unnecessarily complicated to the point of being impractical. GTI turned to ADMET to bring their machine up to speed. GTI chose ADMET’s MTESTQuattro materials testing system to solve their challenges. The MTESTQuattro system was determined to be cost-effective and efficient to use. Unlike other test systems, MTESTQuattro came with all of the core tests included. An ADMET engineer came to GTI’s facility to demonstrate MTESTQuattro capabilities, install the system, and train GTI’s technicians. The ADMET platform allowed GTI technicians to set up more complex tests and increased the lab’s throughput on routine tests, allowing them to test more pieces in a shorter length of time.
