Biomedical manufacturers need to determine the mechanical and physical properties of their products to keep materials safe and durable throughout their lifespan. Bone screws, implants, luer locks, tubing, wiring, dental implants, and other various medical devices must all undergo quality control processes.
Materials testing, including determining the durability of products, is a required process. Researchers from prominent laboratories, medical companies, manufacturers, and leading universities come to ADMET to acquire necessary testing machines. Often, the twisting and torsion capabilities of screws, wires, tubing, luer locks, medical adhesives, and other devices must be analyzed before sending a product to market.
The torsional testing machines from ADMET provide a solution for maximum torsional stiffness and minimal axial friction as well as many more tests providing unlimited rotation in both directions. The eXpert 9000 Series offers both a horizontal and vertical orientation, depending on industry needs. As such, the ADMET engineering team can tailor these systems based on the requirements of customers, including extended lengths, environmental controls, and high-speed spindles, to name a few projects we have participated in in the past.
Horizontal systems include a fixed spindle with sliding tail stock. A reaction torque transducer can be attached to the tail stock or a rotary torque transducer can be assembled onto the drive spindle. Vertical systems, on the other hand, employ a sliding drive spindle.
The 9000 Series is capable of conducting both static and fatigue testing, which will help users determine how long a material will last after installation, whether the substance is a body implant, needle, orthopedic device, or tubing.
