Have you ever wondered if the seatbelt in your vehicle is strong enough to restrain you in a collision? How about the average person pulling the cork out of a wine bottle? Both of these scenarios represent a small fraction of the number of everyday items that require ‘pulling’.
Our ability to pull anything is usually defined by its tensile strength. For manufacturers, it is the critical component in product quality or in extreme cases, life or death situations.
This webinar will focus on the importance of pull or tensile testing in everyday life and the methods used by manufacturers to ensure safety and quality

Bread Softness: White and Whole-wheat | Mecmesin | Texture Analysis https://hubs.la/H0-xpB-0

Wholewheat bread is frequently regarded by consumers as a healthier choice than white bread made from more refined flour. However, the texture of white bread is often regarded as preferable. Can whole-wheat bread be produced with the same degree of firmness as white bread, and can this be objectively measured?
Consumer textural experience of bread is more than just firmness, and includes dryness and mouthfeel, but this test method does provide accurate and repeatable measurement of firmness. Here it was useful to compare different products, but equally it can be applied to quality assure product consistency, and to measure changes in product during shelf life.

The primary objective for measuring and analyzing the torque characteristics of a container cap is to accurately determine not only the quality of the part or process but also the root cause of a wide variety of defects.
This webinar will focus on the proper process for selecting an ideal torque testing system, identifying and troubleshooting variables that impact torque values, setting up repeatable torque tests and establishing consistent testing standards for your products.

The Medical, Pharmaceutical and Chemical Packaging sectors take product safety very seriously. Whether it is a bottle of prescription medication or a gallon of bleach, it is critical for Grandma to get her medication or for Dad to do the laundry, while preventing little Cody from doing either.
Child Resistant Closure (CRC) caps essentially add an extra safety mechanism to make it harder if not impossible for children to uncap medication or chemical containers. 'Push and Twist’, and ‘Squeeze and Twist’ are two typical designs.
This webinar will focus on the common methods for CRC testing and types of equipment required.

The accuracy of the instrument itself, though important, is only one piece of the measurement accuracy puzzle. Grip and fixture selection plays a critical role in the applications in Force and Materials quality testing. The critical elements of repeatability and consistency are bolstered by grips and fixtures that ensure:

That the sample does not slip.
The sample does not move, wiggle, shake or wobble during the test.
That all operators fixture the sample the exact same way.

Case Study: Insertion and withdrawal cyclic testing of aircraft audio connectors

Audio jacks, USB ports, Ethernet ports and other sockets may be housed in the passenger control unit or seat back and each must connect securely to any compatible plugs or connectors on the passengers’ device. Long life, reliability and maintainability are key factors in audio connectors—the passenger relies on the unit to work, even though they may be used thousands of times, and potentially with little care.

The MultiTest can perform the cyclic compression and tensile strokes needed to push in and pull out the connector plug to/from the jack. The fundamental test cycles continue as the software looks for a drop in insertion force. If this force falls below a certain programmable tolerance threshold, the run stops, and the sample is graded pass or fail depending on the time duration of the test. This is automatically calculated and indicated in the graphical results.
