Overcoming Sheet Metal Testing Challenges

With a wide range of applications varying from white goods, automotive, and aerospace applications, sheet metals are often high in strength relative to their cross section area. It’s important to note that formability and ductility is also crucial, for which the common testing requirements are similar across applications. Explore the challenges in sheet metal testing.

Importance of Medical Packaging Standards

"The integrity of medical packaging is often evaluated with equal attention and rigor as the medical device itself, and should not be considered secondary to the device when it comes to qualification testing. Ultimately, the packaging is a vessel for the drug, device, or product and needs to contain and protect what is inside."

An Introduction to Digital Image Correlation

The benefits of Digital Image Correlation (DIC) include measuring strain without requiring physical contact, viewing full-field data (like thousands of tiny extensometers), and not needing to know where to place the strain gauge/extensometer before a test starts. The following presentation gives an introduction to this optical technique.

Have You Thought About The Implications If The Material for Airbags Responds Poorly?

Fulfilling the requirements of industry standards and being competitive on the market are keys to success in the automotive sector. In the automotive industry, design and performance are equally important. A manufacturer of car interiors contacted Instron® to check the quality of leather used to cover airbags, including its behavior after sunlight and climate changes. Estimating the performance of a material covering airbags involves many factors around costs and benefits.
