Compression

Compression testing graphic

Compression testing is a way of determining how something will react when a compressive force is applied to it.

Compressive burst

Compressive burst testing graphic

The integrity of a fluid or gas-filled container can be tested in terms of its propensity to burst.

Compressive shear

Compressive shear testing graphic

Compressive shear testing is simply the pushing apart of a material specimen by applying compressive force from opposite side

Ergonomic strength and Manual handling

We exert force and torque with our muscles in almost all our everyday activities.

Flexure

Flexural or bend testing is used It is a way of determining how something will react when it is put under opposing forces acr

Penetration and Puncture resistance

Penetration and puncture resistance testing graphic

Penetration resistance testing involves the insertion of a probe into a material to a known depth.

Top-Load

Top-load testing graphic

Top-load testing (also known as 'column-crush' and 'axial force resistance') is performed mainly on blow moulded, thermoforme

“The Mecmesin digital torque screwdriver was simple and straightforward to operate and it was very helpful that the user guide pdf was on the net.”

The Mecmesin MultiTest 1-x enables us to ensure the consistently high manufacturing quality of our PET bottles. The system conveniently allows us to perform top-load testing and confirm free height and integrates easily with our data collection system, increasing our analytical efficiency. I would have no hesitation in recommending this first rate instrument.

"Mecmesin were able to offer us a texture analyser test system, which met with our testing needs. The range of probes supplied have been extremely useful, as it enables more variations of test to be performed with just the one system. This has been very useful as our product has 3 different component ingredients, which can be individually analysed using their dedicated test cells provided."

he test solution allows us to assess the ability of our potassium sorbate suppliers to provide a grade that will not physically deteriorate through blending and storage, yet will enable us to extend the shelf life of our products, whilst enjoying the savings from reduced manufacturing costs. Mecmesin were exceedingly helpful at first contact and were very knowledgeable and professional throughout the process of test development. The company made great effort to ensure we achieved a working, reliable, repeatable and reproducible system that met all our requirements at a sensible price.

Silgan Plastics has utilised the Mecmesin tester in several of our plants over the last two years to monitor top-load. It brings a wealth of features at a very competitive price. We pride ourselves on being the forefront of container performance and capability and the 5-x top-load tester is a valued piece of our strategy.

Our customer’s quality laboratory decided to upgrade their equipment and contacted G.T. Michelli Co. to provide them with a new system. Initially we evaluated a Mecmesin competitor’s system, and it failed to meet the standards required. We had recently sold a Mecmesin torque tester to another customer and so were aware of the force test stands the company manufactures. I contacted Mecmesin’s technical sales engineers and supplied some samples and within days a complete solution was developed and demonstrated. This system now performs our customer’s tests seamlessly, with higher accuracy and less uncertainty than ever before. The system is so easy to use and the software so intuitive that the operator needed very little assistance!

Upgrading our standard test method with a Mecmesin-i tester was one of the best decisions we made recently. Not only did the new testing machine allow us to utilize the replaced equipment for other projects, but it also improved the reliability of the test, and the reproducibility of test results. Mecmesin’s sales team provided us with all the information needed to make the decision to buy the right testing machine.

We purchased the MultiTest 10-i to test 80% of the springs which we have in our railcars. The system is very easy to use and the program is convenient to test. Also the support of A & D Korea was very positive.

Over the course of my PhD I have developed a new methodology to physically test the mechanical performance of teeth using the Mecmesin MultiTest 2.5-i. At the start of my project I needed a small, low cost, but accurate materials testing machine which could be programmed, and fitted, to run a large number of different test programs. The easy-to-use interface, accuracy and reliability of the MultiTest 2.5-i and the excellent service from Mecmesin has made my project run smoothly and has produced highly publishable results.

Use of the MultiTest 5-x has simplified and accelerated the testing of aircraft brake unit springs. Having input the parameters per the CMM into the unit, we were able to test a spring at the touch of a button and have a near instantaneous results without ambiguity. The machine has not only simplified the testing procedure, it has helped to improve the process and flow through the shop.

The new xt system is simple and tough enough for us to use in a production environment, while simultaneously allowing us to get the information we need. Being a complete system has made integrating it into our Quality Assurance system straight forward. The information we receive allows us to preempt issues before they can affect quality, with much less effort than previously. This means we have less waste, improved efficiencies and can spend more time making our products.
