Construction safety netting certification testing

Case study
Prior to purchasing the machine, test patches were taken off safety nets before their due date and kept until a batch were sent to our suppliers, which involved parcelling up and visiting the post office to send away for testing. This was time-consuming and expensive. Now we can test as and when required. We chose Mecmesin because they were the most helpful when enquiries were made.

Railcar spring testing

Case study
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.

Thermostatic Radiator Valve (TRV) operational torque

Case study
Tactile characteristics have become a very important aspect in TRV design. The Vortex-i has enabled Pegler Yorkshire to benchmark and assess new design proposals allowing detailed examination of dynamic characteristics and wear over prolonged use. As a result we can provide customers with TRVs of an increased quality and durability.

Not being an expert in force measurement, I have found Mecmesin to be an extremely capable partner in this field. They ensure that test solutions are found, they offer training in the use of the equipment and they are a competitive supplier of the service and calibration of all our measuring equipment.

Aircraft brake unit spring testing

Case study
Use of the MultiTest 5-xt 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 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.

“Only measuring up to a few Newtons of force with an AFG 2500 N was not enabling us to proceed with our investigation and Mecmesin kindly lent us a more sensitive AFG 10N which instantaneously improved the quality of data we were collecting.”

This test system is perfectly suited to our needs, giving us the flexibility we require to perform multiple tests with the certainty of obtaining reliable, accurate results. Undertaking these quality measurements in-house means we are also saving significant costs, as we no longer require the services of external test laboratories.

Mecmesin has customer service which provide unwavering support for our questions and ALWAYS come through with the results and answers we have needed. This solution continues to open doors for us and grow with our needs. It was everything we didn’t know we needed and everything we could ask for. It is simple to use and can be mastered using very user-friendly software and conversions into the programs we use every day. I look forward to taking our next steps with Mecmesin!

Having an in-house test capability is essential when developing new processes and products. Having the Mecmesin tester at Cambridge Nanotherm has allowed us to reduce test cycles significantly. The software package also gives us the ability to analyse the subtle differences in adhesion mechanisms and also gives us the ability to produce detailed reports for our suppliers and customers.
