Spring design and manufacture

Case study
Longcroft Engineering has a requirement to accurately measure the force on springs for a wide variety of applications. Clients frequently request new concepts and designs, and Mecmesin has been able to provide the versatility and quality we require, so that we can serve these customers.

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.

Syringe pump calibrator

Case study
Pressure sensor calibration is key to the accurate ‘occlusion’ monitoring performance of Cardinal Health medical infusion devices. A precise, repeatable and reliable ‘occlusion’ force calibration tool is essential for our customers, service personnel and production use. Mecmesin have provided expert design advice, equipment samples and test strategies to ensure Cardinal Health have been able to achieve these aims.

Alumina sphere crush test

Case study
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!

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.

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.

We tried to find a solution provider for our application, however no-one was able to provide a clear test method and appropriate test fixtures. We chose Mecmesin as their product is very versatile and gave us the clear, reliable results. This unique system fits perfectly to our application.

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.

Serrated 2-way plane grips firmly grasp tray and lid elements
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.

The performance to standard of our biopsy devices is critical, and our MultiTest systems enable a rapid and accurate assessment of every one. The repeatability of the test cycle, and above all the traceability of each unit under test, gives us the guarantees we need.
