ADMET Offers Low-Force and Cyclic Testing at MassPLASTICS

Share Article

Includes tensile and cyclic universal testing machines, specialized grips and fixtures.

ADMET Inc., a provider of integrated materials testing systems, is showcasing universal materials testing machines (UTMs), grips and fixtures for plastics testing here at MassPLASTICS (Booth #922). The machines and accessories are useful for testing plastics, polymers and films in tension, compression, flexure and shear.

ADMET'S eXpert lines of tabletop and floor-standing UTMs range in capacity from 1kN (225 lbf) to 150kN (33,000 lbf). ADMET's test control units offer a spectrum of price/performance choices. The eP Digital Controller and Precise Digital Controller offer accurate test programming and control, and convenient collection of test results, as well as test data transfer to spreadsheets and reporting software via RS232 Serial communications. The company's MTESTWindows™ PC/Windows-based materials testing system offers a complete software-based test control and reporting system, while the ADMETQuattro testing system adds cyclic testing programming and control.

ADMET is a well-established provider of testing systems to the plastics industry. Installations include:

  • An injection molding company that uses an ADMET eXpert 5603 tabletop machine equipped with an eP Digital Controller in an A2LA metrology lab for product development and production quality testing. The company produces small precision components and assemblies made from nylons, Liquid Silicone Rubber (LSR), Polybutylene Terephthalate (PBT) Polystyrenes, and thermoplastics with fiberglass content for industry, medical and defense.
  • A sports equipment manufacturer that uses an ADMET eXpert 2611 with MTESTWindows to qualify new vendors and finished plastic components before they are accepted for use in the company's products. MTESTWindows enables technicians to easily compare tensile and compression results to previous tests and specifications.
  • A medical resin manufacturer that tensile tests its polymer substrate to eliminate bonding issues between the resin and the substrate. An ADMET eXpert 5601 equipped with an eP Digital Controller is used to determine the proper tension adjustment for rollers during the manufacturing process.

ADMET products meet ASTM D638 and ISO 527 for tensile properties; ASTM D790, ASTM D6272 and ISO 178 for flexural properties; ASTM D1621 and ISO 844 for compressive properties; and ASTM D732 for properties in shear. ADMET also offers grips, fixtures, baths and heaters for testing a variety of specimens in different environments.
