Universal Testing machine for many applications

Insertion extraction 1

The Thwing Albert's universal materials testers can be modified to meet a broad range of test applications from simple to complex.

Equipped with the right fixture, this tensile tester can handle multiple applications:

  • Medical needle fixture
    Simulates the amount of force required to insert and extract syringes from different bottles.
  • Medical Pouch Tear Fixture
    This fixture simulates the tear on a medical package/pouch
  • Package Seal Strength Fixture
    The Package Seal Strength Fixture is designed to use a vacuum powered clamping system to hold unique samples to test the seal strength for a variety of applications.
  • Bend test fixture
    Bend test fixture to test medical ampoules.

JDC Cutter for sample preparation

The JDC Sample Cutter creates test strips to an exact width and parallel throughout their entire length in accordance with MEET: ASTM F88, ASTM D882, ASTM D6287, and TAPPI 494. Cuts made to prepare a sample for tensile testing are critical to the accuracy and quality of the results. Preparing a sample without jagged edges or nicks is vital to ensure accurate tensile results.

Rycolab Heat Seal Tester

Heat Seal Tester RL HS A

The ‘heat sealer’ simulates, in the lab, the sealing in a production environment. Laminated films and other packaging materials are sealed with this unit in a simple way. Production parameters such as temperature, pressure and time can be set. In this way one looks for the best possible seal strength.

Worker Integra : Leak and flow test system

The TME WORKER Integra™ is a bench-top, high resolution (as low as 0.0001 psi) test instrument with a small footprint and user-friendly ease of operation. The system can be configured to perform pressure or vacuum decay leak testing, flow and occlusion testing on non-porous, flexible and rigid products.
