Rycobel the European partner of Thwing-Albert Instrument Company offered an afternoon demonstration for physical testing.  The group that attended the session included laboratory technicians and quality control departments from a variety of industries. 

An overview kicked off the session which educated the customers about the different aspects of physical testing and the corresponding testing equipment.  A number of topics that were also discussed:

  • Sample cutters and how to decide what cutter is right for your materials. 
  • Using tensile testers for measuring ultimate tensile strength and maximum elongation.
  • The difference between a static and dynamic coefficient of friction using the FP-2260 Friction/Peel tester.
  • Different types of Taber® abrasion equipment and the different applications they can be used to measure.

Attendees were encouraged to bring their own materials for the hands on demonstration.  This allowed the customers to experience firsthand the user friendly equipment and test their materials.  At the same time they were also able to see for themselves the level of high precision the machines offer as well as investigate innovative physical testing equipment.

The end result was a positive dialog with the attendees about their satisfaction regarding the physical testing equipment available for their laboratories.  Rycobel plans to offer more seminars if you are interested you can request more information for the next available demonstration by completing this form.
