Load Frame

To facilitate materials testing on the mesoscale, Psylotech, Evanston, IL, offers the TS™ modular platform that validates material models across 6 orders of magnitude of force and length scales. Users can discern NIST-traceable stress and strain readings ranging from soft tissue to macro-scale composite layups. Force capacities are available from 100N to 10kN, with a local displacement sensor to minimize measured compliance and verify global specimen strain.

Measurement System

KAMAN Precision Products, Colorado Springs, CO, offers the digiVIT non-contact position measuring system for monitoring movement, position, vibration, alignment, or deflection. The eddy current sensor for position/displacement/ proximity sensing features a self-tuning bridge that eliminates the need to connect to a PC to download a configuration file when changing sensors or doing high-level calibrations. All functions can be accessed through four pushbuttons on the front panel.

Achieving Reliable Inline Measurements in Production Environments

One of the most important changes in metrology in the past few decades has been the development of portable measuring devices. This has brought inspection right to the production line, as close to the part as possible. The change—sparked by the development of portable measuring arms and the emergence of laser trackers—has turned conventional industry inspection methods completely upside down.

New GASOMETER Design Uses Active Accommodation Offering Significant Improvements Vs. Liquid-sealed Methods

Active Accommodation means using a precision controlled and driven cylinder/piston assembly to collect and measure gas sample volumes without requiring energy to be extracted from the process that generates the gas. The mechanism uses lubricated O-Rings to seal the measuring chamber unlike classical Wet Test Meters that require a water or oil bath to produce an isolation seal.

Developing and Testing Electronic Control Units for Electric Drives

Air framers are looking to build more eco-friendly and economical aircraft, and they are turning to electric drives. One growing trend is to build more electrical aircraft by replacing pneumatic and hydraulic systems with electric actuators. Electric drives, therefore, will play an important role in the aircraft of the future. This paper examines the current state of technology for developing and testing electric drives.
