The newest edition to the ElectroForce load frame product portfolio from TA Instruments, New Castle, Del., boasts unparalleled dynamic performance and versatility. Moreover, it is suitable for testing a broad range of material or components, including thermoplastic and other elastomers, composites, bioplastics, and medical devices.
The new ElectroForce 3310 is a 1000 N dynamic mechanical testing instrument which features a patented, friction-free electromagnetic actuator that results in a durable test instrument that can perform tests for billions and billions of cycles and includes the industry’s reportedly only 10-year motor warranty. Enhancing the 3310’s performance envelope is the ability to add a torsion actuator, which allows the user to perform simultaneous axial-torsion tests. Alternatively, an extended stroke actuator, which increases the static testing capabilities of the test instrument by 150 mm, can be added for additional testing flexibility.
