  • Break it on purpose
    Highly Accelerated Life Testing during design can make products last longer and reduce service headaches. A unit clamped to the vibration table ready for testing is visible through the open door of the Halt chamber. Air ducts vector temperature-controlled air across the unit while the vibration
  • Bad Cable or Bad Test Fixture?
    A common testing problem is determining whether a reported failure is truly a problem with the Device-Under-Test or a problem with the test interface. Test connectors wear out with repeated usage, pins break, plating is worn off and intermittent readings can occur. Any defects in the test interface
  • Drive Helps Gear Dyno Keep its Cool
    and load. Such tractor dynos lack control sensitivity needed for the work. A differential break-in test, for example, runs 2 hr, during which technicians plot differential temperature versus time, a measure of drag torque. The tests also heat the hydraulic oil, changing its viscosity and, hence
  • White Paper - Push/Pull Testing
    Overview of the Push/Pull test procedure and its role in the caster, wheel and material handling industry. Ergonomics are critical in many applications and this testing device serves as a measuring stick for both initial break away forces and sustained movement forces.
  • Testing the Integrity of Welds Holding Threaded Studs onto Sheet Metal
    control tool to test and verify if a threaded stud is securely welded or if it will simply break off. The Weld Stud Test Tool by Mountz, Inc. is designed for a quick and easy controlled test of the integrity of welds holding threaded studs onto sheet metal.
  • Maximizing Your Prism4 CMMS Data Assets
    is a dose of proven technology that won't break the budget and offers greater returns for an existing system. Arnold Engineering Development Center (AEDC) in the United States is the premier test and development center for flight simulation in the United States Air Force. The impressive facility
  • What China wants in electronics testing
    How can companies making test equipment break into the growing Chinese market? The booming electronics industry in China beckons Western test-equipment suppliers. But doing business in China is not as simple as sending catalogsand a sales force, then waiting for orders to pour in. Chinese
  • Solid-State ac Power Sources for Transformer Testing
    High-power electronics can now replace motor-generator sets for testing distribution transformers. * Solid-state ac-power sources combine the variable-frequency and voltage-power sources into a single package. * Tests sets are hardened against impulse events like those caused by lightning-strike
  • | Electronics Industry News for EEs & Engineering Managers
    Sematech licenses automation test technology to Peer Micronic enters TFT-LCD mask metrology market KLA-Tencor, Accretech reach out-of-court settlement is NEC ARM's third arch licensee? Excelerate to supply SECS/GEM software to Robotic Vision Microfluidic battery runs on water Sematech calls meeting
  • Arc Tracking and Silicone Self-Fusing Tape
    Many electrical insulation applications are designed with dielectric breakdown strength (DBS), or the voltage potential required to break through an electrically insulating material, as a major factor. While this is a good test to determine how resistive a material is through its volume it does
  • Under the weather
    development schedules now land new products on the showroom floor at break-neck speed. Gone are the days when designs had the luxury of long in-depth testing programs. Accelerated development schedules present a conundrum of sorts when it comes to the effects of weathering. The forces of nature haven't
  • Testing transmission components in the real world
    Testing automatic transmission components under real-world conditions is challenging for many manufacturers. It is difficult and costly to measure performance of critical components such as torque converters in an operating transmission. On-vehicle testing can determine the life of the components
  • UV-VIS Spectroscopy of Tannins and Phenols in Red Wine
    Measurement of wine color and tannins involves spectroscopic analysis in the UV and visible region. The test protocols are complex and are hampered by the need make multiple wavelength measurements. A typical spectrophotometer can only make one wavelength measurement at a time. In addition
  • Suzuki Reno
    Want an environmentally friendly car that doesn't break the bank? Consider something like a little Suzuki Reno. The Reno's conventional 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine gives it a rating of 23 mpg in the city and 30 mpg on the highway. And with an MRP of only $13,499, it is much more wallet-friendly
  • Bearings That Lube for Less
    . By Arthur Jones and Aliesha Pocratsky They could if they are made from powder metal (PM). Engineers have relied on bearings and bushings made from PM for over 80 years, and recent advances have made PM parts even more attractive. Reliable test data, quality control, and specifications can help
  • Smart modeler guides designers and makes changes fast
    time to market. The program imports geometry from any source using a simple drag-and-drop operation. With this kind of performance, I can usually import a part from Pro/Engineer and make changes to it faster than the original designer making the same changes in Pro/E. As a test, try this with your
