  • Production Test Application: Monitoring Metal Stamping Press
    Metal stamping is widely used to shape metal parts in the automotive industry. During the manufacture of torque converters, stamping is used to create a series of indentations that hold metal vanes that are used to transmit the power from the engine to the transmission though a fluid. Hydraulic
  • Production Test: Monitoring a Metal Stamping Press
    CAS DataLoggers recently provided the real-time data acquisition solution for an automotive manufacturer using metal stamping presses to shape their torque converters. Stamping was used to create a series of indentations that held metal vanes used to transmit the power from the engine
  • Metal-faced sensors
    sensors suit 80% of sensing applications today; but plastic-face sensors are not designed to stand up to the harsh conditions of severe industrial environments. Abrasion tests on plastic and metal-faced sensors show how well they withstand metal-to-metal contact. The metal-face sensor shows wear
  • Lighting Strike Test Results
    As the application of composite aero structures has increased, the effect of lightning strike damage and the structural tolerance necessary to absorb this damage has required further test investigation. To enhance the damage tolerance capability of composite sandwich structures used for commercial
  • Weathering Test Methods
    irradiance xenon or metal halide exposures towards the other end. Organizing exposures in this manner points out a primary consideration for the engineer; a trade off exists between acceleration (speed of obtaining testing results) and confidence (types and rates of degradation are what is actually observed
  • Nonmetallic Case: Adhesive Bonding Failure on Metal Part
    An assembly plant processing parts for the petrochemical industry was having difficulty getting any epoxy glue to bond two metal pieces. The problem seemed isolated to a specific batch of parts which had been received from a supplier. A random selection of 5 unglued parts was submitted to Sherry
  • Looking for an Alternative Yellow Metal Corrosion Inhibitor
    For the last thirty years, benzotriazole and its derivatives have dominated industrial yellow metal corrosion inhibitors. By far, the most popular of these has been tolyltriazole. It has become the industry standard and is, today, usually the only copper corrosion inhibitor considered by water
  • Latest Developments in Barrier Property Test of Package
    of the important indexes of flexible package, barrier property directly influences the quality guarantee period of inner content. In fact, except for metal cans and packing box of pulp-molded aluminum, one complete package mainly consists of bottle body and bottle cap. Bottle body is the main test object
  • The Need to Test Overall Barrier Property of Package
    Abstract: This article briefs on the current conditions of package barrier property testing. Based on field test data, the need to test overall barrier property of package is analyzed. Liquid is mainly packaged in containers. Except for metal cans and packing box of pulp-molded aluminum, one
  • Black oxide passes hydrogen-embrittlement test
    Protective coating has no adverse effects on fastener life. Notched square-bar specimens are black-oxide coated and tested to failure to determine susceptibility to hydrogen embrittlement. Fastener manufacturers routinely apply a protective finish to bolts and screws that prevents rust
  • Testing the Strength and Integrity of Welding Studs Attached to Sheet Metal
    The Mountz Weld Stud Test Tool is designed for use during the production of sheet metal products to test the strength and integrity of welds used to attach threaded studs to the sheet metal. A company that manufacturers popcorn machines, conveyor ovens, and toasters in Missouri wanted capability
  • Sheet-Metal Fabricator Grows at 40% Per Year for 3 Years
    MNdustries, Inc. is a 40,000 square-foot full-service sheet-metal fabricator. The shop's main application was originally custom powder coatings, but soon the company began investing in sheet metal fabrication equipment and started a job shop to complement the powder coating portion of the business
  • Portable Hardness Test Technology for Assessing Titanium Weld Quality (.pdf)
    Portable hardness testing technology was developed in this project and was based on an oxygen equivalent (OE) database for CP titanium weld metals. The database was created by testing the properties of full penetration autogenous welds made from a number of heats and using different welding
  • The Formability of Perforated Metal
    The Department of Materials Science and Engineering at Ohio State University using methods, tooling, and a testing machine of their design, generally referred to as the OSU Formability Test, were sponsored by the Industrial Perforators Association to evaluate the capacity of various types
  • High-Tech, Space-Age Metal Surface Enhancement Coating Solves Wear and Release Problems for Pine Instrument Company's Gyratory Compaction Asphalt Testers
    High-Tech, Space-Age Metal Surface Enhancement Coating Solves Wear and Release Problems for Pine Instrument Company's Gyratory Compaction Asphalt Testers. The development of computer-controlled asphalt testing equipment to simulate and then quantify and predict the punishment which various asphalt
  • Hall Sensor - Test Geartooth Sensing
    e best ferrous targets are made of cold-rolled low carbon steel. Sintered-metal targets are also usable, although care must be taken to ensure uniform material composition and density.
