  • When: Weds, June 16, 2021
  • Time: 1:00PM - 2:00PM Eastern
  • Cost: Free to Attend - Registration Required
  • Where: Virtual - GoToWebinar
  • Presenter: Moses da Rocha

This webinar will focus on the most common approach to measuring the adhesion strength of two materials bonded together with an adherent. Commonly known as the T-Peel Test, this type of testing can be found in industries like packaging, automotive, leather and upholstery, food, and beverage and many more.

This test is a quick, simple, and repeatable method when establishing quality or safety standards in adhesion strength testing. We’ll be discussing the benefits of T-Peel tests over other adhesion test types as well as a live demonstration of pass/fail criteria.

What You’ll Learn:

The importance of Adhesion strength testing
Industries where adhesion testing is critical
Best methods of T-Peel Testing (Manual, Motorized or Automated)
Selection the best grips and fixtures
Factors that affect consistent and repeatable testing
Capturing and analyzing test data

Who should attend:

Manufacturing, Production and Quality Managers and Engineers involved in:

Pharmaceutical and Medical Device
Food & Beverage
Electrical and Mechanical Assembly
Leather and Upholstery
Glue and Adhesives

Mecmesin OmniTest machine demo by the Duchess of Sussex at University of Chichester Tech Park opening

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex officially opened the University of Chichester’s new Engineering and Digital Technology Park on 3rd October 2018. Part of the tour of the £35million development, based at the Bognor Regis campus, was a visit to the Department of Engineering and Design. The laboratory features several Mecmesin force measurement machines, notably a 50 kN OmniTest Universal Testing Machine (UTM); a state-of-the-art software-controlled materials testing system.

Methods of force and torque testing for food packaging quality

Packaging solutions for food are incredibly diverse; in all aspects of physical design, mechanical function and aesthetic appeal. Their purpose is more straightforward: be safe, secure, yet easy to open, close or reliably re-seal; dispense cleanly and efficiently; minimise loss and waste; maximise shelf life; be cost-effective to manufacture and ultimately recycle or dispose of. Add to that, the consumer desire for attractive and innovative new designs, and the straightforward ultimate purpose can become quite involved in terms of meeting each individual challenge.

Mecmesin white paper: Force testing in medical tubing

Plastic medical tubing is central to the provision of effective health care in the 21st century. It is essential for the delivery of blood, nutrients and gases to the patient, and for the execution of minimally invasive surgical procedures such as cardiac angioplasty, which have proliferated widely over recent years. This article examines four force testing procedures for plastic medical tubing and explores the benefits and methodological considerations of each.

Universal testing machine range (0.5 - 5 kN)

Mecmesin offers a wide range of universal testing machines (UTM) for tension and compression testing. At the top end, our MultiTest-i systems are driven by the powerful Emperor™ control and analysis software on a separate PC, while our production-level testers in the MultiTest-xt series offer touch-screen ease of use and rapid processing. All of these systems give fully programmed control and accurate, repeatable testing, with test libraries for instant recall.
