Push or compressive testing helps determine the limits of most products that require constant pushing or compression. Compression testing is critical in the manufacturing process, as well as determining how products and components function in their day to day operations.

This is a foundational level webinar and will focus on the importance of push or compression testing in everyday life and the methods used by manufacturers to ensure safety and quality.

What You’ll Learn:

The importance of Compression (push) testing
How compression testing enhances product quality
What happens when samples fail
The different Types of compression testing
Industries where compression testing is critical
Best methods of compression Testing (Manual, Motorized or Automated)

Who should attend:
Manufacturing, Production and Quality Managers and Engineers involved in:

  • Plastics and Blow-molding
  • Pharmaceutical and Medical Device
  • Beverage and Bottling
  • Electrical and Mechanical Assembly
  • Packaging
  • Automotive

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.
