This video shows the overview of Mecmesin's Basic Force Gauge. This basic force gauge is affordable and mid-range digital force gauge.
On Feb 15, Agilent Technologies will introduce a new product that will completely redefine oscilloscopes as you know them. When you see our newest oscilloscope your only question will be- "What should I do with my old oscilloscope?" Here are a few more ideas...
Phil Harrop from Scientific Solutions walks us through the Gamry Potentiostat which is an extremely sensitive device that can be used for corrosion studies. It would be of use to anyone who needs to perform accelerated corrosion testing, such as coating manufacturers or metal manufacturers.
In this video Raymond Mercier highlights how Thermo Scientific technologies enable total liquid handling and transfer options in the lab.
This video shows fatigue test conducted on springs with servo-hydraulic load frames-HA series from Zwick.
This training video from Brookfield Engineering explains how to unpack and recognize each part of a viscometer.
The Sensys Evo is a versatile thermal analyzer that can be used as a Differential Scanning Calorimeter (DSC) or for thermogravimetry (TG). It uses a highly sensitive sensor that ensures as much heat is detected as possible and is suited to applications where mass/heat changes need to be detected.
The dynamic image technique looks at particles in motion, providing additional critical information. Besides particle size, numerous shape parameters are obtained. As the images are taken, statistical data for all measurement parameters are calculated and recorded. At the same time, thumbnail images of each particle are saved for post-analysis viewing and screening.
This video shows Mark Pothecary from Malvern Instruments giving an overview of OMNISEC system, an advanced GPC/SEC solution developed for the characterization of natural and synthetic polymers, and proteins.
Curt Marcott from Light Light Solutions tells us about his experiences characterizing materials using the NanoIR from Anasys Instruments. In particular he was excited by the fact that the technique combines AFM and IR spectroscopy, and has spatial resolution an order of magnitude better than conventional IR, which means you can characterize various features of a sample, or even analyze compositional differences across an interface.
This video briefly illustrates the features and uses of the Small Sample Adapter (SSA) from Brookfield Engineering. Sample volumes in the order of 2 to 16 mL can be measured precisely using the SSA at defined shear rates.
This video is the first part of an in depth interview with Robert Strehle, Industry Manager Academia, Zwick at the testXpo - 19th Forum for Materials Testing at Zwick in Ulm. This video discusses high temperature testing.
This video shows how to measure the area under the curve on an oscilloscope from Agilent Technologies.
In this video Jeremy Warren, CEO from NanoSight talks about the nanoparticle tracking analysis system named NS300 from NanoSight. The NS300 can visualize and measure particles in suspension in the size range 10-2000nm (depending on material).
