New TrendTracker From Instron

Instron®, a leading provider or testing equipment solutions designed to evaluate mechanical properties of materials and components, introduces TrendTracker, a software package for managing and analyzing test results for Bluehill 3 Materials Testing Software.

TrendTracker accelerates the data analysis workflow of a lab. With the TrendTracker Viewer application you can rapidly search and analyze Bluehill results. For a Quality Lab this means narrowing down the source of variation; for an R&D lab it means better evaluating design iterations to arrive at the optimal design; and for a high volume centralized testing lab it means easy distribution of results to your customers.

With the TrendTracker Plugin, Bluehill results across multiple samples tested over time are automatically exported to a robust and scalable database on Microsoft’s SQL Server. The TrendTracker Viewer provides an intuitive interface to search, display, and analyze results over time, and across multiple samples and test frames. No more file searching and copy-paste. The search results can also be exported to file formats that can be easily opened in statistical packages like Minitab and MATLAB.

The TrendTracker database can be installed on the customer’s SQL Server or on an Instron-distributed Express edition. Based on popular customer demand, we also included the batch export utility to migrate years of test results in existing Bluehill 2 and Bluehill 3 sample files.
