Validation




ElectroPuls systems have been successfully used by many industries to run experiments that result in the quick release of products to market in a standards-driven testing environment. Examples of safety-critical applications in the dental and orthopedic industries include ASTM F543, ISO 72064, ISO 14801, ASTM F1717, and ISO 7209. Common examples of non-biomedical tests exist in the automotive industry such as engine mounts, plastics, and composites.

Instron has been updating and evolving ElectroPuls systems and customer services over the last ten years to ensure the highest levels of safety, consistency, and efficiency. In addition, Instron offers training by our engineers to ensure that the machines can be used immediately, to their full capability.

Simulation


Instron understands that it is a challenge to some of our customers to predict how products will behave and change over the years. It is often crucial for researchers to understand and replicate exact forces and motions. ElectroPuls provides you with the capability to do unconventional tests that replicate real life motions and events, as well as simple loading regimes. Let’s predict the future together.

Advanced Control ElectroPuls frames are capable of running both static and dynamic tests. These tests can produce more than just position, load or strain waveforms; why not choose energy, acceleration, or in fact any user-defined calculation? This diversity gives you the potential to replicate real life situations.
