Analyzing performance of Universal Testing Systems using Process Capability Analysis

Manufacturers/OEMs are constantly striving to develop processes that will produce defect-free products. In this need for zero defect solution, experts strategize different ways to monitor process performances. One such metric is the Process Capability Analysis (PCA). The fundamental concept of PCA requires experts to understand variation of data from the pre-defined tolerance limits for an individual process. As Instron systems typically involve the process of testing and measuring, companies investigate this process’ consistency over multiple samples, over multiple batches and over multiple systems installed at different sites.

2710-100 Series Screw Side-Action Grips

Screw side-action grips provide a very simple and efficient method for holding test specimens in a wide range of applications. The dual - acting design of 2710-100 series grips means that jaw faces can be adjusted to accommodate different specimen thicknesses. This ensures that the line of tensile force remains concentric with the grip body. They can be equipped with a selection of interchangeable grip jaw faces in various sizes and choice of surfaces including smooth ground, rubber-coated and serrated. Line contact and special coated faces are also available. The unique ‘snap-on’ jaw face attachment makes changing faces extremely quick and simple.
