3340 Series Compared to TestResources
Electromechanical test machines have been around
for almost 70 years but it wasn’t until the developments
in materials and manufacturing technology and software development
that has made them truly affordable while retaining their inherant
flexible nature as 'universal' test machines.
Instron 3300 Series universal test machines
evolved to become their 'most affordable' test machines. Note
that Instron's use of the word 'affordable' is an internal reference,
given that the 3300 series is affordable compared to Instron's
expensive 5900 Series.
TestResources manufactures a wide
selection of standard electromechanical test machines
with over 500 test accessories for tension and compression
test applications. In any solution comparison between
Instron and TestResources, TestResources solution is truly
affordable, typically costing HALF PRICE of a comparable
Beginning in the late 1990's, TestResources
products, including almost 100 test machines and over
500 test fixtures and accessories, were made to be much
more affordable because of our new Smart Design approach
to manufacturing. The key to our Smart Design philosophy
was to design products for their most common applications,
not for out-lyer or marginal applications that push requirements
and manufacturing costs higher and higher. We were able
to meet the vast majority of customers needs by delivering
a pragmatic mainstream solution.
In our experience,
first time test machine buyers need to perform a few known
and relatively standard test applications and so they
need an affordable turnkey solution so that they can economically
justify the purchase of a machine. Generally speaking,
for these users, the test machine must perform your
tests efficiently, accurately and inexpensively.

TestResources - the best choice for
Electromechanical Test Machines
TestResources took a new approach to test
machine design. We cleverly call it SMART DESIGN. Our process
begins by gathering test applications information to identify
the machine design requirements for each universal test machine.
Typically each machine performs over 1000 ASTM, ISO, EN, DIN and
JEDEC industry standard test methods. These requirements became
our baseline expectations for test machine performance.
Our machine design follows the 95/50 RULE
which means that TestResources 200Q and 300Q Series Test machines
target 95% of all the applications served by Instron’s 3300
Series at 50% of the price of Instron. Our business strategy has
been to deliver machines that are optimized to common static test
applications, including those that require cycling between load
and position limits. The 5% that are not covered tend to be associated
with tests that require more than two segments of machine control.
Those applications are served by our 200R and 300R test machines
that are slightly higher in price.

Why do you want to talk with
an Application Engineer? We have found that it helps customers
to discuss the details of their applications with our applications
engineer. Even for those experienced with testing it is not unusual
for our engineers to uncover an overlooked consideration or even
a misunderstanding about the requirements in a published standard
test method. Add to this the fact that we have the widest variety
of product offerings and it is really worth your while to spend
30 minutes talking with one of our engineers.
Discussions help because our customers tend
to have testing applications with some unique consideration. Customers
who are new to testing tend to consider training to be very important.
Some customers want to key in on how the measurement is taken,
or how the fixture might be engineered for their unique test sample.
Generally, we find that each customer's test sample is unique
and we also know that the presentation of the test report is especially
critical to get right.
