Model 3369 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
have also evolved to become positioned as Instron's line of 'most
affordable' test machines. It is true 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. When it comes to specific comparisons
between Instron and TestResources, TestResources solution
is less expensive and truly affordable, typically costing
approximately HALF PRICE of a comparable Instron.
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 has pioneered a new approach
to test machine design. We cleverly call it SMART DESIGN. Our
design 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 design team follows the 95/50 RULE which
means that TestResources Electromechanical Test machines target
95% of the full range of applications served by Instron’s
3300 Series at 50% of the price or cost of a comparable Instron.
Our business strategy has been to deliver machines optimized to
common static test applications, including the vast majority of
industry standard tests. With our Q/XYLive controller, we can
even perform cyclic tests. 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 300R Series
test machines that are slightly higher in price.

info about Electromechanical Test Machines and your applications
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 an experienced
test 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.
