Instron® Electropuls® Electrodynamic Instruments Compared
to TestResources 800L Series Modular Test Systems - Competitive
Electrodynamic actuators have been around for
over 50 years but it wasn’t until the developments in materials
and manufacturing technology made them viable for test machine
usage. In the late 1990’s TestResources was one of the first
test machine companies to recognize that breakthrough technologies
had made servo electric and electro dynamic actuators not just
a viable alternative but the best choice for low force static
and dynamic testing applications.
Materials and manufacturing innovation have made tremendous
changes in the cost, performance and endurance of actuators
and motors loosely termed ‘electrodynamic’.
The impact of the innovation relegated servo hydraulic
test machines to their proper applications – a diminishing
part of the market — e.g. high force test applications
where loads were greater than 20000 lb (90 kN).
Electrodynamic innovations have continued to flourish
including increased load capacities, long life, friction
free, maintenance free and green power efficiencies that
double their value over servo hydraulics. TestResources
now has systems in the field with billions of cycles on
them. Also TestResources systems are now available with
load capacities in excess of 11,250 lb (50 kN).
TestResources - the best choice for
Electrodynamic Test Machines
Not only is TestResources one of the
first to use this technology, but we also took a new approach
to test machine design. We cleverly call it Smart Design. We chose
to focus on the best approach to serve mainstream applications
(the vast majority of the testing market) rather than to make
a ‘one size fits all’ instrument that forces compromises
in value on all users. TestResources determined that high frequency
applications drive up costs for customers of moderate frequency
applications. Not only that, but TestResources found they were
able to provide machines that meet over 95% of all ASTM, ISO,
JEDEC specifications for about HALF THE PRICE. And with more than
twice the stroke the machine is able to run many tests that machines
with limited stroke can’t.
