Instron® Electropuls® E10000 Compared
to TestResources 800L Series
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 fatigue 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. In 2007 Instron introduced
their competing product line, call Electropuls.
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.
