Torsion Add-On: Biaxial Capability for 5900 Systems

Torsion Add-On Accessory: Biaxial Capability for 5900 Systems

For New and Existing Instron® 5942, 5943, 5944, 5965, 5966, 5967, 5969
Simple multi-axis testing is necessary to ensure the performance of many consumer products, packaging, electronics, automotive components, and medical devices. The Instron Torsion Add-On is designed for simple, simultaneous axial and torsional testing and easily mounts to any new and existing 594X or 596X systems. Add torsion to your 5900 machines to simulate real-world use of your product and speed up product development while freeing up lab space.  The Torsion Add-On, controlled through Bluehill® Universal Software, provides users with calculations incorporating force, torque, displacement, and rotation.

Simulate Real-World Use of Your Product

Functional testing is all about simulating real-world use of your product. Many consumer products, especially packaging for pharmaceuticals, food, makeup, etc. are subjected to simple multi-axis loading.

Speed-Up Product Development

When it comes to developing new products in the medical device or electronics industry, insuring product durability under biaxial loading is crucial. Many companies isolate axial-only and torsional-only testing. However, by combining both tests, laboratories can decrease test time and speed up the product development process.

Free-Up Lab Benchtop Space

Benchtop space is desirable real estate for many laboratories. Laboratories that perform both axial-only and torsional-only tests on two separate machines can save laboratory space by adding torsion capabilities to their traditionally axial-only machine.
