Compression Presses

Anton Paar TriTec SA (previously CSM Instruments) has been leader in the development of instruments for surface mechanical properties characterization for over 30 years in both research and industrial fields.
CSM Instruments develops, manufactures and sells instruments to characterize mechanical properties of surfaces. We have been the world leader in this market for more than 30 years, first under the name of LSRH then CSEM.
CSM Instruments provides equipment that allows the mechanical characterization of a wide range of surfaces and bulk materials. Adhesion of paints, optical thin films or hard coatings can be defined using one of our Scratch Testers. These span the nano to the macro range to analyze the widest range of materials. Dynamic testing measurements can be performed to define not only the hardness of the material, but also to evaluate the plastic and elastic deformation, the elasticity module, creep and much more. For wear testing we offer the Tribometer, based on the pin-on-disc principle that operates both in the Micro and Nano regime; to record the frictional coefficient and measure the wear volume. Other equipment measures film thickness. Additionally, CSM provides three dimensional viewing capabilities of sample surfaces under most testing regimes.

Citation:
“My work is related to education and research in the field of fatigue and fracture of structures, with a focus on life design and analysis of gas turbine and aero engine. My research team has been using the nCode software to analyze the fatigue life of gas turbine rotors and to undertake research in high temperature damage tolerant design. Currently, the software has been successfully applied to the life analysis of ultra-supercritical turbines and cylinders, and the damage tolerant design of a new type of welded rotor. The software has a friendly interface and allows for my PhD students to develop new analysis methods. The analysis results obtained by the software are also in agreement with measurements. We like the software. It is a powerful analysis platform for research indeed.”

James Instruments Inc., Chicago IL, USA
3727 N. Kedzie Avenue, Chicago, IL 60618 – 4545, USA

James Instruments Inc. specialises in Non-Destructive Testing equipment for concrete and other construction materials. Central to the improvement of the construction infrastructure are tools that evaluate the condition of existing construction. Destructive and Non-Destructive Testing (NDT) techniques are applied. Destructive tests can provide direct information, but are relatively expensive, time-consuming and cause damage to the structure. Destructive test results often cannot be evaluated using statistical approaches because the number of locations in the structure that can be tested without damage to the structure is limited. On the other hand, Non-Destructive Testing (NDT) techniques are relatively inexpensive to apply, and they can detect, localize, and characterize flaws and damage in concrete, wood and other construction material structures without leaving any undesirable discontinuities or causing damage to concrete members.

James Instruments Inc. is a leading manufacturer of non-destructive test equipment for construction materials. Specifically we design, manufacture and sell the most advanced equipment to test concrete, ceramic, wood, masonry, mortar, gypsum and other coarse grained materials. We supply the instruments that: measure strength, both compressive and tensile, locate rebar and other objects in concrete and masonry, determine density and analyze materials ultrasonically, analyze corrosion and, finally, determine moisture in concrete and other construction materials. And more. James Instruments Inc. — rugged, quality equipment for field use — backed by factory service and an ongoing program of research and development.
