Instron has pioneered many of the significant developments in the materials testing industry since being founded in 1946 by two research scientists. With investment in research and development, we have produced a number of materials testing innovations from the first strain gauge load cell to all-electric dynamic systems to video extensometry. Our ambition to continually innovate and develop new products is driven by the engineering and technical expertise of our experienced employees designing systems and accessories with our core philosophy of data integrity, safety and protection of investment in mind.
Today, Instron offers some of the highest-quality and most accurate testing equipment on the market with product lines that cover a wide range of mechanical testing needs from tension testing to complex service life simulation. Our goal is to provide our customers with the best ownership experience by delivering the highest quality products, accessories, and software that offer accurate and reliable test results, time savings, and the flexibility that is necessary for the industry’s ever-changing demands.

Dynamic Systems manufactures the Gleeble® line of thermal-mechanical physical simulators. Samples of material are heated and mechanically worked while performance parameters are measured and analyzed, providing a cost effective way to physically simulate high temperature processes and applications at a far lower cost than full scale tests.
Process simulation capabilities include: Hot Rolling, Continuous Casting, Recrystallization, Weld HAZ Cycles, Butt Welding, Diffusion Bonding, Mushy Zone Processing, Forging, Extrusion, Continuous Strip Annealing, Heat Treating, Quenching and more.

Asahi Spectra Co. (ASC) was founded in 1970 in Tokyo, Japan by 3 engineers. ASC has been developing a vacuum deposition technology such as ion assisted deposition (IAD) and ion beam sputtering (IBS) , which achieve hard coating, excellent durability for environment (humidity, low or high temperature, thermal shock or vacuum) and stability of spectral performance. By now our optical filters have contributed in various markets such as astronomy, semiconductor, biotechnology, education and so on.
Nowadays, customer requirements are becoming more complicated as optical innovation advances, and most requirements cannot be satisfied by just optical filter technology. So we have been trying to expand our field to optical instruments based on our 40 years accumulated optical know-how as you can see how professional our optical instruments are.
Our integrated manufacturing process by both filter and instrument specialists is the most competitive advantage against “other only-optical-filter makers”.
