Torsion Add On for Electromechanical Systems

Simple multi-axis testing is often necessary to test the performance of medical devices, such as bone screws, luer locks, wires, child-proof medicine bottles, and tubing. Like much of the medical device design industry, new products and materials are being used to advance the industry and often require stringent testing per ASTM and ISO standards. Some of these standards, such as ASTM F543 for testing bone screws, requires that the test is performed with both axial and torsion control. The Instron® Torsion Add-On for Electromechanical Universal Testing Systems is designed for simple, simultaneous axial and torsional testing of devices and/or components, but can be used for purely uni-axial or torsional testing. The Torsion Add-On easily mounts to any new Instron 594X or can be retrofitted in the field on existing 594X frames. The torsion drive is mounted above the machine’s crosshead and all required electronics are mounted to the single column, thus maintaining the frame’s small footprint.

Torsion Add-On for Dual Column Electromechanical Systems

Simple multi-axis testing is often necessary to test the performance of medical devices, such as bone screws, luer locks, wires, child-proof medicine bottles, and tubing.

The Torsion Add-On easily mounts to any new Instron 596X or can be retrofitted in the field on existing 596X frames. The torsion drive is mounted above the machine’s crosshead and all required electronics are mounted to one of the columns, thus maintaining the frame’s footprint.

BioBox POD

Within the medical device industry, regulatory agencies often test internally-based devices and implants in a physiological state. The Instron® BioBox meets the growing trend of testing actual medical devices and biomaterials at body temperature (37°С). For large or long devices, testing in а liquid may not bе practical. As an alternative, testing inside а controlled air environment at body temperature provides а powerful solution. The BioBox can bе incorporated as а standard item on а new single column frame or in selected models already in operation. This bох permits the full travel test of sutures, catheter tubings, latex gloves, and а wide variety of other devices and biomaterials at physiologically relevant temperatures.
