The world of materials science is so vast and encompasses the broadest range of industries, materials, and challenges that no one person can possibly possess all the knowledge required to be the resident expert – or master of materials science. It takes a small army behind the scenes collaborating and sharing technical know-how, experiences, and ideas to present the most accurate, relevant, and timely information to you – our readers.

Major Platform Extensions to Bluehill® 3

This is a release we and many of our customers have been waiting for. With release 3.51, lab managers can finally standardize on Bluehill® 3 for all their static tests across all our current static (Electromechanical, Static Hydraulic) and dynamic testing machines (Servo Hydraulic and ElectroPuls systems). Starting with 3.51, Bluehill® 3 can also be used to set up and run torsion tests on the MT Torsion line of testers. Apart from the platform extensions, this release also has some nice enhancements geared towards high temperature applications and metals testing.
