ADMET™ Unveils Gauge Buster Toughness Meter

Norwood, Mass.-based integrated materials testing systems provider ADMET Inc. has designed its Gauge Buster Toughness Meter to replace manual dial gauge or pen recorder-based textile testing systems. The device calculates breaking strength, tenacity and toughness; chord and initial modulus; elongation at break; and tearing strength of fibers, yarns and fabrics.

Upon test completion, the device displays computed results including load, elongation and elongation rate, which can be downloaded to a remote computer. The software-programmable calibration exceeds ASTM International E4 requirements, and is password-protected and stored in permanent nonvolatile memory. Available as an upgrade package for new or existing tensile machines, the device comprises the Toughness Meter, a linear encoder for elongation measurement and Microsoft Windows® communications software.
