RheinTacho is pleased to announce the release of the Pocket LED Stroboscope with Laser trigger. The new RT STROBE pocket LED LASER is the further development of the current portable stroboscopes RT STROBE pocketLED. This portable stroboscope is extended by the innovative auto-sync laser function as well as by the additional application possibilities of a laser-tachometer.

Within the stroboscope mode, the portable multifunction device flashes with up to 999,999 flashes per minute and belongs to the best-performing devices of its class. The quartz accuracy ensures absolute flash precision. 6 extremely bright LEDs ensure an exceptional illumination area. By means of a reflective laser beam, The RT STROBE pocketLED LASER offers the possibility to determine the flash rate almost automatically and thus let moving parts appear optically “frozen”. If you only want to measure the revolutions, you can also use the stroboscope as a laser tachometer with disabled flash function.

The ergonomically and functionally optimized housing with integrated protective holster fulfils the requirements of protection class IP65. This means the RT STROBE pocketLED LASER is extremely well protected against dust and water jets and thus perfectly suitable for use in rough industrial environments.

We are pleased to announce the partnership between SI Instruments and InnovaTest Europe BV. Innovatest designs, develops and manufactures a wide range of hardness testing instrumentation for metals. Located in Maastricht, in the south of the Netherlands, close to the technical Universities of Aachen and Eindhoven as well as the Zuyd University of Applied Science in Maastricht. 
It’s here where new designs, new technologies and state-of-the-art firmware and video indent measuring systems for hardness testing machines find their roots.

A team of mechanical, electronic and software specialists are working continuously to develop new products that simplify hardness testing procedures or make an even better fit to user requirements. The InnovaTech R&D team develops and designs its own hardware and firmware applications. The R&D team also focuses on customised solutions, allowing the user to specify a hardness tester that fits perfectly for a particular job. 

Mr. Roland Engbersen, MD of InnovaTest says: “While our history within the industry goes back as far as 1890, our focus on technology and progress in the hardness testing industry has significantly evolved in the past decades. Recognised and trusted by scientist, engineers, laboratories and the general metal and plastics industry worldwide, INNOVATEST products and services for hardness testing procedures are continuously setting new boundaries.

Test and product development professionals rely on INNOVATEST to create and optimize their designs. Around the world, test engineers in laboratories recognize our highly efficient hardness testing machines and software to be used for a wide range of components and materials. Whether your need is to evaluate advanced components made of steel, alloys or plastic, used for commercial transportation vehicles, air-and space crafts, bridges, or buildings, orthopaedic or dental labs, or you want to secure testing procedures for standard production parts or in-line testing, INNOVATEST hardness testing solutions make possible many of the innovations required by the fast changing world around us.

Our presence around the world supports customers with sophisticated supply chain management to obtain really comparable testing results, regardless of the location. For the most demanding professionals and laboratories, our new range of standardizing or reference hardness testers are no longer exotic products, but just a part of our general supply range.

We are very pleased to partner with SI Instruments. The technical expertise and support SI Instruments can offer our products in the Australian and New Zealand markets makes it a perfect match for both companies.”

Mecmesin is proud to announce the achievement of Accreditation to ISO 9001:2015. This is an important milestone in the continuing growth and success of Mecmesin as certification demonstrates the commitment to providing the highest levels of quality and service to customers and distributors.

Mecmesin Ltd ISO9001 2015 Accreditation is proof of this commitment, and signifies that Mecmesin have met the rigorous requirements of this international standard. Mr. John Page, Managing Director of Mecmesin, says : “We are proud to have met the challenge of certification, and intend to consistently uphold the principles of continuous improvement and customer satisfaction.”
Mecmesin, through its Australian distributor SI Instruments, has launched the first of a new generation of Universal Testers, with a focus on precision control. Its positional resolution of 0.001 mm means the MultiTest-dV offers unparalleled control even for the most affordable entry-level systems.
Sophisticated control electronics lie behind its unassuming and stylish control panel, comprising just four multifunctional operating buttons, a clear, bright colour display, and Mecmesin’s unique precision control wheel. The versatile wheel itself enables ultra-fine crosshead control, and rapid crosshead repositioning, whilst doubling up for changing machine settings of speed, set positions, and test type and parameters. The wheel is surrounded by coloured LED lights that indicate the test stand status at all times.
Select one of four test modes, and dial in speed and displacement in either or both directions, plus test cycling requirements, and connect a Mecmesin Advanced Force Gauge (AFG) for load limit control. Test speed is continuously variable from 0.1 mm/min to 1200 mm/min, with a resolution of 0.1 mm/min and an accuracy of ±0.2% of indicated speed.
Three models are rated at 0.5 kN, 1 kN and 2.5 kN respectively. The 0.5 kN and 1 kN models have extended columns for highly-elastic sample testing, and all three accept Mecmesin’s range of digital Advanced Force Gauges. With an extensive range of standard grips and fixtures, the MultiTest-dV is a robust and versatile testing platform for a wide range of routine testing.

Suitable for:

•compressive bend

•tensile testing

•top-load

•insertion/withdrawal

•peel/adhesion

•pull-off

•puncture
The complete range of Mecmesin Closure Torque Testers is available in Australia and New Zealand through SI Instruments.

Closure Torque Testing is a measure of the torque force required to either apply or remove a cap or lid on a container. This is frequently a two stage measurement. If the cap is tamper- evident: slip torque and bridge torque is measured. If the closure is child-resistant, a concurrent measure of downward load applied must also be made. Correct performance of container closures is always quality-critical, and in many cases it is safety-critical.

Benefits of Closure Torque Testing include:
• Ensuring the proper functioning of closures e.g. openability
• Ensuring the integrity and safety of products
• Reducing material costs and achieving lean manufacturing goals
• Compliance with industry standards
