Mecmesin has launched their series of hand held force and torque gauges based on the new Vector Operating System. The Vector OS offers unparalleled flexibility in operation of the new Force and Torque gauges, with high resolution and internal sampling rate. Please check out the new Mecmesin VFG Force Gauge and the Mecmesin VTG Tornado Closure Torque Tester.
Since its inception, Mecmesin has been on the forefront of technology with hand-held force gauges, bringing out the first model with fully integrated mechanical load cell overload protection, the first to integrate bi-directional digital communication and the first to introduce feedback control to motor control test stands – to name a few. The new Vector OS is providing Mecmesin with a springboard into complete new fields of operation that are not possible with conventional Force and Torque gauges. We are very excited about this new development which cements Mecmesin’s global market leading position.
We would like to take this opportunity to congratulate Mecmesin and in particular Dr. Patrick Collins and his Product Development team for truly bringing hand held Force and Torque gauges to a new level.

Mecmesin has just released a new video promoting their automated solution for testing the Break Loose and Glide Force for Syringes, which was developed for BD, the largest global manufacturer of syringes. This can be viewed here.

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.”
