NORWOOD, MA—ADMET Inc. is expanding its electro-mechanical and hydraulic testing machine retrofit business. ADMET retrofits enable laboratories, manufacturers and other organizations that test metals, plastics, textiles or other materials to perform new tests that cannot presently be handled by older machines while providing more sophisticated and integrated results reporting.

ADMET can upgrade virtually any system, including equipment from ATS, Baldwin, Instron, MTS, Riehle, Satec, Shimadzu, Tinius Olsen and United.

“Most load frames are built to last,” says Richard Gedney, ADMET’s founder and president. “They do not wear out, even after 50 years. However, we have experienced monumental changes in software tools, microprocessors, op-amps and analog-to-digital converters since the early 1990s. The essence of a retrofit is to replace the brain of the machine with one that includes the latest in software and hardware technology.”
