May 28, 2009

NORWOOD, MA-Instron, provider of testing equipment solutions designed to evaluate mechanical properties of materials and components, has added an online technical resource.

The testing solutions section of Instron’s Web site (www.instron.com) now has content to help answer materials testing questions, searchable by standard, material or industry. The database of more than 135 solutions consists of content that walks the user through the test process, related testing tips and recommendations.

The site includes images of test setups and sample test curves. Additionally, the section incorporates PDFs of associated literature, as well as links to ASTM, ISO and other international standards.

“Our solutions are based on questions from our customers,” says Patricia Hartzell, Instron global marketing communications manager. “A great feature about this new section is we have the capability to tailor it to what our customers are asking. If a customer poses a new question, we can post the solution on our site quickly.”
