Supply and Commission an Axial / Torsional Testing System
Show close time for other time zones
The Therapeutic Goods Administration (TGA) requires from suitably qualified and experienced providers an Axial/Torsional Testing System to support the mechanical testing of medical devices.
Biomaterials and Engineering Section requires a configurable and customisable electromechanical or servo-hydraulic system for axial/torsional testing of metals, polymers, wood, fibres & textiles, adhesives & coatings and foams. The section evaluates the mechanical/physical properties of a large variety of medical devices to evaluate tensile & compressive strength, bending/flexural strength, adhesion/peel properties, tear, puncture, torsional /shear strength, ductility and deflection.
The proposed system requires:
- testing in torsion and tension individually and concurrently,
extensometers and sensors for measuring extension and deflection of different material types and specimen dimensions and product geometries,
the ability to reconfigure the testing set-up through the addition, replacement, or repositioning of grips and mounts for different medical device product groups, and
software that allows for the customisation of testing protocols to ensure future testing needs are satisfied. Addition of APIs for customised control of the instrument is desired.
