StrainScope Annealing Tester

The new version of the StrainScope Annealing Tester for fast and objective measurement of residual stresses in container glass and tableware offers a completely redesigned, compact housing, simplified handling and improved optics with a higher spatial resolution. Even in modern glass factories, residual stresses after the cooling process are still visually monitored with simple strain testers. Read more about StrainScope Annealing Tester[…]

StrainScope Cord Tester

The new version of the StrainScope Cord Tester for fast and objective measurement of cord stresses in container glass offers a completely redesigned, compact housing, simplified handling and improved optics with a higher spatial resolution. The fracture strength of glass is strongly determined by internal mechanical stresses. An inhomogeneous glass composition leads to so-called cord stresses, which Read more about StrainScope Cord Tester[…]

Component Design: Competitive Advantage through Stress Analysis

Components are subject to multi-axial loadings. The typical design approach is based on material specific modelling and suitable tests to identify the parameters of the model. The tests are costly and time consuming. Scientists at the Fraunhofer Institute for Structural Durability and System Reliability LBF have suggested a basic approach to select the necessary tests Read more about Component Design: Competitive Advantage through Stress Analysis[…]
