Essentials of Grip & Fixture Selection

On-demand (stream event when it suits you)
Moses Da Rocha

The accuracy of instrument itself- though important, is only one piece of the measurement accuracy puzzle. Grip and fixture selection plays a critical role in the applications in Force and Materials quality testing. The critical elements of repeatability and consistency are bolstered by grips and fixtures that ensure:

  •  That the sample does not slip
  •  The sample does not move, wiggle, shake or wobble during the test
  •  That all operators fixture the sample the exact same way

This 2-part Webinar will focus on the importance grip and fixture selection has on your test results, as well as some of the most commonly used grips and fixtures and applications they’re used in. Understanding what grip or fixture to use and why is critical to getting the most accurate measurements. We’ll also briefly touch on custom and 3D printed grips & fixtures.

Fundamentals of Texture Testing Analysis

Webinar (online scheduled streaming event)

The primary goal for using instrumentation to measure texture is to capture an objective value to something that is typically evaluated very subjectively. Texture cannot be controlled unless it measured in a consistent and repeatable manner.
