System Integration and

Automated Systems

At Tinius Olsen we have taken a fresh look at how our customers use materials testing machines and software to meet their specific needs in today’s commercial environment. Accuracy, resolution, data rates, control, precise adherence to test standards, calibration, measurement of uncertainty and traceability are all essential parameters tuned to the highest standards and capabilities in Tinius Olsen testing machines and software. We can configure an automated system to match your exact requirements, saving time and making you money.

Horizon Software
Managing, controlling, reporting, delivering test results immediately and straight to your process where they are needed. 

Specimen feed and handling
Implemented to meet your need, your volume, including separation and classification of spent specimen’s post test.

Bar code reader
Reading in batch and test specimen details passing these to the test method, report output and results data base.

Specimen measurement
Be it width, thickness or depth of notch, multiple measurements are taken, averaged and passed to the test method and reporting output

Pass/Fail alert
Your Pass/Fail criteria established on each and every result means the instant the test is complete a result not meeting the criteria is flagged alerting the persons responsible

Testing Machine
Automate one testing process or multiple, check tensile and hardness or tensile and flexural or Charpy and Izod in the same automated “Cell”

Digital Results Output Package
Results, graphs, video* delivered to the teams that need it available at their works stations on their PC’s, stored for recall and back up, wrapped with suitable traceability details in support of compliance.

System Cell
Built to accommodate your testing system be it housing a single machine or multiple machines, tensile, compression, flexural, impact, hardness, melt flow. The cell is impact resistant and transparent; it is interlocked with user and service password modes of entry.

System monitoring and alert
Digital and video monitoring 24 hours a day. The system monitors all aspects of its movement, measurement, control and performance parameters, updating its log, alerting if errors occur, and advising in support of planned maintenance.

* Videos extensometer is required for video capabilities.


Generating the Required Data

Tinius Olsen automated materials testing systems are designed with ambition for ambition, for those who are clear on making a focused investment to get a step change in productivity in the test lab to match the performance of their manufacturing or processes capability, delivering test results instantaneously post test to the teams that need them. Results reported in accordance with the relevant test standard be it ISO, ASTM, JIS, GB or GOST standard.

Results which are repeatable and traceable and within the prescribed measurement of uncertainty budget. Results supported by graphs and where appropriate pictures and video, be it the image of a hardness indent or the classification of an impact break type or a clip within which the high resolution tensile strain data is embedded. In short an output package delivered efficiently to where it is needed, proof of your material or components performance.


Materials and Standards

If you have a need for routine repeatable testing on materials, components or devices, whether 30 specimens a day or over 1000, you should consider investing in automation to get a step change improvement in productivity. Through its proactive input in developing international standards Tinius Olsen can show compliance with relevant ASTM, ISO, JIS, GB standards meeting both your strategic and compliance needs.
