Welcome to our new Instron Community Blog hosted by Instron. It is a compilation of the freshest, brightest, most-talented minds that Instron has to offer. The world of materials science is so vast and encompasses the broadest range of industries, materials, and challenges that no one person can possibly possess all the knowledge required to be the resident expert – or master of materials science. It takes a small army behind the scenes collaborating and sharing technical know-how, experiences, and ideas to present the most accurate, relevant, and timely information to you – our readers.
We invite you to tell us who you are, share your stories and talk about your experiences. Join the Instron Community.
Working alongside our friends at AZOM, they developed a series of engaging interviews with a few of our global colleagues.

Implants and the materials used for their production undergo extensive tests, which include the evaluation of the static and dynamic mechanical properties of the raw materials, components, and systems. Many of these tests are internationally standardized; other testing procedures are specific to a given application. In all cases, advanced testing instruments and clamping fixtures along with flexible, programmable testing software help in the determination and analysis of the relevant data.
