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.

Increase Efficiency Without Sacrificing Safety

An Instron geotextile customer was conducting materials testing nearly around the clock. They were not able to keep up with demand and were building another plant to respond to the market. The company had a positive experience with their current Instron testing system and wanted to invest in another for the new plant, but with shorter test intervals.

An Introduction to Digital Image Correlation

The benefits of Digital Image Correlation (DIC) include measuring strain without requiring physical contact, viewing full-field data (like thousands of tiny extensometers), and not needing to know where to place the strain gauge/extensometer before a test starts. The following presentation gives an introduction to this optical technique.
