Testing for safer suspension systems

Many civil engineering and transportation projects require devices that can dampen vibrations and absorb shocks. Spring mechanisms can be used for this purpose and are commonly found in applications ranging from high-rise buildings to car suspension systems. Railway carriages, for example, have spring damper systems placed betw...

Demonstrating building material safety

The safety and stability of buildings, bridges, and wind turbines relies on having confidence in the strength of the construction materials used. At the same time, materials are subject to cost and design constraints, which introduce the need for performance testing using similar loads to those likely to be experienced in-servi...

Better industrial insulation materials

Many production industries, such as steel and glass manufacture and petrochemical refining, run processes at high temperatures, requiring high energy consumption. Insulation materials are needed to minimise heat loss throughout the system. All such materials need certification to confirm their insulation properties. Certificat...

Improving biofuel moisture assessments

Wood chips produced from sustainable forestry are a carbon neutral source of energy for district heating and other biofuel power generation plants. Denmark is embracing this approach and aims for woody biomass to supply 100 % of district heating by 2035, as part of its goal to be independent of fossil fuels by 2050. Wood type ...

Accuracy for moisture measurements

Measuring the moisture of many different products, such as pulp, board and paper, is vital for manufacturing a quality product. Moisture content in paper effects ink uptake during printing, whilst in the production process drying consumes large amounts of energy. Paper industry products are commonly sold by weight, and therefor...

Precision robotic movements

Precision manufacturing industries, such as aerospace, mechanical engineering, and automotive all rely on automation to produce quality products. Industrial robots making complex movements in 3D follow engineering designs to manufacture and assemble parts on the production line. Robots are fitted with angle encoders, devices u...
