The Tinius Olsen Testing Machine Company has been providing materials testing systems to the manufacturing industry for over 135 years, pulling, pushing, squeezing, bursting and twisting packaging materials, enclosures, and packaging devices to accurately quantify strength, performance and quality. Using the data from a Tinius Olsen testing system QC Mangers and their teams are able to monitor, prove and maintain the quality of their products, be it tapes, adhesives, plastic film, metal foil, bottles, enclosures, bags and devices.
The key business needs; Efficiency, immediate feedback of test results to the production team and traceability are all met by the new Tinius Olsen automated materials testing platform. The item to be tested is passed automatically into the Testing Cell, then handled by a six axis robot, it can be dimensional checked, loaded into the tensile testing machine and tested. Immediately post-test the Pass/Fail status is reported, and the robot sorts and ejects the tested item. On average this process wins back 130 man hours a year for a business, a conservative figure which can be further improved by adding more than one test measurement station into the system.
By networking the Horizon software and using industrial camera technology monitoring of the testing cell and results can be done across a network, shared with manufacturing and even verified by the management team over a smart phone any time of the day. The whole process is calibrated, traceable and certified in support of your business and product requirements.
The production of your packaging materials and products is automated, why not you’re testing capability?
