Medical Device Testing uses Bose SmartTest® Series servopneumatic instruments for a variety of medium force, low frequency tests. They are capable of loads as high as 12.5 kN and have been used in applications that run to 10 Hz. Various test fixture designs for the SmartTest® servopneumatics can accommodate multiple samples. The instruments can be operated in either displacement or load control. For multi-specimen applications, transducers for monitoring each specimen can be added to provide individual data collection.
Typical test applications for the SmartTest® Instruments include:
|Model||Max Static Load||Max Frequency||Max Stroke|
|SP1250||5.6kN (1250lb)||10 Hz||+/- 25.4mm (1.0 in)|
|SP2800||12.5kN (2800lb)||10 Hz||+/- 25.4mm (1.0 in)|
Environmental control for SmartTest® Instruments:
Most tests require a controlled temperature and/or saline environment. MDT Services has chambers for testing in both air and saline at temperatures to 37°C utilizing various baths, enclosures, special fixturing and heating/circulation systems.
