Instron, a provider of testing equipment designed to evaluate the mechanical properties of materials and components, offers a completely redesigned TestProfiler functionality in Bluehill 3 Software.
 
The new TestProfiler offers unprecedented flexibility in setting up automated product reliability tests that mimic the functional use of the product being tested.
 
With this release of Bluehill 3, product design and value engineering teams can use Instron electromechanical testing solutions to accelerate their verification and validation processes and bring better products to market faster.
 
The TestProfiler feature in Bluehill 3 allows for easy setup of tests that require: 
 
– Repetitive cycles for component quality testing commonly used with customers testing foam and spring, or performing proof-loading tests.
– Step-by-step loading patterns to mimic functional use of medical devices and consumer electronics products
– Ability to build test flow logic by monitoring and responding to internal and external sensors and digital states
– Tests with simultaneous temperature control of the specimen using select Instron chamber and furnace products.
