Dia-Stron (Broomall, Pa., USA) is featuring at CAMX its integrated measurement systems for single fibers and filaments. The technology uses a combined laser diffraction and high-resolution extensometer measurement system (LDS/LEX) that combines measurement integration, precision and automation. Dia-Stron notes that diameter measurement is an essential parameter in mechanical testing of fibers, and the Dia-Stron system incorporates a high-resolution laser diffraction system with the linear extensometer force measurement unit - collecting dimensional and mechanical data in a single operation The integrated measurement system is then combined with Dia-Stron’s automated sample loading module that transports the samples from the loading cassettes to the measurement module. Dia-Stron also supplies handling devices and loading cassettes to improve productivity and reduce sample loss. Dia-Stron also produces modules for fiber bending, fatigue and torsion.
