Historically, the properties of any new material have had to be determined empirically. It can take many years to transition a material from discovery to a commercial product, which is too slow, given the range of urgent problems that advanced materials can help us solve.

I find it difficult to walk down the street, or in the mall, without having to move out of the way to avoid bumping into someone who is looking down at their phone - either playing games, sending a message, or watching a video. And during seminars, I notice that more and more attendees are not only bringing their laptops and smartphones, but also have in their bags a touchpad. Technology is evolving and conveniently giving us the world at our fingertips ....

Last week, we introduced a little bit of history into our blog by discussing the need to develop a testing instrument that could accurately test the new thermoplastic material of parachutes back in the 1940's .... Below, we finish the conversation by talking about the technology developed more than 50 years ago.

Not too long ago, Joe Amaral presented at the ASTM week on the creation of testing systems and how Instron came to be. Taking his generous synopsis, I've broken it down into 2 parts. We'd enjoy hearing from you and your first experience testing on a system.

Can you imagine playing tennis with a heavy wooden racquet? Well, back in the 14th century, when the first tennis racquets were used, this is exactly what players had to use. With a limited “sweet spot” and a heavier weight overall, these racquets were cumbersome to use
