AT2 Automated XY Stage on 68SC




AT2 AUTOMATED XY STAGE

Automated Compression, Tensile, and Flexure Testing

The AT2 Automated XY Stage can be installed on any new or existing 5900 and 6800 Series universal testing systems to automate compression, tensile, and flexure testing of devices or components with multiple test points, or multiple components with repetitive test points. These systems are widely adopted in the biomedical and electronics industries to test a wide range of materials, devices, and components.

Glass Vial Testing with AT2 Automated XY Stage


Within industries such as the medical device industry, many components, sub-assemblies, or end products have multiple elements, like leads, that need to be tested independently of one another. Using the Automated XY Stage System, the specimen is automatically relocated so that each element can be tested without having to re-install the specimen. Additionally, when initial alignment is critical for successful testing, the XY Stage Testing System provides the ability for repeatable and quick results, including applications like insertion and withdrawal testing or precision bend testing. The flexibility of the Automated XY Stage allows it to adapt for testing of many specimens, devices, or components.


Application Range

  • Type of loading: compression, tensile, flex
  • Biomedical: syringes, vials, pharmaceutical pills, springs
  • Electronics: keypads, touch-capable displays, small electronics

AUTOMATION ADVANTAGES

Increased Throughput

An automated testing system tests multiple specimens without operator intervention. This reduces the overall test time for a sample, allowing data used for product development and production to be provided more quickly.

Increased Repeatability

Automated systems reduce operator influence over test results, allowing more consistent and repeatable results. This is especially helpful for organizations using multiple operators in multiple labs.

Better Use of Skilled Labor

An automated testing system runs unattended, generating results while skilled operators improve their efficiency by focusing on other important tasks.

Improved Safety and Ergonomics

Automated testing minimizes repetitive motion and reduces the amount of physical interaction with the testing system, reducing operator injuries.




Automated XY Stage Integrated with Bluehill Universal



Bluehill® Universal Integration
Seamless Control of the XY Stage Movements




XY Stage Movement

Using Bluehill Universal, you can easily move the XY Stage into various positions for specimen set up and test location identification.
 



Sequence Builder

Build a sequence of test locations in Bluehill Universal using grid or diamond patterns, or create a custom sequence to test components where the distance between test locations varies.
