Concrete Test Hammer The quality of concrete is mainly judged by its compressive strength directly affecting the load-bearing capacity and durability of concrete structures. Proceq invented the Original Schmidt and, according to the company, it is the world’s fi rst and now most widely used test hammer for analyzing the compres-sive strength of concrete properties. The Original Schmidt will hit the concrete at a defi ned energy whereas its rebound is dependent on the hardness of the concrete and is measured by the instrument. The Original Schmidt is available in models with different impact energies, each test hammer designed for a specifi c test application, in order to meet the needs of the customers to investigate a wide range Of material types and sizes, such as bridge decks, thin walls, cast stone components or small components. Proceq USA, Inc. (800) 839-7016 firstname.lastname@example.org www.proceq.com Portable 3-D Measurement Creaform has introduced the latest improvement to its inspection systems: the C-Link functionality.Through C-Link, it is possible to network up to 4 C-Tracks and operate them simultaneously with a HandyPROBE portable CMM or a MetraSCAN 3D optical CMM scanner. Benefi ts of the C-Link Func-tionality include making the inspection process of complex setups, jigs, tooling or prototypes faster and easier than ever before. Featuring the TRUaccuracy technology, it generates guaranteed high accuracy results, no matter the measurement environment (instability, vibrations, thermal variation) or operator skills; Can be used as a mobile measurement solution for complex set-ups; and Allows the creation of fi xed measurement rooms (virtual CMM with freedom of handheld probe/3D scanner).

The new model signifi cantly extends the application range of this proven, entry level food safety x-ray system. Unlike traditional foreign object x-ray detection systems, the Ezx 465 Touchless has been engineered to eliminate the shielding curtains typically used to block radiation, while still complying with all global safety standards. Heavy lead or no-lead curtains frequently prevent lightweight products such as metalized snack bags from being conveyed through the x-ray chamber, re-sulting in production line jams and downtime. The Ezx 465 Touchless X-ray system eliminates the need for shielding curtains by conveying the product through the inspection chamber via a series of small slopes. Additionally, the unit also features an aperture with reduced height to ensure that x-ray scatter does not escape from the inlet or outlet areas of the system. Thermo Fisher Scientifi c Inc. www.thermoscientifi c.com/productinspection Testing System MOCON, Inc.’s MultiCheck® 425 is a new, combination testing system for packages with one-way degassing valves. The latest instrument in the MultiCheck series measures headspace carbon dioxide (CO2) in Addition to oxygen (O2). The unit also measures leak detection, seal strength and one-way de-gassing valve performance via MOCON’s new Valve Test Unit™ (VTU). Because fi ve different tests are combined into one unit, the MultiCheck 425 system signifi cantly impacts time, labor and Samples needed to conduct individual testing. Instead of destroying fi ve different packages to conduct the same number of tests, a single package cycles through all of the tests on one unit. First the O2 and CO2 head-space analysis, followed by the pressure decay leak test, then a sealstrength burst test and fi nally the valve test which tests both the leak and the seal strength of the valve. MOCON, Inc. (763) 493-6370 www.mocon.com X-Ray System New developments in the new release version of YXLON’s universal Y. Multiplex X-ray system now make it possible to perform computed tomography for large parts too while taking advantage of state-of-the-art processes with Y.CT³. While doing so,The measurement cylinder relevant to CT can be en-larged both vertically and horizontally. This, in turn, enables the CT scanning of objects that are larger than the X-ray detector in one work step. Just like radioscopic images, in this system CT scans can be included into the programmed inspection so that any desired mixture of fl uoroscopy and CT is possible.New functions check the long-term stability of image quality fully automatically in compliance with ASTM E2737-10, thus simplifying the auditing process for the application user.
