Name: Waterjet 5 Axis
Description:

The ultrahigh-pressure (UHP) pump technology used to create high-velocity waterjets was developed in the 1970s. Water is pumped at pressures up to 90,000 psi and expelled through a sapphire orifice to form a fine, coherent cutting jet. At this pressure, the water is traveling at about 4,000 feet/second when it emerges from the orifice. Waterjets typically have diameters from 0.003 to 0.020 inch, requiring 2 to 90 Hp at 55,000 psi. Waterjets are generally used without the addition of abrasives to cut only soft materials such as food, paper products, cloth, leather, wood, fiberglass, and some aerospace composites. It is a valued technology in many applications due to the fact that it is easily automated and because of its ability to cut very thin kerf widths with little material loss.

Name: Varian UV-Visible spectrophotometer
Description:

A benchtop spectrophotometer, used to make UV-visible absorbance measurements to quantify related characteristics of a solution, designed for research-grade analyses of biological or highly absorbing samples.

The Varian Cary 300 is a double beam instrument that allows the recording of real-time baseline corrections. Also, it is also possible to operate the instruments in single beam, double beam, or dual-single beam modes. A phase locked wavelength drive prevents peak shifts and peak suppression at high scan speeds. Double choppers ensure that the sample and reference beam strike the detector at the same point, removing any potential errors caused by nonuniformity of the detector. Variable slits allow optimum control over data resolution. Quartz overcoating protects the optics from the environment and allows cleaning without damage to reflective surfaces.

Name: Spark Eroder
Description:

Agie Spark Eroder Electric discharge machining (EDM), sometimes colloquially also referred to as spark machining, spark eroding, burning, die sinking or wire erosion, is a manufacturing process whereby a desired shape is obtained using electrical discharges (sparks). Material is removed from the workpiece by a series of rapidly recurring current discharges between two electrodes, separated by a dielectric liquid and subject to an electric voltage. One of the electrodes is called the tool-electrode, or simply the ‘tool’ or ‘electrode’, while the other is called the workpiece-electrode, or ‘workpiece’. When the distance between the two electrodes is reduced, the intensity of the electric field in the volume between the electrodes becomes greater than the strength of the dielectric (at least in some point(s)), which breaks, allowing current to flow between the two electrodes. This phenomenon is the same as the breakdown of a capacitor (condenser) (see also breakdown voltage). As a result, material is removed from both the electrodes. Once the current flow stops (or it is stopped – depending on the type of generator), new liquid dielectric is usually conveyed into the inter-electrode volume enabling the solid particles (debris) to be carried away and the insulating properties of the dielectric to be restored. Adding new liquid dielectric in the inter-electrode volume is commonly referred to as flushing. Also, after a current flow, a difference of potential between the two electrodes is restored to what it was before the breakdown, so that a new liquid dielectric breakdown can occur.

Name: NMR Spectrometer
Description:

The Bruker Avance MSL200 spectrometer operates at 200 MHz or 4.7 Tesla. It comprises a magnet, a console and the computer. It is used for high-resolution solid-state 50 MHz 13C NMR analyses and high-temperature 1H NMR analyses. The solid-state 13C NMR analyses are carried out using two probes, namely a 4 mm Bruker probe and a 7 mm Bruker probe, both operating with magic angle spinning (MAS). Cross polarisation (CP) and single pulse excitation (SPE) pulse sequences are used in conjunction with MAS. The samples are packed tight into a cylindrical (7 mm o.d.) zirconia rotor with a cap made of a homopolymer of chlorotrifluoroethene (Kel-F) and spun at the magic angle (5444’) with a spinning rate of approximately 5 kHz. Tetrakis(trimethylsilyl)silane (TKS) can be added to the samples as an internal standard. The amount of sample required for the test must be higher than 0.3 g (4 mm probe). A Doty Scientific 200 MHz 1H NMR probe is used to determine fluidity development in solid samples as a function of temperature. This probe can operate at temperatures up to 500°C and the amount of sample required must be higher than 0.1 g. A flow of 35 L/min dry nitrogen is used to transfer heat to the sample and to remove the volatiles that escape from the ceramic sample container. The sample temperature is monitored using a thermocouple in direct contact with the sample container. The solid echo pulse sequence (90o -  - 90o) is used to acquire the data. The spectra obtained are deconvoluted into Gaussian and Lorentzian distribution functions, which enables the calculation of the fraction of total hydrogen that is mobile and its mobility (T2L). The higher the concentration and mobility of the fluid phase the higher the fluidity.

Name: Keyence Microscope
Description:

° All-in-one, ultra-high definition hand-held camera Observation can be performed without placing the target on the stage or breaking, cutting, or processing the target. With built-in features including an ultra-high definition CCD camera, high-intensity halogen lamp, image-processing circuit, hard disk drive, and CD-R/RW drive, the all-in-one design of the VHX-100 integrates ""observation"", ""recording"" and ""measuring"" functions.

° Maximum 18 million pixels-4 types of high-definition images selectable for your purpose The microscopic movement of the actuator is capable of shifting the 2.11 million-pixel CCD (pixel-shift function). You can select from four options for the number of pixels (18 million/8 million/4 million/2.11 million) according to the observation purpose.

° Digital focusing (Depth composition) function When a conventional microscope is used for observing a target with large projections and depressions, only part of the target can be brought into focus because of the shallow depth of-field. The VHX-100 features extensive depth composition functions to provide an image with overall focus by composing and superimposing images captured at different focus positions. The VHX-100 is packed with digital focusing functions using industry-first technologies. These functions include ""Quick depth composition"" enabling instant composition, ""High-quality depth composition"" ensuring highly accurate images, and the ""3-D display function"" enabling the 3-D display of the composition data.

Name: Rheometric Scientific Rheometer
Description:

The Rheometrics RDA-III high-torque controlled-strain rheometer uses either serrated or smooth parallel plates of 25 mm in diameter. For a usual test, disks of approximately 1 mm thickness are analysed. The compression force can be varied during the test to allow measuring the expansion and contraction of the sample. On the contrary, the plate gap can be kept constant to record the force. The furnace surrounding the sample can be purged with a constant flow of N2 for pyrolysis tests or air for combustion tests. Standard tests such as dynamic temperature ramp tests, strain sweep tests and frequency sweep tests can be carried out in the samples. The maximum operating temperature is 600°C. The storage modulus (G'), the loss modulus (G), the complex viscosity (η*), the phase angle (δ) and the change in plate gap (ΔL) can be recorded. The rheometer can analyse viscoelastic materials, with predominantly solid-like behaviour such as coal, biomass and polymers. It cannot analyse liquids as the viscosity in these materials is too low for the detection limits of the rheometer.

Name: Hurco
Description:

Hurco 4 axis Miller for general machining jobs such as milling / drilling / tapping of various materials.The VM has the smallest footprint in the industry with surprisingly large work cubes and travels. The work cube is even better because the swing-arm ATC is out of the way and doesn’t interfere. The low base price makes the VM Series the most reasonably priced machining centre in its class. An advanced control system with robust conversational and NC programming tools provide the shop with options on how best to approach a particular part and numerous other process automation software options to get the fastest cut with the best quality. Options and accessories (both hardware and software) are easily “plug and play,” so they can be added to the VM machines at any time. Buy only the options you need at the beginning and then select options as needs change. With the latest technology and automation, the VM series is a great replacement for older VMCs and knee/bed mills. Combined with a Hurco lathe, it’s a very cost-effective solution to expensive mill-turn machines. It’s two independent machines for the price of one mill-turn and the VM Series has far greater capacity. Hurco products are UL, CSA, NFPA 79 independently certified, with CE certification.

Name: Gas pycnometer
Description:

Gas pycnometry is a common analytical technique that uses a gas displacement method to measure volume accurately. Inert gases, such as helium or nitrogen, are used as the displacement medium. The sample is sealed in the instrument compartment of known volume, the appropriate inert gas is admitted, and then expanded into another precision internal volume. The pressure before and after expansion is measured and used to compute the sample volume. Dividing this volume into the sample weight gives the gas displacement density.

The AccuPyc II 1340 Series Pycnometers are fast, fully automatic pycnometers that provide high-speed, high-precision volume measurements and density calculations on a wide variety of powders, solids, and slurries having volumes from 0.01 to 350 cm3.

The instrument completes most sample analyses in less than three minutes with excellent accuracy. After analyses are started with a few keystrokes, data are collected, calculations are performed, and results displayed without further operator intervention.

Name: DIC system
Description:

Summary of system

Digital image correlation (DIC) is a technique for full-field displacement and strain measurement. It relies on the specimen being treated (via paint spray, printing, transfers etc.) with a stochastic (random) speckle pattern; this pattern is then photographed with one or more digital cameras before and after the specimen is loaded, and a map of the displacement of the pattern from one image to the next is measured using postprocessing software which correlates the new image with the original one. The displacement field is then differentiated with respect to spatial position to obtain a map of strain. If only a single camera is used, displacements can only be measured in-plane (and out-of-plane displacements are recorded as spurious in-plane strains). If a pair of cameras is used, full 3D displacement data can be captured and compensation made for out-of-plane displacements. Displacements of a small fraction of a pixel can be detected. The strain sensitivity of DIC is dependent on the resolution of the camera but is independent of the overall field of view. There is a trade-off between spatial resolution and strain resolution, so small strains (in the order of 100 microstrain) can be measured with poor spatial resolution, but greater spatial resolution can only be achieved reliably when measuring larger strains (in the order of thousands of microstrain). There is no practical upper limit on the strains which can be measured over several loading steps). DIC is therefore well suited to large strains (in the plastic region, for example) but less well suited to measuring small elastic strains. The field of view goes from around 20mm x 20mm upwards, with no practical limitation (though very large or very small applications would require additional calibration targets).

Apparatus

CAMERA has purchased a Dantec Q400 3D DIC system with HILIS high-intensity light source. It is equipped with laptop, two 5MB high-speed cameras which can capture images at a rate of several frames per second. However, the system is fully compatible with CAMERA’s pair of high speed cameras which can be interfaced to the system laptop via an Ethernet switch. System control and image processing takes place on a laptop computer using the ISTRA4D software. We have and additional licence for ISTRA4D; furthermore, that software can be used without restriction in “viewing mode” only. For 3D work the system includes an automatic calibration procedure involving the use of a “chessboard” target; we have targets from 30mmx30mm up to 200mmx200mm; this procedure can be used both with the 5MB and HS cameras. The system also includes analogue inputs.

Name: Fritsch Ball Mill (Wolfson Building)
Description:

Fritsch Pulverisette 5/ 4 bowl planetry Mill. Two or four grinding bowls of equivalent weight are positioned within the instrument and held firmly in place with a ‘Safe-Lock’ clamping mechanism, the lid is closed and the system is started. The grinding bowls rotate around their own axis, whilst orbiting around a central axis. Forces are exerted on the grinding balls and the sample, which are constantly changing direction and energy amount. Optimum grinding ball movements are obtained due to the design geometry and transmission ratios. The FRITSCH PULVERISETTE 5 ball mill is programmable for time, speed, pause time and reverse rotation. Each working station of the PULVERISETTE 5 has been designed to be used for one 500ml, 250ml or an 80ml-grinding bowl. When using 80ml grinding bowls, two 80ml grinding bowls are clamped in the instrument, by placing one on top of the other. If only one 80ml-grinding bowl is to be used, then a single 80ml grinding bowl adapter must be used in each milling station. This means that with the PULVERISETTE 5 model IV ball mill, which has four working stations will accommodate 4 x 500ml grinding bowls, or 4 x 250ml grinding bowls or 8 x 80ml grinding bowls. Fundamental to all ball milling is the selection of grinding material; the grinding material must be harder than the sample being prepared.

Name: Microbalance
Description:

The Cahn C31 is a very sensitive weight and force measurement instrument. It is designed for weights and forces up to 3.5 grams and is sensitive to changes as small as 0.1 micrograms. It may be described as a force-to-current converter.

OPERATION:

Weights or forces to be measured are applied to the sample side of the beam, which produces a force about the axis of rotation. An electric current flowing in the torque motor produces a force equal in magnitude but opposite in direction of the produced force. This force can be read off the digital output.

Name: X-Ray powder diffraction
Description:

The XRD equipment uses a copper radiation source to qualitatively analyse powdered samples. The resultant scans can be matched for compound or mineral name by searching a database of standard patterns. 1g to 2g of finely ground powder is loaded into a cavity mount or alternatively, if sample quantity is small, it can be mixed with acetone and pipetted onto a glass substrate. Up to 35 samples can be placed into a rack holder and each one automatically scanned (about 40 minutes per sample). This equipment is housed in a separate room so that Radiation Safety rules can be effectively met.

Name: Single Particle Optical sizer
Description:

The PSS Accusizer 780 is used for sizing spherical particles, between 0.56 – 400μm diameter. In Single particle optical sensing (SPOS), particles in liquid suspension flow through a small uniform ‘photozone’ of laser light. The particle suspension is dilute when particles pass, one at a time through the illuminated region, avoiding coincidences. The instrument achieves this using an ‘autodilution’ method, which continuously monitors the pulse rate and dilutes to ensure the particle concentration falls below the coincidence limit of the sensor before collecting data (between 7,500 and 12,500/ml for particles below 100 microns, lower for smaller particles) The passage of a particle causes a detected pulse related to the mean diameter of the particle and the physical principle modes of detection (scattering and obscuration) measured by the instrument. A particle size distribution (PSD) is constructed one particle at a time, by comparing the detected pulse heights with a saved standard calibration curve (using uniform particle sizing standards)

The technique compliments laser ensemble techniques (eg laser diffraction), which rely on conversion of a raw signal from all the size classes in a sample. This raw signal must be mathematically inverted using an appropriate algorithm to estimate the PSD. SPOS offers superior resolution for highly polydisperse distributions, and can detect large ‘off-scale’ particles lying above the main population. It is therefore more useful for characterizing the quality of a product, rather than approximate mean diameter / standard deviation.

Name: Horiba LabRAM HR
Description:

Used for the mapping of Raman signals with simtaneous confocal imaging of samples. Raman spectroscopy and microscopy provides a uniquely sensitive tool for the non-invasive identification of the chemical and physical state of a wide range of samples, rapidly providing quantifiable identification of bulk and surface species. It is a technique which is used to study the vibrational (and other low-frequency) modes in a system, typically in the range 50 – 4000 cm-1. Inelastic scattering of laser light off the sample results in a shift of the energy of the scattered photons. This shift gives information about the vibrational modes in the system. Infrared spectroscopy yields similar, but complementary, information.

The LabRAM HR system can be used as a traditional Raman spectrometer to provide vibrational spectra of chemicals, but the most powerful feature of this instrument is its ability to quickly produce confocal images. Four different laser wavelengths are available spanning the UV-Visible-NIR regions giving the user access to an excitation source to match their sample.

The confocal set-up of the microscope gives rise to both clearer images (by reducing contributions from out-of-focus background regions) and the ability to perform depth profiling studies of samples. This instrument is ideally suited for materials and pharmaceutical characterisation, tissue imaging and chemical identification. The instrument has Confocal depth profiling, Four excitation wavelengths available: 325, 532, 660 & 785 nm, SWIFT and DuoScan mapping options for fast mapping applications, Choice of standard CCD or EM-CCD detectors, Variable temperature stage (-196 to 450 ºC), Choice of gratings for standard or high resolution spectroscopy

Name: N Vision 40 SEM
Description:

The N Vision 40 combines a high resolution SEM to the precision milling and nanofabrication abilities of a high resolution FIB.

The SEM features Schottky field emission Gemini column operating between 100v and 30kV, capable of resolutions of 1.1nm at 20kV and 2.5nm at 1kV. The SIINT Zeta Ga+ ion FIB column operates between 1kV and 30kV with ion currents between 0.1pA and 45nA. The resolution of the ion beam is 4nm at 1pA.

FIB and E-beam deposition is available through the multichannel SII gas injection system (GIS), with facilities for W, C or SiO2, as well as the enhanced etching provided by XeF2 and selective carbon mill gas chemistries.

Dual Kleindiek micromanipulators are also installed. These can be used be used in conjunction with the GIS for in situ specimen lift out, or independently for electrical probing and specimen interaction.

Currently the instrument is equipped with a range of imaging detectors, including a Everhart-Thornley detector, 4 quadrant backscatter, in-lens secondary electron detector and also an energy selective backscatter detector which is also internal to the SEM column. Analytical capabilities in the form of X-ray analysis and EBSD will be added to the instrument.

Additionally, the Raith Elphy Quantum lithography system for both e-beam and ion beam applications can be used to mill or deposit complex structures for nanofabrication.

Current activities on the NVision 40 include:

  • In situ liftout preparation for TEM specimens
  • 3D Atom Probe specimen preparation
  • Serial sectioning for 3D reconstruction

The electron beam source is a 10kV, 3kW source which heats any one of eight 4cc crucible liners. The deposition sources are in a rotating holder that is controlled by a Inficon SQC-310 deposition controller. Typical deposition rates are 1 angstrom/sec. Typical materials include Au, Pd, Ge, Ti, Pt, Al, Nb. Base pressure in the main chamber is less than 1e-7mbar. Samples are introduced via a load lock. Samples can be rotated during evaporation to improve uniformity of deposition and heated to a maximum temperature of 350C. The thickness of the deposited layers is typically correct to better than 10% without any special calibrations.

Description:

The Zeta-20 Optical Microscope is a fully integrated microscope based system that provides 3D imaging and metrology capabilities. The Zeta-20 enables imaging of surfaces with very low reflectivity and very high roughness.

The system scans a sample over a user specified vertical (or Z) range. At each Z position, it records the XY location and the precise Z height of the pixels using the Zeta Optics Module. This information is used to create a true color 3D image and a 2D composite image. The resulting image has an extended depth of focus so the entire surface is seen clearly. The Zeta 3D software can be used to ascertain dimensional and roughness information.

Name: GDS Simple Shear Apparatus
Description:

The GDS Combined Dynamic Cyclic Simple Shear (DCSS) apparatus is a preferred device for research into dynamic soil behaviour because of its simplicity and its ability to model many types of field loading conditions that are difficult to achieve with other laboratory equipment. The DCSS apparatus allows for a smooth and continuous rotation through 90 degrees of the principal stress directions. The ability to simulate principle stress rotation is common to many geotechnical problems, including earthquake loading. The simple shear device allows direct investigation of the shear stress v. shear strain in drained and undrained situations. In addition, the dynamic cyclic capability allows investigation of damping ratio and liquefaction.

Name: 5 Axis Milling Machine (Hermle C20U)
Description:

Hermle 5 axis Milling Machine The C-series of vertical machining centres from the German manufacturer, Hermle, has been extended by the addition of a smaller 3/5-axis model with axis travels of 600 x 450 x 450 mm. Availability in the UK is through sole agent, Geo Kingsbury Machine Tools.

Designated C 20 U, the machine has a working volume around two thirds that of the next larger machine in the range. It is ideal for producing smaller, complex components requiring full 5-axis interpolative metal cutting, achieved by combining the motions of three linear axes with those of a 360-degree rotary table mounted on a 115-degree swiveling trunnion. Hermle machines are generally supplied in this configuration.

However, the maximum component weight of 300 kg supported by a 5-axis C 20 U can be increased to one tonne if a user opts for a fixed-table, 3-axis version of the machine. In this case, an optional, CNC rotary indexing head can be built into one side of the bed to provide 4-axis machining capability.

As with larger machines in the range, the new model has the patented arrangement of three staggered Y-axis guideways, one central to, and set back from, the outer two. This effectively halves the Y-axis span and gives stable traverse using three-point support combined with a single drive in line with the central carriage on the gantry. A mineral casting bed also promotes stable, vibration-free machining.

High productivity results from 6 m/s2 acceleration to 45 m/min in all linear axes, fast rotary axes, and 4.5 seconds chip-to-chip tool change from the 30-station (optionally 43- or 87-station) magazine. Specification of the 40-taper spindle ranges from 10,000 rpm / 32 kW to 40,000 rpm / 26 kW to suit diverse applications, from contouring tool steel to high-speed machining of light alloys for the aerospace industry.

Control options are Heidenhain iTNC 530 or Siemens Sinumeric 840 D, both of which are Ethernet enabled for networking. For users that do not have collision detection as part of their CAM software, Hermle provides a novel safety system. If a cycle is incorrectly programmed so that the spindle hits the workpiece or table in rapid traverse, six mounting bolts with collapsible sleeves crumple and absorb the energy just long enough for the shock to be detected and stopped. The spindle is saved from damage and needs only to be remounted with six new bolts.

Hermle offers multiple automation options for lights-out running based on pallet change, transport and storage that either serves one machine, or can be extended to configure a flexible manufacturing system. Likewise, there are robotic options for loading, handling and unloading components.

Name: Mixer mill
Description:

The single-clamp 8000M Mixer/Mill, known simply as “the Spex Mill” to thousands of users, has served spectroscopists and analytical chemists for over forty years. The clamp mechanism has changed little since the earliest versions, simply because it has proven extremely durable. Many of the earliest 8000 Mixer/Mills are still in service. An electronic 100-minute timer has replaced the original wind-up timer and the mill’s safety features have been improved: the lid is now locked down until the clamp stops moving. 8000-series Mixer/Mills have been used for pulverizing rocks, minerals, sand, cement, slag, ceramics, catalyst supports, and hundreds of other brittle, often hard samples. Early in its market introduction, the 8000 was used to grind samples, then blend them with graphite for arc/spark spectroscopy; now similar samples are ground, then blended with binder before being pressed into sample discs for XRF. The vigorous motion of the clamp is also excellent for making emulsions, such as paints, inks and pharmaceuticals. 8000M Mixer/Mills have also achieved notoriety for their ability to mechanically alloy small quantities of materials in fields such as superconductor research

Name: IR Camera
Description:

The centre has two scientific IR camera systems: An SC7500M and SC7600M LINK WHERE APPROPRIATE. Both of these systems can be used for Thermoelasticity measurements when connected to one of the centre’s tensile testing machines. Thermo-elasticity measurements involve measuring the change in the temperature of the sample under non-destructive cyclical stress.

In addition the two systems can be used for measurements of surface temperature and other measurements.

Apparatus

CAMERA has purchased the two systems to complement each other. The SC7500M has a detector with 320x256 elements and can do 370Hz acquisition rate rising to 20000Hz acquisition by restricting the size. The SC7600M has a detector with 640x512 elements and can capture at 100 Hz rising to 5kHz by restricting the download size of the elements. Both cameras have 14 bit images and are calibrated for 5-300C using the spectral response over 3-5 m. The thermal sensitivity is of the order of 20mK. The systems come with a 50mm F/2 lens and an additional close up lens can be provided if necessary. The system also comes with a computer and a tripod. The software is capable of also detecting and recording analogue signals while the images are being captured.

Additional calibrations to a larger range could be organised in the future if needed, however these need to be done for each lens separately.

Name: Zeiss Binocular Microscope
Description:

Zeiss Binocular Microscope Stemi DV4 SPOT stereomicroscope The fiberoptic cold-light illuminator additionally integrated into the microscope body of the Stemi DV4 ensures that the object field is fully illuminated at all times. The SPOT reflected light irradiating almost vertically on the specimen, provides a shadow-free, high contrast illumination.

Stemi DV4 stereomicroscope The patented zoom system of the Stemi DV4 (Double Lens Vario, zoom factor 4) delivers images that are needle-sharp and, thanks to rigorous stray-light minimization, brilliant and rich in contrast. Across the entire magnification range, from 8x to 32x and across the whole field of view.

The pancratic system, as the heart of the stereomicroscope, has a decisive influence on the optical performance of the overall system. The Stemi DV4 is the first instrument in its class with a mechanically corrected zoom system, a feature that was previously only incorporated into stereomicroscopes in higher price categories. The result: needle-sharp images across the entire zoom range.

Name: Mitutoyo CMM
Description:

Mitutoyo CMM BRT Apex 1200 Senes is an easy to operate, affordably priced bridge-type (moving bridge-type) CNC CMM for measuring large size workpieces. It has been developed to meet the demanding requirements of the customers for easy to operate CMMs at affordable price yet capable of high accuracy measurement over a wide temperature range and excellent measurement stability/repeatability.

The BRT Apex 1200 Senes has a probe mounted at the end of the Z-axis spindle. It can be motor-driven in all three axial directions; X (right and left), Y (back and forth), and Z (up and down). The probe displacement is detected by Mitutoyo's high-accuracy linear encoders (Linear Scales), which are installed on each axis. The coordinate data at each measured point are output to the data processing system for sophisticated and efficient 2D or 3D measurement/analysis of geometry and contours. These capabilities are specially useful when measuring bulky workpieces that have been hard to handle or access with conventional microscopes, and when making multi-planar measurements of workpieces with a complex shape. Note that the BRT Apex 1200 ensures high measuring accuracy over a wide temperature range with the temperature compensation capability (optional).

The BRT Apex 1200 Series is best suited for inspecting incoming, in-process and final components of such as the following workpieces;

  • Molds for pressing, die casting, injection molding, and precision casting
  • Molded products (before and after machining)
  • Prototypes from NC machine tools
  • Machined parts

Name: Platform Dynomometer
Description:

Quartz three-component dynamometer for measuring the three orthogonal components of a force. The dynamometer has a great rigidity and consequently a high natural frequency. Its high resolution enables the smallest dynamic changes in large forces to be measured.

• Universal applicable • For cutting force measurements • Stable and reliable

Description

The dynamometer consists of four three-component force sensors fitted under high preload between a baseplate and a top plate. Each sensor contains three pairs of quartz plates, one sensitive to pressure in the z direction and the other two responding to shear in the x and y directions respectively. The force components are measured practically without displacement. The outputs of the four built-in force sensors are connected inside the dynamometer in a way to allow multicomponent measurements of forces and moments to be performed. The eight output signals are available at the 9-conductor flange socket. The four sensors are mounted ground-insulated. Therefore ground loop problems are largely eliminated. The dynamometer is rustproof and protected against penetration of splashwater and cooling agents. Together with the connecting cable Type 1687B5/1689B5 and Type 1677A5/1679A5 it corresponds to the protection class IP67. A special thermal isolation coating is integrated in the top plate which renders the dynamometer largely insensitive to temperature influences.

Application Examples

• Dynamic and quasistatic measurement of the three orthogonal components of a force • Measuring cutting force when turning, milling, grinding etc. In conjunction with the calibrated partial ranges the high sensitivity and low threshold allow exact measurements on small tools and when grinding. • Measurements on scale models in wind channels

Name: Zeiss Z.1 Imaging System
Description:

Light sheet fluorescence microscopy or LSFM splits fluorescence excitation and detection into two separate light paths, with the axis of illumination perpendicular to the detection axis. That means you illuminate a single thin section of your sample at one time, generating an inherent optical section by exciting only fluorescence from the in-focus plane. No pinhole or image processing is required for light sheet microscopy. Light from the in-focus plane is collected on the pixels of a camera, rather than pixel by pixel as, for example, in confocal or other laser scanning microscopy approaches. Parallelization of the image collection on a camera-based detector lets you collect images faster and with less excitation light than you would with many other microscope techniques. In summary, LSFM combines the optical sectioning effect with parallel image acquisition from the complete focal plane. This makes 3D imaging extremely fast and very light efficient.

Name: Thermo microbalance
Description:

The heart of the TG 209 F1 is the micro furnace made of high-performance ceramics. It not only allows for a wider sample temperature range of up to 1100°C, but also for heating rates of up to 200 K/min. The user can thus receive the results of the analysis – even at highest temperature – within a few minutes, i.e. 20 times faster than for other thermobalances. With the TG 209 F1, the sample temperature is measured directly. Endo- and exothermal reactions can now be detected and show, for example, the melting point of the sample, in the evaluation. This yields considerably more information on the sample behavior without having to carry out further measurements.

Name: 3D Interferometer
Description:

Photomap 3D interferometer Optical proftlometry is the most convenient technique for surface analysis.

The optical view of the sample is converted to an elevation map using interferogram processing techniques. The height of each pixel is determined independently one to each other with a nanometric accuracy in a single scan. Light is emitted by a selectable light source (So). A beam splitter (Sp) splits the light beam in two half beams marked as 1 and 2. This device is integrated inside the interferometric objective. One of the two beams is reflected by a reference mirror (M), the other is reflected at the sample surface (P) or at internal interface in the case of transparent layers. The cube (Sp) combine the two beams and sends the resulting image, through the tube lens (L), the camera (C).

The intensity l(d) which is measured on one pixel of the CCD camera, varies in function of the difference of length (d) between the two beams ways I et 2. This result in an image showing interference fringes following the equal-height lines on the sample.

With monochromatic light source, the intensity varies as a sinus function of the optical path difference, with a constant amplitude. Phase measurement of the interferometric fringes is the principle used by profilometry techniques called phase shifting interferometry.

With white light the signal 1(d), the fringe amplitude is rapidly decreasing, due to the incoherent nature of the white light. The maximum of contrast is located at d = 0. Localisation of the fringe maximum contrast is the principle used by profilometry techniques called white light interferometry.

Name: Dynamic Vapour Sorption (DVS)
Description:

A gravimetric technique that measures how quickly and how much of a solvent is absorbed by a sample: such as a dry powder absorbing water. It does this by varying the vapour concentration surrounding the sample and measuring the change in mass which this produces. Typically used for aggregates and powders however has been employed for similar roles across other departments demonstrating its flexibility.

Name: EBM
Description:

By controlling the energy of the electron beam to change the degree of melting the surface, surface roughness can be reduced to 1/3 while a sharp edge made in Wire Cut EDMing is preserved without deformation. EBMing extends the longevity of dies and molds. In the EBMing process, a work piece surface is quickly heated and rapidly cooled to improve the surface structure and resistance to corrosion. For plastic molds, EBMing greatly improves mold release-ability, leading to reduction of molding cycle time. The EBM is user-friendly. The CNC has easy instructions and the operator can select EBMing conditions such as material, beaming condition and beam patters simply.

Name: Spark Eroder AP1L
Description:

Sodick AP1L Spark Eroder Electric discharge machining (EDM), sometimes colloquially also referred to as spark machining, spark eroding, burning, die sinking or wire erosion, is a manufacturing process whereby a desired shape is obtained using electrical discharges (sparks).[1] Material is removed from the workpiece by a series of rapidly recurring current discharges between two electrodes, separated by a dielectric liquid and subject to an electric voltage. One of the electrodes is called the tool-electrode, or simply the ‘tool’ or ‘electrode’, while the other is called the workpiece-electrode, or ‘workpiece’. When the distance between the two electrodes is reduced, the intensity of the electric field in the volume between the electrodes becomes greater than the strength of the dielectric (at least in some point(s)), which breaks, allowing current to flow between the two electrodes. This phenomenon is the same as the breakdown of a capacitor (condenser) (see also breakdown voltage). As a result, material is removed from both the electrodes. Once the current flow stops (or it is stopped – depending on the type of generator), new liquid dielectric is usually conveyed into the inter-electrode volume enabling the solid particles (debris) to be carried away and the insulating properties of the dielectric to be restored. Adding new liquid dielectric in the inter-electrode volume is commonly referred to as flushing. Also, after a current flow, a difference of potential between the two electrodes is restored to what it was before the breakdown, so that a new liquid dielectric breakdown can occur.

Name: HPLC Agilent 1260 Infinity
Description:

High-performance liquid chromatography (HPLC) is a technique in analytical chemistry used to separate the components in a mixture, to identify each component, and to quantify each component. It relies on pumps to pass a pressurized liquid solvent containing the sample mixture through a column filled with a solid adsorbent material. Each component in the sample interacts slightly differently with the adsorbent material, causing different flow rates for the different components and leading to the separation of the components as they flow out the column.

Name: Wire Eroder
Description:

In Wire Electrical Discharge Machining (WEDMing), or Wire-Cut EDM, a thin single-strand metal wire is fed through the work piece, typically occurring while in a submerged tank of dielectric fluid. This process is used to cut plates and to make punches, tools, and dies from any conductive material, including hard metals that are too difficult to machine with other methods. The wire is held between upper and lower diamond guides. The guides move in the (X-Y) plane controlled by a CNC, the upper guide can also move independently in the (Z-U-V) axis, giving rise to the ability to cut tapered and transitioning shapes and can control axes movements. This gives the Wire-Cut EDM the ability to be programmed to cut very intricate and delicate shapes. Wire EDMing is commonly used when low residual stresses are desired. Wire EDM has no added residual stress because it has no cutting forces. There is little change in the mechanical properties of a material in Wire EDMing due to its low residual stresses.

Name: Kistler Tool Dynomometer
Description:

The dynamometer consists of 3 parts. It can only be used for cutting force measurements if the three parts and the connecting cable Type 1689B5 are mounted.

Part 1 Revolver adapter Type 9155A..., developed for the revolver tool clamping system, DIN 69880 (VDI 3425) with integrated cooling agent connection.

Part 2 Dynamometer Type 9121 with mounted quartz sensors.

Part 3 Toolholders Type 9153A... for tools turning the outside diameter or Toolholders Type 9151A... for boring bars

The dynamometer Type 9121 consists of four three-component force sensors fitted under high preload between a base plate and a top plate. Each sensor contains three pairs of quartz plates, one sensitive to pressure in the z direction and the other two responding to shear in the x and y direction respectively. The force components are measured practically without displacement. The four sensors are mounted ground-isolated. Therefore ground loop problems are largely eliminated. The dynamometer is rustproof and protected against penetration of splashwater and cooling agents. Together with the connecting cable Type 1689B5 it corresponds to the protection class IP6.

The Retsch jaw crusher can accommodate material up to about 90mm in size and reduce it down to about 3mm in size (the process will produce a percentage of fines also). The resultant material can then be sieved into size fractions or saved for further size reduction using a disc mill or similar.

Name: 5 Axis Milling Machine (Hermle C800C)
Description:

Hermle 5 axis Milling Machine The C-series of vertical machining centres from the German manufacturer, Hermle, has been extended by the addition of a smaller 3/5-axis model with axis travels of 600 x 450 x 450 mm. Availability in the UK is through sole agent, Geo Kingsbury Machine Tools.

Designated C 20 U, the machine has a working volume around two thirds that of the next larger machine in the range. It is ideal for producing smaller, complex components requiring full 5-axis interpolative metalcutting, achieved by combining the motions of three linear axes with those of a 360-degree rotary table mounted on a 115-degree swivelling trunnion. Hermle machines are generally supplied in this configuration.

However, the maximum component weight of 300 kg supported by a 5-axis C 20 U can be increased to one tonne if a user opts for a fixed-table, 3-axis version of the machine. In this case, an optional, CNC rotary indexing head can be built into one side of the bed to provide 4-axis machining capability.

As with larger machines in the range, the new model has the patented arrangement of three staggered Y-axis guideways, one central to, and set back from, the outer two. This effectively halves the Y-axis span and gives stable traverse using three-point support combined with a single drive in line with the central carriage on the gantry. A mineral casting bed also promotes stable, vibration-free machining.

High productivity results from 6 m/s2 acceleration to 45 m/min in all linear axes, fast rotary axes, and 4.5 seconds chip-to-chip tool change from the 30-station (optionally 43- or 87-station) magazine. Specification of the 40-taper spindle ranges from 10,000 rpm / 32 kW to 40,000 rpm / 26 kW to suit diverse applications, from contouring tool steel to high-speed machining of light alloys for the aerospace industry.

Control options are Heidenhain iTNC 530 or Siemens Sinumeric 840 D, both of which are Ethernet enabled for networking. For users that do not have collision detection as part of their CAM software, Hermle provides a novel safety system. If a cycle is incorrectly programmed so that the spindle hits the workpiece or table in rapid traverse, six mounting bolts with collapsible sleeves crumple and absorb the energy just long enough for the shock to be detected and the infeed stopped. The spindle is saved from damage and needs only to be remounted with six new bolts.

Hermle offers multiple automation options for lights-out running based on pallet change, transport and storage that either serves one machine, or can be extended to configure a flexible manufacturing system. Likewise, there are robotic options for loading, handling and unloading components.

Name: IR Camera
Description:

The centre has two scientific IR camera systems: An SC7500M and SC7600M LINK WHERE APPROPRIATE. Both of these systems can be used for Thermoelasticity measurements when connected to one of the centre’s tensile testing machines. Thermo-elasticity measurements involve measuring the change in the temperature of the sample under non-destructive cyclical stress.

In addition the two systems can be used for measurements of surface temperature and other measurements.

Apparatus

CAMERA has purchased the two systems to complement each other. The SC7500M has a detector with 320x256 elements and can do 370Hz acquisition rate rising to 20000Hz acquisition by restricting the size. The SC7600M has a detector with 640x512 elements and can capture at 100 Hz rising to 5kHz by restricting the download size of the elements. Both cameras have 14 bit images and are calibrated for 5-300C using the spectral response over 3-5 m. The thermal sensitivity is of the order of 20mK. The systems come with a 50mm F/2 lens and an additional close up lens can be provided if necessary. The system also comes with a computer and a tripod. The software is capable of also detecting and recording analogue signals while the images are being captured.

Additional calibrations to a larger range could be organised in the future if needed, however these need to be done for each lens separately.

Name: Veeco AFM
Description:

The Atomic Force Microscope consists of a cantilever with a sharp tip (probe) at its end that is used to scan the specimen surface. The cantilever is typically silicon or silicon nitride with a tip radius of curvature on the order of nanometers. When the tip is brought into proximity of a sample surface, forces between the tip and the sample lead to a deflection of the cantilever according to Hooke's law[citation needed]. Depending on the situation, forces that are measured in AFM include mechanical contact force, van der Waals forces, capillary forces, chemical bonding, electrostatic forces, magnetic forces (see magnetic force microscope, MFM), Casimir forces, solvation forces, etc. Along with force, additional quantities may simultaneously be measured through the use of specialized types of probe (see scanning thermal microscopy, scanning joule expansion microscopy, photothermal microspectroscopy, etc.). Typically, the deflection is measured using a laser spot reflected from the top surface of the cantilever into an array of photodiodes. Other methods that are used include optical interferometry, capacitive sensing or piezoresistive AFM cantilevers. These cantilevers are fabricated with piezoresistive elements that act as a strain gauge. Using a Wheatstone bridge, strain in the AFM cantilever due to deflection can be measured, but this method is not as sensitive as laser deflection or interferometry.

Atomic force microscope topographical scan of a glass surface. The micro and nano-scale features of the glass can be observed, portraying the roughness of the material. The image space is (x,y,z) = (20 µm × 20 µm × 420 nm). If the tip was scanned at a constant height, a risk would exist that the tip collides with the surface, causing damage. Hence, in most cases a feedback mechanism is employed to adjust the tip-to-sample distance to maintain a constant force between the tip and the sample. Traditionally, the sample is mounted on a piezoelectric tube, that can move the sample in the z direction for maintaining a constant force, and the x and y directions for scanning the sample. Alternatively a 'tripod' configuration of three piezo crystals may be employed, with each responsible for scanning in the x,y and z directions. This eliminates some of the distortion effects seen with a tube scanner. In newer designs, the tip is mounted on a vertical piezo scanner while the sample is being scanned in X and Y using another piezo block. The resulting map of the area z = f(x,y) represents the topography of the sample.

Name: Fischione Model 200 Dimpling Grinder
Description:

The dimpling grinder is used on the preparation of material science / physics samples, prior to Electron Microscopy analysis. High-quality specimens for transmission electron microscopy (TEM) need to have a large electron transparent area for analysis, but yet be rugged. One method that accomplishes both of these prerequisites is dimpling. Dimpling is a rapid technique that involves simultaneously rotating the specimen about one axis and a grinding wheel about a perpendicular and intersecting axis. This combination of motions provides a specimen with its central area reduced to a thickness of a few microns. By thinning only the central area of the specimen, a thick, rugged outer rim remains, eliminating the need for special handling techniques for fragile specimens. An abrasive slurry that is in contact with the grinding wheel and the specimen.

Name: Mercury Porosimeter
Description:

The term “porosimetry” is often used to include the measurements of pore size, volume, distribution, density, and other porosity-related characteristics of a material. Porosity is especially important in understanding the formation, structure, and potential use of many substances. The Auropore 4 is a mercury intrusion porosimeter, used for the determination of bulk and skeletal volume of samples, pore size, shape and volume fraction by incremental intrusion of mercury into sample.
