High Force DMA EPLEXOR equipped with a new Multi Purpose Automatic Sampler (MPAS) system

Induced by requests from the tire industry, GABO Qualimeter Testanlagen GmbH launched its first fully automated DMTA equipment for continuous operation in 1995. That robot system supported the EPLEXOR series in mono mode operation (tensile, compression, 3-p-bending, shear) from special mode dedicated magazines. The Autosampler ASSS contains sufficient test samples to enable the operation through the entire weekend. Each specimen is selected automatically and tested according to the predefined batch. Improved versatility of the supply system is required, nowadays. Again, GABO QUALIMETER Testanlagen GmbH accomplishes this change by developing and fabricating a new advanced Multi Purpose Automatic Sampler system (MPAS) in 2010. This MPAS system serves the required test sample to the EPLEXOR system in time capable of multi mode operation. Presently tensile, compression, bending, shear and the tackiness tests are supported. The operation sequence is arbitrarily and therefore predefined by the user needs. The MPAS accommodates up to 150 samples of different type and geometry in one standardized, elevator style magazine. The execution of tensile, shear, and compression tests on vulcanized rubbers as well as tackiness tests on
