New testing equipment increases quality control and lowers costs

Continuing its legacy of innovating for the wire and cable industry, Sjogren Industries has developed a line of testing and handling equipment for its customers that is setting a new paradigm for quality control.

Sjogren’s product line includes machines that test for hardness and ductility and others capable of identifying a variety of flaws.

Sjogren manufactures these products for its worldwide customer base and the innovations have proven to reduce costs while improving quality.

Sjogren’s Bench Top Wrap Tester is designed to test spring wire for ductility, or to test the adhesion of metallic coatings. The test consists of coiling the wire in a closely spaced helix to enable visual inspection for cracks or fractures.

The Torsion Twist Tester identifies brittleness, inclusions, hidden seams, and other flaws. Sjogren’s Torsion Twist Tester comes in three models to address a wide range of applications and features 12 possible twisting programs with memory of the complete cycle.

Sjogren provides a variety of wedge grip, wedge block, and insert style testing jaws compatible with the most popular tensile testing machines. Sjogren can also custom manufacture any wedge block or insert from your CAD drawing or the actual part needing replacement.
