Max software for simple fatigue testing on the FastTrack 8800 servohydraulic testing system is featured in a four-page brochure. Max 32 bit software is designed for all types of fatigue testing, including high and low cycle fatigue Low-Cycle Fatigue is cycle conditions that result in
1.) fatigue (material) in less than 105 cycles (some sources say 103cycles).
2.) macroplastic deformation in every cycle. , service simulation, block loading, uniaxial uniaxial /uni·ax·i·al/ (u?ne-ak´se-al)
1. having only one axis.
2. developing in an axial direction only.
1. having only one axis.
2. developed in an axial direction only. , biaxial biaxial /bi·ax·i·al/ (-ak´se-al) having, pertaining to, or occurring in two axes. and multiaxial Mul`ti`ax´i`al
a. 1. (Biol.) Having more than one axis; developing in more than a single line or plain; - opposed to monoaxial nt>. fatigue, and random loading. Max is said to be perfect for product development testing involving polymers, composites and other materials, according to the literature. Max is also used for the durability and product life testing needed to meet customer quality expectations in fields such as biomedical, automotive, aircraft, aerospace and power generation, according to the literature. Max runs in the Windows 95 and NT environments under FastTrack Console, the software interface of FastTrack 8800, or alongside the FastTrack operator panel.

MAP materials testing software is highlighted in the company's four-page, four-color brochure. MAP (motion analysis presentation) software is said to give users total testing freedom in one self-contained package. User-friendly operation is said to simplify everything from monotonic testing to complex motion control. MAP provides comprehensive statistical information. By selecting display styles, result and graph formats, multilingual report labels and custom color test curves, users can see the information in the format that works best for them.

The PolyDrive extruder is based on the company's PolyLab system technology, but is further developed to provide solutions for extrusion applications, according to a six-page, four-color, fold-out brochure. The extrusion process can be followed on the large-scale display and documented via the interface in the user's production or laboratory control center. Extrusion parameters are stored after entry and can be called up at the touch of a button. (Haake, 53 W. Century Rd., Paramus, NJ 07652)

Mooney viscometer viscometer
Instrument for measuring the viscosity (resistance to internal flow) of a fluid. In one type, the time taken for a given volume of fluid to flow through an opening is recorded.
The ViscTech+ Mooney viscometer is designed to meet the requirements of full time quality control and development testing, according to a four-page, four-color brochure. The ViscTech comes standard with the CompuGraph for Windows data acquisition program. (Tech Pro, 289 Remington Rd., Suite B, Cuyahoga Falls, OH 44224)
