Plastic testing under control

Lloyd Instruments : 15 August, 2006  (New Product)
Automation of plastics testing routines is of critical importance in busy testing environments, whether in manufacturing, quality control or research and development.
The full capabilities of the latest upgrades to Lloyd Instruments' NEXYGEN MT materials testing control software. NEXYGEN MT is a powerful Windows based program featuring a vast library of international standard tests for many different applications. It can be used for data analysis and to control the company's 'Plus', EZ and LR Series universal testing machines, the Davenport MFI-10 Melt Flow Indexer and HDT/VICATPlus and supports the comprehensive range of CHATILLON digital force gauges.

NEXYGEN software, however, offers far more than just control facilities. It now includes strict multilevel security and audit trails for complete traceability of users and data. Additional analysis is possible using video capture and 'live' test playback, and integrated drivers allow machine control in the LabVIEW platform.

The security and data audit tracking features have been designed not only to help companies wishing to implement more secure and traceable testing procedures but also to help users, such as manufacturers of medical plastics and pharmaceutical packaging, who need to comply withthe requirements of FDA 21CFR Part 11. Supervisors can select appropriate operator access levels, who must login at all times, and safeguard the unauthorised use of passwords. NEXYGEN software also records full details of all operator logins and logouts, and when each test is created, changed, deleted or aborted. Audit trails are time stamped to provide an accurate history of data. Automatic saving and archiving ensures no test data is ever lost, and final reports include the date, time, user ID, system ID, location ID or other supervisor defined parameters.

Video capture and playback is a powerful visual aid for training and research purposes. Users can video record live tests in action, then play back the images simultaneously during results analysis. Other benefits include a new clear integrated HTML help system, improved test set-ups, and new reporting and exporting features.

NEXYGEN software also features software drivers for seamless control of Lloyd Instruments' test machines in LabVIEW. LabVIEW, from National Instruments, is widely used because of a flexible approach to programming that uses graphics and icons.
