Portable device for quality assurance testing of thermoplastics

Lacerta Technology : 07 April, 2011  (Company News)
Lacerta Technology Limited is the new company behind the identiPol QA, the portable device for the simple and cost-effective quality assurance testing of thermoplastics.
Lacerta will also continue the successful instrument development business and consultancy services formerly provided by Triton Technology Limited, which has been sold to the company Mettler-Toledo AG. As part of the Triton sale, Mettler-Toledo AG has also acquired ownership of its Dynamic Mechanical Analyser (DMA) product line.

Lacerta will focus on products and services aimed at enhancing process and quality control in the plastics industry. Key to this offering is the identiPol QA, the relatively low-cost device for the identification and rapid quality assessment of virtually any thermoplastic material. Since its launch, customer interest in the identiPol QA has grown steadily with close to 30 units sold to date in the UK and Europe. Recent industry recognition of the identiPol QA includes its short-listing as a finalist in the “Best Technology” category of the Plastics Industry Awards 2010.

Lacerta will also provide a range of analytical and contract consultancy services for both materials measurement and instrument design from its premises in Keyworth near Nottingham. Drawing from over two decades of experience in the plastics industry, its specialists can offer a range of analytical techniques aimed at characterising and determining the properties of a wide range of materials including synthetic and natural polymers, composites, adhesives, membranes, thin films and coatings. This information can assist customers in the selection of materials and resolution of quality issues for a vast number of applications.
Lacerta will continue to develop, manufacture and supply humidity control systems as well as the Dielectric Thermal Analysis (DETA) equipment formerly belonging to Triton Technology Limited. It will also remain the European importer for the full range of Shimadzu Thermal Analysis equipment.
