    Abstract

    The traditional manual techniques required in preparation of samples and machine operation when performing stress-strain testing of elastomers have been a burden to laboratory managers for decades. When repeated in high volume, they became a significant cost factor. As a result, such testing became a prime area of study for automation.

    To meet the demands for greater test production, higher reliability of information than was possible with the old methods, and to lower operating costs, Uniroyal developed the BUD II, a fully automated tensile tester. With this machine one operator, using only a minimum of time, prepares specimens and completes up to four times as many tests in a day as with earlier methods, while providing highly reliable and computerized information.
