On screen, the "i" software can operate in a very user-friendly gauge emulation mode, where the screen is laid out just like a traditional force gage and measurements are shown in a calculator-like display.
To accomplish this, the samples are placed on a tension/compression testing machine (manufactured by Chatillon, Greensboro, N.C.) with a force gage mounted on it.
The recorded force gage reading serves to distinguish true bond shearing from the other possible consequences of the experiment.
The LI line of force solutions consists of systems for computer controlled force measurement, digital force gages, FMM digital force tester motorized test stands, manual test stands and load cell sensors.
