The larger workshop space will allow us to fast-track new technologies that we currently have under development, and details on many of these will be released over the next few months. Future expansion is also provided for in the building design so that we can add further R & D facilities as demand grows.
One item that we have recently completed development work on is the Carnetech Tenderometer, which provides a fast, accurate reproducible system to measure shear force. ‘Biting’ is automated and all the data are captured on a computer via the instrument software and interface. The complete force-deformation curve for each âbiteâ is also produced in real time allowing the curve to be analysed later for other textural attributes. The pictures below show the latest pre-production model, and we will shortly release details of the commercial units that are currently being manufactured.
More information about our current work and capabilities is now available on our upgraded website. It now allows you to register, log in and access technical information, specific reports, news etc. More effort will be going into the website over the coming months to provide enhanced functionality to our clients enabling them to access information via this interface.
In the meantime, please donât hesitate to contact us to discuss the Tenderometer or any of our other serviceâs or programmes.
