Imatek has recently installed its integrated high-speed video system at the Corus Swinden Technology Centre (STC) in Rotherham.

The system will be used to improve understanding of the performance of steel at high rates of strain and for other general applications.

Corus is a steel producer with annual revenues of around GBP12bn and a crude steel production of over 20 million tonnes.

The research, development and technology business of Corus employs almost 950 researchers across Britain and the Netherlands.

Corus works in collaboration with universities and research institutes all over the world, as well as with key customers in the automotive, transport, packaging and construction areas.

The Swinden Technology Centre in Rotherham is the main research and development site in the UK focusing on product research and applications research for the transport, building and construction sectors.

Imatek’s integrated high-speed video system uses its C3008 data acquisition system to combine signals recorded during a test event together with high speed video imagery, all under the control of Imateks Impacqt software.

Since the camera and the data acquisition share the same trigger, data points and images can be precisely correlated.

A video sequence provides a great deal of qualitative information about the test event, and the software also allows quantitative information to be extracted.

Integrated high-speed video is available as an option for any of the Imatek range of impact testers or in a stand-alone mode, so it can be utilised by other parts of a customers operation and on a wide range of test apparatus including UTM’s, pendulum and drop weight testers.

As standard, the high-speed video option provides a complete package including C3008 data acquisition, software, camera, choice of lenses, lighting controller, lights and tripods/stands.
