How to Expand Your Testing Capabilities with "Piggybacking"
For labs that test a variety of materials at a wide range of forces, finding ways to do more with your testing systems is critical. Sometimes it’s not convenient or even practical to swap out fixtures or load cells to accommodate the testing you need to do.

In this webinar we’ll be discussing the concept of “piggybacking” which involves using adapters to mount lower capacity fixtures on more permanent high-capacity fixtures, and lower capacity load cells on higher capacity load cells to capture finer measurements. As part of this presentation, we’ll explain how this increases the versatility of your universal testing system and can help future proof your lab.

What You’ll Learn
• What piggybacking is
• How to piggyback your load cells and why you’d want to do this
• How to piggyback smaller grips and fixtures on your larger more permanent fixtures
• Benefits of adopting piggybacking
