Pharma & Grocery Cold Chain E-Commerce Packaging

Using real-time simulation for optimized packaging solutions in pharma and grocery cold chain

Integrated Design Yields Comprehensive Beauty

The rift between design and engineering is an industry cliché perpetuated for nearly a century. It resides in the frustration designers feel with the “lack of vision” of the engineering community and the disdain engineers feel for the design community’s lack of technical bottom.

Polymers, Elastomers and Composites

SES offers a full range of R&D, failure analysis and analytical characterization support services. The growth of polymers, elastomers and composites is not limited to the durable and non-durable consumer and medical products industries, but also includes manufacturing equipment components, industrial products, oilfield equipment and pipeline repair. SES has invested heavily in staffing and polymer characterization/testing instruments. A new polymer materials services facility has been constructed in SES’s centrally located Ohio facility to meet the growing demand for this work. The labs include a broad range of equipment necessary to evaluate the very complex polymer-related materials challenges for our clients.

Collect Critical Data In the Most Remote Environments

Solar Power and Energy Harvesting Enables Long and Short Term Data Acquisition in the Most Remote Locations
Stress Engineering Services routinely configures remote, un-staffed data collection and monitoring systems in the most extreme environments and remote locations for a broad range of industrial applications. These systems can include a wide range of sensor types – including: strain gages, accelerometers, thermocouples, load cells or pressure transducers, regardless of the lack of infrastructure where the measurement or monitoring is to take place. The measurement and monitoring systems are autonomous and fully secure.

Analytical Lab Services - Polymers, Elastomers & Composites

Dynamic Mechanical Analysis (DMA)
Differential Scanning Calorimetry (DSC)
Fourier Transform Infrared Spectroscopy (FTIR)
Thermomechanical Analysis (TMA)
Thermogravimetric Analysis (TGA)

SES provides physical, chemical, mechanical and thermal analysis of a broad range of materials. From the non-metallic world of polymers, elastomers, and polymer based composites to liquids and lubricants, and also traditional metallic materials, SES has the experience to identify and develop the test method required, conduct the testing, and interpret the results.

Rethinking Polypropylene

There are indications that polypropylene’s (PP) multi-decade reign as the polymer with the lowest material cost per cubic inch is ending. Seismic changes in energy markets and their derivative products over the past decade are now combining to structurally alter the market dynamics of PP. As a result, many products and packages made from PP may need to reconsider whether it remains the best material for the application.

Plastic Package Damage in Unit Loads

It is clear that sustainability will be THE packaging topic for the next decade, and that interest and concern is global. To meet the growing demand for packaging-related engineering services, Stress Engineering Services (SES) has developed predictive computational methods and physics-based testing to achieve sustainability goals.

Testing and Characterizing Composites

Advanced, high-performance composite materials have their roots in the aerospace industry. However, these materials have found other uses in the design and repair of large stationary equipment like pipelines, heat exchangers and pipe hangers.

Plastics & Composites Testing:  Material Characterization & Failure Analysis

Laboratory-based material testing and characterization capabilities are the cornerstone of Stress Engineering’s plastics, rubber and composites design and predictive analysis services.
