Working to Perfect Your Testing Application

May 26, 2016 | By CTS Admin
At Cincinnati Test Systems (CTS), we know that every testing application is different. Therefore, a “standard” CTS Connect unit won’t necessarily be right for your unique needs. To meet the challenges of your specific testing application, we can customize our connectors to provide a better more reliable performance.

Seal Material & Durometer Can Make A Difference In Your Testing Application

The standard seal ring materials on our CTS Connect units are made from a proprietary material that is ideally suited to a wide range of testing applications. However, specialized applications may require specialized seal materials in order to achieve optimum performance. We offer seal rings in a range of durometers and specialty materials to meet your testing needs. Specialty seal ring options include, but are not limited to:
  • High temperature materials
  • Solvent and chemical resistant materials
  • FDA-approved medical-grade materials

Specialized Housing Materials & Alloys

Housings for all standard CTS Connect units are manufactured from corrosion-resistant aluminum and stainless steel materials for long working life with minimal maintenance requirements. Other specialty materials and alloys may be available, upon request, for medical, clean-room, or other clean-critical testing applications.

Spring Mounts & Tapered Guide Adapters

CTS offers spring mounts and tapered guide adapters. These devices attach directly to the bottom and top of the CTS Connect unit and compensate for minor misalignment's to help guide the tested parts into position. The robust construction and durable materials help withstand the wear and tear of nonstop or high-cycle automated use. Our spring mounts and tapered guides can be used separately or in tandem. As well are equally effective in manual testing applications.

Pneumatic or Electrical Control Switches

Standard CTS Connect units are manually actuated. However, we can provide pneumatic or electrically-operated control switches for faster and easier operation. Whether you need externally-powered controls for automated/semi-automated testing, remote operation, or simply want to save yourself from sore hands and fingers. Our pneumatic and electrical control switches are an ideal solution.
