Visit our thermal treated guitars at Musikmesse Frankfurt

March 29, 2017 in News

With a new thermal treatment process, the research team led by Prof. Dr. Alexander Pfriem, vice president for research and technology transfer at the University of Sustainable Development Eberswalde (HNEE), has succeeded in making indigenous species of wood usable for plucked and string instruments. On the 5th to the 8th of April, 2017, in cooperation with Reinhardt Best Acoustics GmbH, the guitars and the new process will be presented at the Frankfurt Musikmesse.

Musikmesse Frankfurt Main

Detailed information on this new procedure will be given by Prof. Dr. Pfriem at an official press conference at the booth of Reinhardt Best Acoustics GmbH at the Musikmesse in Frankfurt (booth E92, hall 8) on Wednesday, April 5, 2017 at 9:30 am. A panel discussion on the same day will take place between 1 pm and 2 pm in hall 8, booth D50.

Join our round robin DMA- test program

September 12, 2016 in News

HNEE's GABO Eplexor 25

HNEE’s GABO Eplexor 25

We would like to initiate a Round Robin Test with DMA and wood.

Background: as there are no standardized test methods for DMA (Dynamic Mechanical Analysis) testing of wood we developed a method for tensile tests. Results were presented at the WSE 2016 in Riga.

Beginning from the manufacturing up to the clamping of the specimens in the DMA machine there is a huge variety of possibilities to prepare the samples. There is also a range of parameters like the preload and the frequency that can be altered.

In order to elaborate comparable specimen preparation and testing methods we would like to initiate a round robin test for wood specimen on DMA machines.

In this test different laboratories equipped with different DMA machines should carry out the same test on wood specimen. Aim of the test is to develop reliable DMA test setups for wood producing comparable results. Join our round robin test program:

Please contact Robin if you would like to take part in the program.

We appreciate if we could work together.
