Mecmesin in shock horror probe

Actually, this is about detonator shock tubing which is used in the mining and construction industry to set off controlled explosions.  The special shock tubing links all the explosive charges that have been carefully prepared, and ensures they detonate in the right sequence.  It is vitally important that the shock tubing is sufficiently resilient and strong enough to withstand the rigours of life in a quarry or a mine, so the tube manufacturer has devised a series of tests to ensure their product is always up to the mark. After all, in this industry "near enough" is not "good enough".   A MultiTest-i force testing stand and Emperor software are used to perform the critical tests and capture all the data.

The result? No drama, just reliable, controlled explosions exactly as planned.
