Tensile testing, compression and cycling
Tensile Testing – Compression and Cycling
Tension test is probably the most basic type of mechanical test you can perform on the hardware. Tensile tests are simple, relatively inexpensive and fully standardized. By pulling something, you will very quickly determine how the material will react to the forces being applied in tension. As the material is drawn, its strength is measured by measuring how much it will be stretched.
A compression test determines the behavior of materials under load. The sample is compressed and deformed with different loads and results are recorded. The compressive and deformation stresses are calculated and plotted as a diagram which is used to determine the elastic limit, proportional limit, yield stress and for some materials, compressive strength. We can test the sets up to 50kN.
Cycling and Fatigue
Thermal cycling tests are a must for the validation of electrical insulation, electronic interfaces, components and complete systems. Our equipment allows to generate temperatures from -70 ° C to + 160 ° C - with or without cycles. We can test the sets up to 5kN.
The following materials can be subjected to stress testing and thermal cycling, including concrete, metals, plastics, ceramics, composite materials, cardboard paper, and electronic products. ASTM D3359 is the most common standard we perform tensile testing to.
