Machine equipped with mechanical clamps with a capacity of 250 kN, making it possible to perform:
- tests on cylindrical (max. Ø 30 mm) and prismatic (max. 60 mm thickness) specimens
- tests on tubes (max. ø 60 mm) or complex assemblies (tools on request)
The tensile tests can be carried out between -100 ° C and 350 ° C in a thermal chamber (maximum distance 300 mm) with a basic breaking extensometer adjustable between 10 mm and 100 mm and 120 mm stroke.
Beyond this, the tensile tests are carried out in a furnace heated by resistance up to 1200°C with an extensometer (base 10 to 50 mm) palpating on the calibrated part of the test piece through a window of the furnace.
The tensile tests can be controlled in strain or stress at a constant or variable speed according to the main standards. We are accredited for FRAMATOME specification 715.
