These tests can be conducted at -196°C and between -100°C and 1000°C !
5 computerised tensile/compression testing machines are capable of applying forces of up to 600 kN.
5 computerised tensile/compression testing machines are capable of applying forces of up to 600 kN. These tests can be conducted at -196°C and between -100°C and 1000°C.
Machine fitted with mechanical jaws with a capacity of 250 kN for conducting :
- tests on cylindrical (max. diameter 30 mm) and prismatic (max. thickness 60 mm),
- test specimens on tubes (max. diameter 60 mm) or complex assemblies (tools on request).
Tensile tests can be conducted between -100°C and 350°C in a climatic chamber (maximum stroke 300 mm) with a fracture extensometer with an adjustable base between 10 mm and 100 mm and 120 mm stroke.
Above these values, tensile tests are conducted in a resistance heating furnace up to 1000°C with an extensometer (10 to 50 mm base) probing on the calibrated part of the test specimen via a furnace window.
Tensile tests can be set for deformation or stress at constant or variable rates based on the main standards.
