Our equipment includes five universal testing machines (servo-hydraulic).
... accoring to Vickers, Brinell and Rockwell C
Equotip (mobile hardness test)
... of pipe specimens, components and welds at high frequency (up to 160 Hz, depending on shape and stiffness of specimens).
Versatile methods for testing tensile and compression strength at elevated temperatures.
What we can do for you:
We conduct torsions tests on specimens of up to 1.5 meters in length and up to 60 mm in diameter.
We conduct standardized tests up to and including practical testing of components under realistic conditions, e.g.
We analyze fatigue strength in elastic-plastic cyclic deformation, whereby the size of the residual strains serves as a measure of the material damage. We do this with a strain-controlled Wöhler fatigue test.
As failure criterion, the number of cycles NA at crack formation is used in lieu of the number of cycles to failure NB. This test supplies the characteristic values of the material for the local calculation concept in the service life calculation of components.
With strain rate-dependent tensile tests, mechanical-technological properties such as strain limit, tensile strength and elastic modulus are characterized using stress-strain curves at different loading speeds. The measured values are recorded locally on the specimen by means of glued-on strain gages for precise force measurement as well as by an optical displacement measurement system for exact deformation measurement.
For the reliable evaluation of materials, we conduct creep tests with run times of up to 100,000 hours or more. The test results serve as a basis for the qualification of steel products, the analysis of the remaining service life of components in existing power stations and chemical plants, and the standardization of creep-resistant steels. We test materials in the as-delivered condition as well as components after having been subjected to operating loads. Along with the testing of rolled, forged and cast products, we also test welding filler materials and welds. In the analysis of creep results, we offer you scientific support.
