Universal testing machine
The universal testing machine is used to get information on a materials yield strength and tensile strenght, the modulus of elasticity as well as a materials strength in terms of bending and compression. That is done by testing like tensile testing, bending testing and comression testing.
- We have equipment to facilitate testing at elevated temperature up to 150 °C to study how material properties are effected by temperature.
By designing and manufacturing fixtures and mounting adapters to fit a samples geometry and composition it is possible to perform testing on paper, plastics and other material sensitive to mounting with sharp angles.
Instrument: Universal testing machine Inspekt Retrofit 100kN
Manufacturer: Hegewald & Peschke
Measures: Load (stress) and strain
Result: stress-strain curve, yield strength, tensile strength, modulus of elasticity, static strength
stress-strain curve from tensile test of cast iron.
