Thermo-Mechanical Testing System Combined Thermal and Mechanical Load Testing BI 7020 /40 T MF

Thermo-mechanical fatigue (TMF) testing is a complex and demanding strain controlled testing under programmable temperature variations. Instron offers a comprehensive solution for such testing that requires simulating of synchronised heating and cooling of specimens combined with mechanical loading with real time thermal strain compensation. TMF test systems are useful to test the operational efficiency and reliability of turbine components and structures when subjected to simultaneous changes in temperatures and load under laboratory controlled environment. Our state of the art digital servo used with TMF test system envisages independent induction heating and cooling through compressed air and also allows multi zone temperature tracking1. MTL32 proprietary algorithms used with our controllers permit precision heating rates up to 20 °C/s and cooling up to 10 °C/s.

Nano Test System BI-7000

The Bi-7000 Series test systems are possibly the most cost effective solution to mechanical testing requirements for strength, fatigue and fracture in the 25 kN force range of static and dynamic loading. These stand-alone test systems require no site preparation and no special utilities such as water cooling or even 3-phase supply. Just plug into the closest 15 A mains socket like any other office equipment and the system is ready for use. The systems are ideal for engineering colleges, R&D as well as industry users, searching for a lowcost solution in materials testing.

Noise Detection Test System BI-7086N

A typical passive vehicle damper is a compromise between handling properties of a car, passenger comfort and safety as well as NVH (Noise, Vibration, and Harshness). The dominant source of noise in today’s vehicles is from the suspension. This knocking noise (a transient of structural noise) is a result of the subtle vibration of chassis components. It occurs due to the vibrations of the piston rod in the shock absorber, making it a key element of a vehicle suspension system. The piston rod vibrations are caused by the continuous opening and closing motion of the valve, valve impacts, dry friction during stroking inversions and fluid cavitation. The purpose of our system (intended to measure the level of piston rod noise as a quality check of shock absorber in a production line) is ultimately to enhance overall vehicle performance, comfort and to facilitate a seamless transportation
