After producing aircrafts and automobiles with aluminum, manufacturers test the fracture toughness with a 8801 system with Fracture Toughness software.
Different sized shoulder-end metals are needed to tensile test to ASTM E8 and A370 standards, and Split Insert Tensile Holders add ease to changing the inserts.
Bluehill software calculates the n-value of metallic materials automatically to ISO, ASTM, and JIS standards.
Non-contracting strain measurement using the Advanced Video Extensometer 2 allows for an easier workflow.
Tension Testing of Pipe and Tube to ASTM A370, ISO 6892-1, API5L, and ISO 3183
To test Type A, B, or C gray iron following ASTM A48, use an Industrial Series 300LX load frame with split sleeve shouldered end specimen holders made for gray iron.
With the Industrial Series 300LX fame and USTA adapters, perform tensile testing of ductile iron like sewer pipes in accordance with ASTM A736.
With temperature tension tests of metals to calculate tensile strength, yield strength, and elongation or reduction, follow ASTM E21 to meet modern requirements.
To follow ASTM F2516-14, the Advanced Video Extensometer allows for accurate strain measurement of Nitinol wire for biomedical uses without common failures.
ANSI/AWS B4.0 produces guidelines for mechanical testing of welds, including tensile testing to determine the Ultimate Tensile Strength.
To determine the ductility and effectiveness of the weld and weld process, a dual space DX or HDX load frame with a bend fixture follows testing requirements.
While a high temperature test took place inside an environmental chamber, a specially designed ball indent test fixture adjusted the pushrods.
A SATEC Series LX or KN Model Machine follow IS 1608 to determine the maximum force, tensile strength, and total elongation for metallic materials.
Axial and transverse extensometers with Bluehill Universal software can perform ISO, ASTM, and JIS tests to determine the plastic strain ratio, or the r-value, of metallic materials.
For tensile testing of metallic materials, ISO 6892-1:2016 has the options to focus on strain rate (Method A) or stress rate (Method B) to strain a specimen to failure.
To be NADCAP compliant, aerospace companies need to pass a checklist for mechanical tensile testing to ensure correct alignment.
Orthopedic micro-implants used to treat bone problems and soft tissue injuries need to be tested in simulated loading conditions to prevent failure.
For a manufacturers testing steel cord, Instron has specialized grips to simplify testing.
