Fatigue tester

  • 15-Jun-2010 01:55 EDT

Shimadzu Scientific Instruments’ EMT series Servopulser fatigue testing machine operates exclusively on electrical power and does not generate waste oil or contaminate surrounding lab areas. With closed-loop (servo) control, the machine allows stable loading over a range of test forces and displacements. This is ideal for dynamic or static testing of resins, rubbers, biological samples, and automotive and electronic parts. The testers can perform fast, large movements with sine wave cycle testing at speeds up to 2 m/s. They offer stroke lengths up to ±50 mm and ±20 µm displacement amplitude at 200 Hz frequencies. The 24-bit rangeless Servo Controller 4830 provides high-resolution test force and movement measurements, including offset loads and contact tests, and various test procedures.

The fusing of emerging technologies from the aerospace materials sector and biological sciences are now, for the first time, heading toward the prospect of growing parts, systems, and, ultimately, perhaps whole aircraft.
NRL scientists have demonstrated metallic spin filtering at room temperature using ferromagnet-graphene-ferromagnet thin film junction devices.
Industrial aluminum slabs are typically produced by blending small amounts of copper or manganese in a reservoir of molten aluminum that is rapidly cooled, a process known as direct-chill casting. Variations in the way these elements solidify can yield uneven results that weaken the final product.
