Axial / Torsional Test SystemsMultiaxial states of stress and strain are very common in service life of components as wind turbine rotor blades, crankshaft, pressure vessels and many others. Consequently limiting the evaluation of a material characteristic to uniaxial tests may lead to misrepresentation of the behavior of a material in real constructions. Indeed, using more realistic loading conditions, i.e. biaxial conditions, will lead to a more accurate representation of the expected behavior of the structure in-service.
w+b offers a wide range of axial/torsional test systems for static and dynamic biaxial testing. The modular designs are available as electromechanical or servohydraulic systems.
LFM-L Series Low Capacity Single Column Axial / Torsional Test SystemOur LFM-L single column machines can be equipped with the add-on torsion drive to convert the machine from axial-only to a biaxial test system.
With a maximum axial force up to 25 kN and torque to 200 Nm this system is well suited for low-capacity materials and component testing.
Typical application includes testing of biomaterials and components, medical devices, automotive parts as well as consumer products.
