Fatigue testing is a vital part of quality control for an extensive bracket of industries. ADMET has worked with a wide range of technology companies, universities, biomedical firms, research laboratories, and material manufacturers to ensure their products can stand the test of time.
Fatigue refers to the physical and mechanical damage that takes place after a material has been subject to cyclic or repeated loading and unloading. For a given force amplitude, when the number of applied cycles reaches a particular threshold, damage will occur to the specimen. At first, microscopic cracks appear. The cracks then grow as the number of applied cycles increases until the material fractures.
International standards delineate fatigue life as the number of stress cycles that a specimen can endure before failure. ADMET fatigue testing machines adhere to ASTM and ISO standards and are capable of performing an unlimited number of loading cycles on a material.
Our systems are able to conduct dynamic fatigue tests on biomaterials, composites, metals, textiles, plastics, adhesives, medical devices, implants, and other materials. All ADMET fatigue testing systems come equipped with MTESTQuattro, a PC-based dynamic controller.
