Rotating Beam Fatigue testing applies bending stress to a round specimen in constant rotation and allows researchers and product designers to perform fatigue testing at higher frequencies while saving capital expenses.
For manufacturers to verify that nasopharyngeal swabs utilized for COVID-19 testing are both safe and effective, they must be mechanically tested using a materials testing system.
University of Connecticut utilizes ADMET eXpert 1655 servohydraulic testing machine for their mechanical testing needs. In the video below, Adam Wentworth talks about hydraulic wedge grips and gives tips on the grip operation.
If it was easy and cost effective to perform fatigue testing, everyone would do it. Right? Fatigue testing allows manufacturers and researchers to get a critical understanding of how a material or component will perform in real-world loading scenarios over the course of time. This is extremely important for certain industries like aerospace and automotive. However, manufacturers and researchers alike face a serious dilemma when it comes to being able to execute reliable and efficient fatigue test results.
Imagine a window covered in solar panels that is still completley translucent or a jacket lined by solar panels that bend like fabric. ADMET recently worked with a leading university that was conducting research on a new type of photovoltaic (sol...
