What challenges and testing requirements have been solved?
is a crucial part of the quality control system and of upmost importance especially
for Aerospace & Defense sector. The testing laboratory is well-equipped with
a range of up-to-date testing machines including a 100kN materials testing
machine (UTM) for composite testing from ZwickRoell. The modular testing system
of ZwickRoell assures 9 types of tests according to 12 test standards. This
100kN UTM with body over wedge grips & most advanced automatic makroXtens
II extensometer assures reliable test results for their production. The
intelligent makroXtens II extensometer is already calibrated from a measurement
travel of 20 mµ in class 0.5 & can be used up to specimen break. The
extensometer fulfills the stringent test requirements of ISO 527 with maximum
error of ±1 µm in the differential displacement measurement between two measurement
points in the range of 20 µm to 200 µm, fully fulfilling the additional
requirement stipulated by ISO 527-1 (2011). The existing makroXtens II
extensometer can also be used for high temperature testing with full compliance
to test requirements of ISO 527-1. This UTM has longer test height of 1755 mm
that allows user to go for testing at high temperature in future.
