Tensile Bend/Stretch Test Machine
The purpose of this machine design was to simulate a sample flexing over the bow of a ship at sea. The machine was able to apply 500 tonnes to the sample over a set of radii.
All AJT test machines are fitted with our own in house manufactured load cell mounted at the pulling clevis, featuring a multi bridge strain guage, temperature compensation and close zero balance calibrated in accordance with ISO 7500-1:2004.
Control of this machine was by PC which logged load, time and extension.
