The bending test or bending tensile test is a proven test method when it comes to the destructive testing of materials. Various types of bending tests are common in practice. They mainly differ in the sample storage and the number of load introductions.
To determine the compressive strength of materials outside of building material testing, we offer standard machines or compression testing machines adapted to the application. Depending on the design, these can also be used for other tests or for multi-axial tests. Combined solutions or machines for press-fit or compression tests.
Creep rupture testing records the behaviour of materials under constant test loads and high temperatures over longer periods
Dynamic cyclic test methods for determining the lifetime of components, test specimens and structural elements.
Dynamic testing systems of various designs are used to test material fatigue / fatigue strength on materials and components. It is important that the components are designed to be fatigue-resistant in order to be able to massively counteract the cyclic loads in such fatigue tests and endurance tests.
Testing the water permeability at 0.5 or 1.0 bar internal pressure on: Tubes and preformed parts made of concrete, steel-fibre concrete and reinforced concrete
Various materials, parts and components are subjected to loads with several test axes in order to better simulate tests and conditions. For the verification of the test specifications, multi-axis testing machines and special test benches are possible, which are adapted to the later use.
Methods for determining shear behaviour are mainly used for testing thermal insulation materials and building materials in the building industry. The sample arrangement is specified in the relevant standards. The standard-compliant test setup in combination with the testing machine and sample handling are decisive for user-friendly operation.
Torsion testing machines or test benches combined with torsion drives are used for angle of rotation measurements over a defined torque range on materials and components in many branches of industry. In order to meet the high requirements regarding torque, accuracy and reproducibility, high-quality components are used.
