High temperature fatigue testing systems include Low Cycle Fatigue (LCF), Thermomechanical Fatigue (TMF) and Electro-Thermal Mechanical Testing (ETMT) systems. LCF systems assess the performance of materials at elevated isothermal conditions when subjected to high loads and plastic deformations. TMF and ETMT systems simulate the complex effects of thermal cycling combined with mechanical loading, normally experienced by gas turbines and similar equipment during operation. All Instron high temperature fatigue testing systems are fully integrated packages that allow our customers to carry out testing quickly and efficiently, in compliance with all relevant standards.
Thermomechanical Fatigue (TMF)
Instron Thermomechanical Fatigue (TMF) testing system is a modified 8801 servohydraulic test frame that provides effortless analysis of combined thermal and mechanical loading cycles of high-performance materials.
Electro-Thermal Mechanical Testing (ETMT)
Instron's Electro-Thermal Mechanical Testing System can measure mechanical and physical properties and micro-structural stability with thermal exposure.
