MAIN

ADDITIONAL EQUIPMENT AND ACCESSORIES FOR MECHANICAL TESTS

System for tests of ceramics UNIK – BIKINT

  • The system is intended for performing  tests of ceramics and other brittle nonmetallic materials with unspecialized test machines.

  • It includes a precision loading unit (it can be set in a test machine of any type, which provides application of compressive forces) and allows to carry out tests of specimens in 3- or 4-point bending according to various standards.

  • The stand-alone measurement system  includes subunits for measuring loads and deflections (deformation)  with a relative error of measurements no worse than ±1%, and also a subunit for registration of acoustic emission parameters accompanying deformation and fracture of materials.

  • The system can be equipped with a personal computer and the appropriate software for automatic processing of experimental information

 

 

Small-size testing machine MICROTEST - 01
  • It is built in a scanning electronic microscope.

  • It is intended for studying processes of deformation and fracture. of materials at  microstructure level under conditions of controllable mechanical loading.

  • Contains a loading unit with the maximum load applied to a specimen - 500 N, load measurement unit (the measurement error of no more than ± 0.5 %) , deflection measurement unit (the measurements error of no more than ± 1 %), and a unit for positioning of a specimen in the working area of the microscope.

  • Control modes: manual or automated with a personal computer.

 


Linear displacement measuring system  "Discon-NT"
  • It is intended for precise measuring  of linear elongation of specimens (metal, rubber, etc.) under tension testing  at room temperature.
  • Includes two sensors of  absolute angle displacements   M-600 (Megatron firm).
  • Elongation measuring range from 0 up to 500 mm.
  • Elongation resolution 0.5 μ. 
  • Measuring is provided by personal computer via RS-232.



Measuring sensors and accessories

Load cells and gauges for displacement measurements, special grips for testing specimens and structural elements at high and low temperatures, other specialized equipment and accessories.

 



System "RESURS " for estimation of remaining life of structures 

Automated system "RESURS " has been developed for the control of the stress condition and estimation of residual life for structural elements of the main unit (MU) of the space station "MIR " during its operation. The System "RESURS " consists of: fatigue damage gauges, cable network, blocks of switching, measuring block. Fatigue damage gauges are set in dangerous places of a structure at the beginning of its operation and intended for registration of local effective stresses. The principle of their operation is based on irreversible changes of specific electric resistance of the gauge metal under the action of cyclic deformations. The system    " RESURS" allows to carry out measurements using a set of gauges at the end of different stages of the MU operation (pressurization, transportation etc.), and also periodically during all orbital flight.
The system "RESURS" can be used for the control of the stress condition and diagnostics of  remaining life of vital structural elements and structures in aviation, space industry and engineering.
