Fatigue Testing Machine
DEVCO develops servo-hydraulic systems for accurate and reliable fatigue tests.
In our machines we use hydrostatic type custom made actuators that minimize friction and allow to perform high-frequency tests up to 600 Hz (with a load of 10 kN).
Thanks to these performances our machines are used in high standard laboratories to perform testing of materials and components used in advanced applications.
In order to ensure the long-life of the tested material, a fatigue testing machine requires high-frequency equipment. Actually, a 109 cycles test performed with a traditional 50 Hz fatigue testing machine requires more than 7 months.
The same fatigue test performed with a high-frequency 600 Hz fatigue testing machine would take only 19 days.
Even for long-time tests, our machines maintain a high-fidelity waveform while running at a high frequency.
According to the customers’ needs, we can provide testing machines with static load from 5 to 1000 kN with standard waveforms (sine, ramp, square) or programmable ones.
