Model FTX

Wire Fatigue Tester Model FTX is a designed to characterize the fatigue strength of small diameter wire using a rotating-beam test. The wire is subjected to a constant-magnitude, pure bending moment while it is rotated at a steady speed. This creates a fully reversed bending stress on the wire. The number of cycles is counted until a failure is detected and the machine stops. Throughout the test the specimen may be submerged in a temperature controlled water bath

Features:

  • Dual Servo-motors  Fatigue sample is driven on both ends with chucks that are directly driven by precision, electronically geared, servo-motors, resulting in quiet, reliable operation.
  • High-Speed Rotation  Standard model runs at speeds up to 10,000 rpm. High-speed model runs up to an incredible 37,000 rpm.
  • Automated Chuck Spacing  Input distance and chuck automatically moves into position.
  • Fast Wire Holding  Uses Blockwise easy-centering MicroChucks; wire can’t move out of the center of the chuck.
  • Temperature Control  Optional water bath keeps product at set temperature.
  • Quick Break Sensor Setup  Breakage sensor sets up in seconds to reliably turn the machine off when wire breaks.
  • AC Break Sensor  High Frequency AC signal prevents corrosion of submerged sample.
  • RS-485 Output  Monitor break status, cycle, and test parameters with supervisory system.
  • LCD Display  Shows accumulated cycles, speed, and chuck spacing at a glance.
