Testing SystemThe ETMT 8800 multifunctional testing system is ideally suited for testing metals and other conductive materials in industries ranging from metal processing and production to advanced engineering. Combined with a direct resistance heating system, the ETMT 8800 offers full reverse stress loading to 3 kN and unrivalled thermo-mechanical capabilities up to 1500°C (2732°F). It is ideal for measuring mechanical and physical properties and micro-structural stability under thermal pressure. Using miniature test pieces, the ETMT 8800 can achieve fatigue loading rates from 20 N/sec to 1000 N/sec and heating rates up to 200°C/sec. The test system is also designed to study thermo-mechanical fatigue properties of nickel-based superalloys, hard metals (such as tungsten carbide) and lead-free solders. It can also be used to determine the resistivity, thermal expansion coefficients and phase transformations in materials including steels and titanium alloys.
