Solar Atmospheres of Western PA installed a second machining center to support its newest service, tensile testing. The company added a fully programmable 8,100-RPM Haas VF2 milling center to support the machining of flat tensile specimens. This machining ability fully complements the function of the 10,000-PSI hydraulic jaw that is an integral component of the Tinius Olsen 300SL tensile machine. These large hydraulic jaws can grip either threaded-round or flat specimens.

Solar Atmospheres is Nadcap and Boeing approved for all room-temperature tensile testing.
