Cloud-based collection, storage, and analysis of PIP test data
In collaboration with Alloyed, we explore how mechanical properties differ across sections of an additively manufactured part and discover how testing directly on a part ensures that AM designs will deliver performance that users can rely on.
The objective of this case study was to obtain accurate mechanical testing data for a small, extruded aluminium part from a bike rim, provided by Spur, using PIP testing. If successful, it would demonstrate a practical way of obtaining key data for small and complex components with minimal processing and turnaround times.
In collaboration with the University of Limerick, this case study investigates the suitability of PIP testing to explore the detection of property variations in parts produced through additive manufacturing.
We understand the importance of experimental test equipment and the role it can play in ground-breaking research. We're here to help.
