Our mechanical testing systems are being designed to make mechanical testing simpler, faster and more intuitive, providing our clients with material insights not otherwise obtainable. They are built intelligently, with integration and automation at the forefront of their development. They are Industry 4.0 ready.
We use our products to help companies like yours measure the mechanical properties of their materials more quickly, and more flexibly than they can with conventional testing methods.
We provide a rapid and rigorous technical support service to customers across the world. We also offer R&D support services through access to our team of world-leading materials scientists.
We are an expert team of materials scientists with high-level expertise in advanced numerical modelling and data science techniques. We can be relied upon to deliver to our clients the state-of-the-art mechanical testing solutions that are needed to maintain a competitive advantage.
“This technology and this team have the potential to fundamentally change the way that we think about mechanical testing. Faster, simpler and more insightful testing will be appealing to all industries with an interest in measuring the strength of their materials”
Executive Vice President | Element Materials Technology
Measuring the mechanical properties of AM materials has historically been very difficult and very expensive. Indentation Plastometry is the simplest solution to this broad industry challenge.
This investigation relates to two types of sample supplied by Energy Densification Systems. These were both a shaped component of Hardox steel, with and without a cermet insert brazed into it. Via PIP testing it was possible to obtain stress-strain relationships for local areas of the component. The heat treatment associated with the brazing process (which was not revealed to PLX) induced significant changes in the stress/strain responses of all locations.
In this study we use PIP testing to spatially map the variations in mechanical properties across a large forged aluminum component.
