ANSI/AWS B4.0 produces guidelines for mechanical testing of welds, including tensile testing to determine the Ultimate Tensile Strength.
To test Type A, B, or C gray iron following ASTM A48, use an Industrial Series 300LX load frame with split sleeve shouldered end specimen holders made for gray iron.
With the Industrial Series 300LX fame and USTA adapters, perform tensile testing of ductile iron like sewer pipes in accordance with ASTM A736.
With temperature tension tests of metals to calculate tensile strength, yield strength, and elongation or reduction, follow ASTM E21 to meet modern requirements.
The AutoX 750 and AVE can be used for tensile testing metallic materials to ASTM E8 standards and reduce the operator interaction with the specimen.
The Advanced Video Extensometer allows for consistent sheet metal tensile testing when the specimen is too thin for a clip-on extensometer.
To follow ASTM E8, specific dimensions and gripping solutions need to be used in tension testing of metallic materials like sheets, wires, and pipes.
Universal Spherical Tension Adapters used with the Industrial Series 300 LX load frame allow for testing of shouldered end specimens and follow ASTM E8.
Instron assisted a steel manufacturer with a 5985 testing system and model SF-16 split furnace to perform tensile tests to a specimen at a high temperature.
Different sized shoulder-end metals are needed to tensile test to ASTM E8 and A370 standards, and Split Insert Tensile Holders add ease to changing the inserts.
Orthopedic micro-implants used to treat bone problems and soft tissue injuries need to be tested in simulated loading conditions to prevent failure.
