Pressure test on components
In addition to tensile loading, components can also be subjected to compressive loading. For this purpose, the components are fixed in a specimen grip of the universal tensile machine and compressed at a defined speed until they break. The force absorbed is determined
Depending on the component to be tested, various specimen grips are required to enable a uniform compressive load to be applied to the component. These can be manufactured in the BARLOG Plastics test laboratory according to customer and application requirements.
Compression tests, like tensile tests, are important methods for assuring the quality of components.
