Alignment specimens

Miss-alignment of the test frames is one of the sources of errors in the fatigue and fracture testing. Being able to measure and control miss-alignment is a compliance condition of numerous standards  (ASTM E1012, GE450 (NADCAP), ISO TC 164SC5WG11).

We can provide standard and custom made alignment specimens for round, flat, threaded or smooth specimens having 8,9 or 12 strain-gauges distributed in two, or three zones respectively. Alignment specimens are machined from 4340 heat treated steel and can sustain a stress of up to 100 Ksi.
