Structural Testing from SGS-ATE
Specialized testing and analysis for component level fatigue, strength, and durability.
Since 2001 SGS-ATE has been supporting a wide range industries performing structural testing services using servo hydraulic actuators with and without environmental conditions.
Structural Testing is used to verify the static strength or fatigue strength of a particular component by applying measured loads to the test sample. Testing can be done to failure or to fulfill a specific engineering requirement. Another common practice is to support analytical engineering and validate finite element analysis (FEA) / model predictions.
Fatigue Testing is performed with the objective of determining the relationship between the stress range and the number of times it can be applied before causing failure.
SGS-ATE has successfully completed thousands of structural and fatigue tests on items ranging in size and complexity from simple coupons to complex body structurers and suspension components.
Custom frames and fixtures, hydraulic actuators, servo-controlled and pressure-controlled load applications, strain gauge data acquisition and deflection measurements are all among the tools and methods available to help test the strength of your product.
SGS-ATE has a centralized hydraulic power unit capable of supplying 400 GPM of hydraulic fluid at 3,000 psi pressure, 40 channels of MTS controls and actuators supporting loads to 50,000 lbs for ultimate strength testing or fatigue testing.
We have a wide range of generic test fixtures that can adapt to your components thus assisting with reducing fixture cost and expediting test set-up. We also have the engineering and design capability to design and fabricate specialized test fixtures to test any type of component.
SGS-ATE can provide you with the necessary structural testing and fatigue testing equipment and personnel to test the design and manufacturing integrity of your product. Call upon our vast experience and allow us to explain our testing services in detail.
SGS ATE has the experience to get the job done right the first time... On-time.
