Machines

The Phoenix Materials Testing Lab is equipped with hydraulic test machines with capacities ranging from 120N up to 1.6MN.

The Bench top test machine (2kN-120N) can operate at frequencies of up to 200Hz, or single shot tests at up to 7ms-s, and has been used for test as varied as dispensing pre-filled syringes to testing of electrical connectors.

This machine is ideally suited to Small Sample Testing Techniques and has been used for carrying out Small Punch Creep Testing, as well as elevated temperature three and four point bend testing of miniaturised ceramic and high temperature alloy samples.

The 1.6MN test frame has four columns with a clearance of 560mm x 750mm, and vertical daylight of 1750mm enabling testing of large samples and assemblies.
