High Stiffness Machines

High force, high stiffness frames for low deflection applications

Not all test machines are used for dynamic applications, some tests such as gasket testing or rock mechanics require high forces to be applied, but the sample will deflect by a very small amount.

This requires a very stiff frame to reduce stored energy, so that failure stress on the sample can be removed instantaneously.

Phoenix has supplied machines for these applications to customers around the world, including intensifiers and bi-axial extensometers for tri-axial pressure cells (hook cells) used for geo-technical testing of rocks for the oil and gas industry.
