Tensile Testing Shop

The long-history of expertise developed by Prototype & Test Center is available to the space industry. Within this Center we have a Tensile Testing Shop delivering to the leading players in aeronautical structures such as Airbus, Bombardier, Dassault, Embraer, Pilatus, ...
The 8-single frame tensile test machines (MTS & Instron) are able to deliver results for tensile, compression, bending and shear force tests, after specimen conditioning or impact. Instrumentation, up to 180 channels, provide accurate strain and displacement recordings. Environmental chambers mounted to the tensile testing machines enable testing between -150°C and 350 °C.
Besides standard tooling per ASTM or EN or AITM, customization of loading or measurement devices is possible to match your specific needs *
* List of current norms is coming soon on www.testcenter.sonaca.com
