The laboratory of mechanical properties in Chongqing is equipped with two universal testing machines from ZwickRoell. The Z250 SH and Z050 TH are used for performance testing of metals, guide material selection and application, new process validation, on-site material management, and quality control.
The Z050 TH is a modestly equipped testing system for 3-point flexure and compression tests at room temperature, for a maximum force of 50 kN. The Z250 SH is a fully equipped testing system, which allows for additional tensile tests at a temperature range of -80°C to 1,200°C. This system is equipped with a high-temperature furnace, a temperature chamber, and a laserXtens 2-120 HP/TZ. This flexible non-contact extensometer guarantees precise strain measurement of specimens with different shapes, dimensions and sizes at room temperature, or in combination with the high-temperature furnace (200°C to 1,200°C), or the temperature chamber (-80°C to 200°C).
