A complete testing system with hydraulic power pack

The HC Compact is a complete testing system with an extremely small space requirement. The low noise power pack forms the base support for the test frame, which reduces the machine’s footprint to a minimum. Combined with special sound insulation for the hydraulic power pack, the HC Compact is ideal for operation in a laboratory.

The HC Compact testing machine is available in two sizes. 

  • The HC Compact 10/25 kN is designed for fatigue tests on smaller components, down to and including biomedical tests. The machine is equipped with a T-slotted platform and the testing actuator is therefore located in the upper crosshead.
  • The HC Compact 50/100 kN is adapted for a full range of accessories for testing on composites, with which both static and dynamic tests can be performed. Due to the high stiffness of the load frame and easy connection of a high-temperature furnace, this machine is also optimally suited for LCF tests.

A temperature chamber can be installed on both models without a lot of effort. For applications with particularly high requirements on the load string alignment (e.g. LCF tests) the machines can be equipped with an optional alignment fixture.

Common fatigue tests

Materials and components may fail prematurely under oscillating loads. For this reason, the behavior of materials under alternating mechanical loading is an important decision criterion, for which the necessary data are obtained through testing.

There are two categories of fatigue in materials testing:

Low cycle fatigue (LCF) test

In the low cycle fatigue (LCF) test to ISO 12106 / ASTM E606, the specimen is tested at high cycle amplitudes and plastic deformation.
to Low cycle fatigue (LCF) test

High Cycle Fatigue Test / S-N Test

In the high cycle fatigue test (also S-N test) to DIN 50100 the specimen is tested at medium and low cycle amplitudes.
to High Cycle Fatigue Test / S-N Test
