Different Types Of Tensile Testers We Can Calibrate

We have the expertise and capability to calibrate all types of tensile testers currently available. These include hydraulic tensile testers, electromechanical tensile testers and universal testing machines (UTMs).

Hydraulic tensile testers are designed to apply force to a specimen using hydraulic fluid. Our calibration process ensures that the load cell, displacement readings and speed are accurate and consistent, so you can be confident that your results are reliable.

Electromechanical tensile testers use an electric motor to apply force to the specimen. Our calibration service includes verifying the accuracy of the motor control system, load cell, and other critical components to ensure the equipment functions optimally.

Universal testing machines (UTMs) are versatile testers that can perform multiple tests, including tensile, compression, and bending tests. Our calibration service includes verifying the accuracy of the load cell, displacement , and other critical components to ensure that the equipment provides accurate and consistent results across all test modes.

AML Instruments have the expertise and experience to calibrate all tensile testers, ensuring that your equipment provides accurate and reliable results, allowing you to make informed decisions based on high-quality data.

What Are the Benefits of Regular Calibration?

Regular calibration of your testing machine is essential to ensure that the equipment operates within the prescribed tolerances and provides accurate and reliable results. There are several benefits to regular calibration, including the following:

  1. Improved accuracy and consistency: Regular calibration ensures that your tensile tester provides accurate and consistent results. This is important for maintaining the highest quality control standards and ensuring your products meet the required specifications.
  2. Reduced downtime and costs: Regular calibration can help detect potential issues before they become significant problems, reducing downtime and maintenance costs. You can prevent costly repairs and equipment failures by identifying and resolving calibration issues early.
  3. Compliance with industry standards: Regular calibration is often a requirement for compliance with industry standards and regulations. Maintaining compliance can avoid penalties, fines, and legal action and ensure that your products meet the required safety and quality standards.
  4. Improved product quality and reliability: Regular calibration can help improve product quality and reliability by ensuring that the materials and components meet the required specifications. This can help prevent defects, product failures, and recalls, improving customer satisfaction and brand reputation.
  5. Peace of mind: Regular calibration provides peace of mind, knowing that your equipment is operating optimally and providing accurate and reliable results. This allows you to make informed decisions based on high-quality data, reducing the risk of errors and costly mistakes.

Tensile Testing Calibration Standards

Several common tensile testing calibration standards are used in various industries to ensure consistent and accurate testing results. Organizations such as ASTM International and ISO develop and maintain these standards.

ISO 7500-1:2018

Metallic materials — Calibration and verification of static uniaxial testing machines — Part 1: Tension/compression testing machines — Calibration and verification of the force-measuring system

ASTM E4-21

Standard Practices For Force Calibration And Verification Of Testing Machines

At AML Instruments, we have extensive knowledge and experience in complying with these standards. We can provide calibration services to ensure your equipment operates optimally and provides accurate and reliable results.

Steps of Tensile Tester Calibration Procedure

Below is an online of the process AML Instruments uses to calibrate a tensile tester/universal testing machine.

  1. Verify the accuracy of all the load cells: The load cell is the most critical component of the tensile tester. The load cell is usually subjected to a known load to verify its accuracy, and its output is compared to the expected value. This is typically done using a load cell or mass set which is calibrated to ISO 376
  2. Check the calibration of the extensometer: The extensometer measures the elongation of the specimen during the tensile test. The extensometer must be calibrated periodically using a specialist calibration device to ensure accurate measurements.
  3. Verify the calibration of the cross head displacement sensor: The displacement sensor measures the movement of the crosshead during the test. Calibration of the displacement sensor is essential to ensure accurate measurement of elongation where a extensometer is not used
  4. Calibrate the test speed: The test speed determines how quickly the load is applied to the specimen. It is essential to calibrate the test speed to ensure accurate and consistent results.
  5. Calibrate the temperature control: If the tensile tester has a thermal chamber the temperature control is calibrated, it is essential to calibrate it to ensure accurate and consistent results.
  6. Record and analyse calibration results: After completing the calibration process, it is essential to record and analyse the results to identify any issues or deviations from expected values. If any issues are identified, they must be addressed promptly to ensure the accuracy and reliability of the tensile tester.

Calibrating a tensile tester involves verifying and calibrating critical components such as the load cell, extensometer, displacement sensor, test speed, and temperature control, recording and analysing calibration results, and performing a sample tensile test to ensure accurate and reliable results to avoid manufacturing errors.
