Fracture Diagnostics International's Rising Step Load™ Incremental Step Load Test Laboratory
Model FDI 1200-B Rising Step LoadTM Bend Test System
Quality Monitoring Using a Bending Moment
This unit utilizes a constant displacement bending arm precisely controlled through software developed especially for this equipment. Although designed for ASTM F519 testing, by combining its use of 4-Point Bending and various fixtures, the versatile FDI 1200-B test system can perform a broad variety of tests, including quality control tests for plating in bending on single edged notched square bars, and with the right fixtures, the same bend frame can test actual parts such as Fasteners, even C-Rings in compression and Tensile Coupons in tension!
With the use of Certified Test Specimen, in 24 HOURS, you can QUANTITATIVLY measure the hydrogen generated by any specific plating process QUICKLY giving you useful information to help you improve the quality of your parts or plating baths.
The software uses a graphical interface combining a unique control of all testing parameters and simplicity of operation. Data generated can be filed into and analyzed by many standard data base programs.
The actual bending frame is designed as a desktop unit and can be provided with several units custom mounted in a single cabinet.
This unit comes with a motor controller, a calibrated load cell, operating software, a computer capable of running multiple FDI Test Systems at the same time, and a 2-day installation and demonstration. An optional operating instruction course is also available.
