Embedded Tensile Strenght Test Machine FM1000 – An Upgrade of Measurement and Control


Article Preview

In order to compare the strengths of various materials it is necessary to carry out a standard form of test to establish their relative properties. The tensile test, compression test, bending, shearing and torsion tests are used for examining mechanical properties of biological materials. Except for non-destructive methods (optical, electromagnetic, sonic, thermal, infrared), destructive testing is another very important tool for the assessment of biomechanical properties and behavior of biomedical materials. The tensile strength test is one of the most common testing methods, which uses specific testing machines. Many tensile testing machines are equipped to plot a curve which shows the load or stress and the strain or movement that occurs during the test operation. In the testing operation, the load is increased gradually and the specimen will stretch or elongate in proportion to the tensile load. The load cells and extensometers measure the key parameters of force and deformation. The presented paper is a report which describes a specific and unique technical solution and upgrade of FM 1000 machine from the control and output processing point of view. Modern sensoric systems and I/O modules were used and custom software was developed. The fu
