Stiff Frames for High-Strength Materials Pre-loaded bearings and precision ball screws, a thick crosshead and base beam, and low-stretch drive belts contribute to better performance by producing more accurate modulus and strain values and minimizing the energy stored during a test. This is especially evident when testing high-strength materials such as aerospace composites, metal alloys, and crystalline polymers. Precision Guidance for Alignment and Bending When performing a uniaxial test, accurate stress and strain results can only be achieved with a system that contains robust, precise guidance...
