For the determination of the mechanical properties of aluminium deformation-controlled compression and strain tests are requested. The maximum force during the deformation of the material is measured and a visual inspection of the sample deformation is being done.
For these tests the extremely stiff ToniNORM 600-2000 kN capacity load frames with a fixed mounted upper pressure plate are standard. The measurement of the deformation is effected by an inductive piston path transducer. The load pace for this application lies in the range of 100 mm/min- to 300 mm/min in flexure.
