With our products you are ahead of your time

Improving the effectiveness and energy efficiency of power stations and turbine technology involves subjecting the materials used in their construction to ever higher pressures and temperatures. Creep tests for materials characterization are essential for the development of new materials resistant to these high temperatures.

The high precision and versatility of the creep-testing machines in our Kappa range makes them extremely cost-efficient. Other advantages include:

  • test frame with 4 steel columns for high lateral and axial stiffness
  • optimum quality machine components, including testXpert® II  testing software and testControl measurement and control electronics
  • the success of testXpert® II is based on over 80 years' experience of materials testing and over 10,000 successful testXpert® installations worldwide
  • testControl's intelligent sensor technology recognizes any sensors connected, including their defined force limits and calibration data
  • the Kappa range focuses on the essential requirements of creep testing: load, temperature, strain and data security.

Applications:

  • long-term creep tests, advanced creep tests (primarily with Kappa LA)
  • creep tests and extended creep tests; stress relaxation tests
  • tensile, compression and flexure loading of all types of material
