TENSILE TESTING — IT’S MAKE OR BREAK

The categorisation of screws, nuts and metallic components into strength classes forms the basis for a targeted and appropriate application.

To determine important parameters, such as tensile strength and yield point, we subject screws, nuts and other metallic components to forces up to 60 tons in our twin-column tensile testing machine. During this process, specimens are loaded until they break or until the specified test force is reached. Using the angular tensile test, we can also test finished screws where the transition radius is exposed to additional stresses. In addition to screws up to M30 (8.8) and nuts up to M33 (10), we also offer tensile testing for machined specimens.

Standardised tensile testing in line with:

  • DIN EN ISO 6892-1
  • DIN EN ISO 898-1
  • DIN EN ISO 898-2
