Floor standing Fatigue
Testing Systems

Servohydraulic Fatigue Series up to 5000kN

The 8801 and 8802 ServoHydraulic testing systems meet the challenging demands of both static and dynamic testing requirements. These systems provide complete testing solutions to satisfy the needs of advanced materials and component testing, and are ideally suited for quasi-static, high- and low-cycle fatigue, thermomechanical fatigue, and fracture mechanics testing.

The moving column design of the 8801 makes it very compact but versatile, a perfect all rounder system for a range of testing. The high stiffness design of the 8802, combined with the flexibility in size, actuator position and t slot table makes it suitable for a vast array of testing, particularly components or composites, requiring precise alignment.

They are both exceptionally versatile and reliable testing systems, suitable for testing a wide range of materials and applications. Their flexibility in size makes them ideal for installation within any laboratory environment, generally without the need for strengthened floors or raised ceiling heights.
