Compression tests on rock specimens for load, displacement or deformation control in the closed loop of the servo-hydraulic on: cylindrical rock specimens of granite, basalt etc. In the ratio 2:1 with Ø 25,4 / 50,8 / 76,2 / 101,6 / 127 / 152,4 mm
Tensile, compression and bending tests each according to accessories. Strength test – fatigue strength under fluctuating stresses with centric initial load / compression rupture test / lateral resistance test for the load, displacement or deformation control – depending on the level of attachments – in the closed loop of the servo-hydraulic with a max. test frequency: 5 Hz on: Elastomer bearings, concrete cubes, concrete cylinders, plates
Determining the flexural strength of glass used in the building trade and the crushing resistance of glass (optional) on: single pane safety glass - ESG, partly toughened glass – TVG, compound glass - VSG
Tensile strength test on high-voltage insulators. Sturdy profile machine L-form frame. The work table has a machined surface with T-slots. The work table can be rotated by 4 x 90°. Built-in test cylinder with adjustable height.
Testing metallic materials includes numerous mechanical-technological test methods. Herewith specific material properties are determined and it can be checked whether the demand on usage properties are being met.
With testing machines from FORM + TEST, standard tests such as tensile tests, compression tests and bending tests can be carried out, as well as application-specific test scenarios.
The reliable test technology ensures a high sample throughput and test results that are repeatable at any time. The simple operation of the testing technology enables the best possible user-friendliness for fast training and test implementation.
Decades of experience in the rock testing field mean that FORM+TEST is a sought-after partner for geoscience. Our
test solutions can determine typical geomechanical properties like uniaxial compressive strength and elasticity, or can
simulate compression and temperature conditions on test specimens. Servohydraulic systems with high test loads
are used in combination with the most exacting measuring technology. The interplay of the individual components plays
a crucial role in the reliability of the results. This is a benefit, for example, to energy companies, mine operators and
research facilities when they are investigating deposits.
Destructive rope testing includes investigations to determine the service life of wire and fibre ropes in a wide variety of applications. Form + Test Seidner & Co. GmbH offers bending machines, tensile testing machines and tensile-sleeper testing machines for standard tests.
Static calculation of the bending tensile strength on sleepers (s.above) taking into account the standard requirements on: concrete sleepers for track and points, prestressed concrete-monobloc sleepers, prestressed concrete sleepers for points and crossings, special forms
For triaxial stress-strain experiments on cylindrical specimens: triaxial multistage tests to examine the post-failure reaction, stabilizing or intermittently increasing the surface pressure is possible. The rise in the axial tension takes the path of force or is expansion-controlled. For:
cylindrical rock and soil cores with a length/diameter ratio of 2:1
Today, high demands are placed on concrete. It is therefore of crucial importance to determine the water penetration depth of the material for the respective application. FORM + TEST Testing machines manufactures test systems which meet the requirements of the water penetration test. On concrete cubes or concrete cylinders. The water penetration depth can be tested according to DIN EN 12390-8 by our standard design.
Wood is not only a traditional resource, but is becoming increasingly important as a building material of the future. In its application as a structural material, wood offers many advantages over steel and concrete buildings. For example, the specific strength is very high.
