Static Tension Fixtures

Nickel Titanium Testing 

Nickel Titanium test fixtures are used for the tension testing of superelastic nickel-titanium (nitinol) materials. They can be used to determine the upper plateau strength, lower plateau strength, residual elongation, tensile strength, and elongation. The stent can either be a wire or a tubular specimen. The wire specimens are gripped in either a flat jaw grip or capstain and the tubular specimens are gripped using a pinned collet. An advantage of the tubular specimen approach is that for laser cut specimens the material in its normally processed state can be used.

Contact us with your specific test requirements and we will provide an estimate for creating the desired tension you are looking for.
