Static Tension Fixtures

Wire Testing 

Wire test fixtures are used for the tensile testing of metal wires. They can be used to determine the modulus, yield strength, ultimate tensile strength and strain hardening cgaracteristics of metal wires. The wire is wrapped around a capstain which distributes the applied friction more evenly which helps prevent high stress areas. As the wire is pulled the area outside the capstain reduces helping to promote breakage outside of the capstain area.

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