100% Tensile testing for specialist alloys

13 May 2008

Alloy Wire International, a manufacturer of precision cold drawn round wire, flat wire and shaped wire, is using a PC-controlled universal materials testing machine from Lloyd Instruments as part of its comprehensive quality assurance procedure. Every coil of wire is subject to tensile testing prior to dispatch.

Alloy Wire International specialises in the production of high performance nickel, cobalt and titanium alloys for use in any environment that requires resistance to very high temperatures and corrosion but where the mechanical properties of the metal must be retained. The materials are frequently used in the manufacture of springs, seals, fasteners and many other applications, used in a variety of industries such as aerospace, petrochemical, medical and nuclear.

Tensile tests are performed using a Lloyd Instruments EZ50 50 kN twin column universal materials testing machine equipped with NEXYGEN MT control and data analysis software. NEXYGEN MT features a vast library of international standard tests for many different applications, including EN, BS and ASTM standards. However, the system can also be configured to carry out user specified tests. Tests can be carried out on material both before and after heat treatment.
