Linear Tensile Tester and Bend Proof Tester

New from 3SAE

(PresseBox) (Olching, ) LASER COMPONENTS' partner 3SAE introduces two new devices for testing the strengths of fibers after processing.

The linear tensile tester subjects fibers that have a glass diameter between 30 μm and >2 mm to linear tensile stress to test their tensile strength. Tensile strength is extremely important in the medical field and in applications in which a high stability is required of the fibers (e.g., in underwater cables). This tester makes it possible to accurately identify weak spots during fiber processing.

The new bend proof tester is used to test the bending strength of fibers with a thickness of between 250 μm and 1 mm. For each fiber diameter, optimized programs can be developed and stored to produce an objective and reproducible test.
