Apollo-Clad houses a full metallurgical laboratory with a wide range of testing equipment.

All equipment is independently calibrated and certified 

Capabilities include (but not limited to):

  • Tensile testing
  • Charpy impact testing
  • Hardness testing
    • Rockwell
    • Vickers microhardness
  • Microstructural analysis
  • Residual stress testing

 

 

Rotating Bending Fatigue Tester.

Just recently, we have designed, manufactured and tested the world’s first large scale rotating fatigue tester.

 

  • Test size and surface finish effects without the need for scaling factors
    • Stress state distribution, surface condition, grain structure
  • Test effects of surface treatments
    • Data specific to design and application
  • 2.75″ DIA reduced section – constant stress design
    • Conventional test machines use 0.3″ DIA maximum
  • 50,000 lb applied load capability
    • Stress determined by sample design
  • Position controlled machine design
    • Mechanically locked in place
  • Constant Stress Design allows for testing of large surface area
    • Cantilever machines only critically stress one narrow region
  • Critically stressed region
    • Extends much deeper into test sample than conventional geometry test samples
