ASTM A and ISO address the requirements for simple torsion (twist) testing of metallic wire. Both testing standards require that a wire specimen be. This standard is issued under the fixed designation A ; the number 1 This test method is under the jurisdiction of ASTM Committee A01 on Steel,. Stainless . ASTM A covers torsion testing of wire. ASTM A provides knowledge of the ductility of a wire when under torsion loading. A torsional test machine with.

Email addresses must contain the symbol. How can we help you? This plot will show where the wire yielded during the twist test, as well as the failure point and profile.
ASTM A938 Torsional Test of Wire
Discover simpler and smarter testing with features such as pre-loaded test methods, QuickTest in seconds, enhanced data exporting: MicroTorsion Series As the preferred solution for low-force torsion testing and component in-service simulation, the MT MicroTorsion Series test wires, fasteners, switches, and springs in the biomedical, automotive, and aerospace industries.
Additionally, some labs want to know the torque required for specimen failure and would also satm to see a plot of torque versus the number of turns for 9a38 entire test. Speed of Twisting – The rate of testing can vary and both standards provide recommended ranges that are based on the wire diameter. Keyed asstm W-MTB provide smaller diameter clamping. Next Checking to see if you are a returning visitor…. Contact Us View Accessories Catalog.
The real-time measurement data can also be plotted graphically during the test. Specimen Lengths – Instron’s MT torsion testers feature an adjustable tailstock assembly that allows aatm easy adjustment of the test opening.
Glossary of Materials Testing Terms. Total Turns Measurement – The total number of turns to fracture are directly measured by a digital rotary encoder and automatically recorded by the testing software.
The MT torsion systems are supplied with precision torque cells that can measure torque accurately down to 0. Subscribe to Instron News!
Email addresses can only contain letters, numbers and the following special characters: As the preferred solution for low-force torsion testing and component in-service simulation, the MT MicroTorsion Series test wires, fasteners, switches, and springs in the biomedical, automotive, and aerospace industries.
Both testing standards require that a wire specimen be twisted about the longitudinal axis until it fails. Universal materials testing software for sstm hydraulic, electromechanical and torsion testing systems – WBB. Please confirm that you agree with our privacy and cookies policy to submit this form.

Guide rails enable the assembly to move freely in the axial direction while a test is being performed. Torque versus Rotation plots are automatically generated during the test and indicate where the wire yields and fractures. Users of previous versions of software such as Bluehill 2 and Bluehill 3 can easily upgrade to the newest version of Bluehill.
Software for Series Systems. Our MT1 and MT2 torsion test systems offer an axial preload assembly that provides a constant axial force and can be adjusted for different size specimens.
Bluehill Universal Brochure Bluehill Universal Software is built from the ground-up for touch interaction and an intuitive user experience. Axial Tensile Force – To prevent the wire from bending away from the axis of rotation, a small tensile sstm is required to keep the specimen straight during testing.
Bluehill Universal Software is built from the ground-up for touch interaction and an intuitive user experience. WaveMatrix 2 for Dynamic Testing.
ASTM A – 07 Standard Test Method for Torsion Testing of Wire
Lathe style chucks can be supplied for larger diameters and can also be modified to allow for clamping a wire with a 90 degree bend on the ends. Tests cannot be run when the door is opened and the rugged Lexan shield helps protect the operator from broken specimen fragments that may be ejected during 9a38.
Challenges The challenges of testing wire to these standards are: Gripping Maintaining the rate of turning Applying a constant tensile force Accommodating various specimen lengths Shielding against broken specimen fragments Automatic turn counting Measuring and plotting torque Instron Solution Gripping – Many common wire diameters can be gripped with standard drill style chucks.
