Wire Fatigue Testers - Rotating Beam Wire Fatigue Tester - Stent Fatigue Tester - Blockwise Engineering

These machines are used to test the fatigue life of small wires and cables. The rotary beam method to induces a cyclic strain at high frequency, reducing the testing time compared with other methods. Model variations provide for a very wide range of achievable test strain values. The machine captures the number of strain cycles at the moment of breakage, using either optical or contact-conduction sensing methods.

The world’s easiest to use and fastest-running wire fatigue tester for small diameter wire. Precise, easy to set up, quiet, trouble-free operation with capability up to 10,000 rpm (3x the speed of rival testers), or 25,000 rpm with the high-speed model. Automatically detects wire failure and captures the cycle count at fracture.

Multiple-Unit Assemblies – G Series

Multiple fatigue testers mounted on a bench platform provide a compact footprint and single utilities point-of-connection, typically with a common water bath. Any of the FTX line models (FTX, FTXC, FTXH) can be grouped to make a G-Series unit.
