Bi-axial & Quad-axial tensile stages
Deben can supply a range of different stages for Bi-axial and Quad-axial tensile testing. Whatever your requirements Deben have a solution for your application, we have a standard 2kN stage and can manufacture other custom systems with different forces from 50N up to 100kN.
Bi-axial testing stage
Deben bi-axial tensile stages can be used for bi-axially stretching sheet material such as textiles, including leather, and also various polymers. Two axes move and the opposite axes track on slides, for a full four axes system consider our quad-axis testing solution.
The tensile stage allows engineers and scientists to study the effects of bi-axial force upon various materials. Systems may also be used as a uniaxial tensile stage if so required.
These stages are made to order but we do have some standard designs, contact us with your requirements. We make systems with very high force (up to 100kN) or miniature systems for bio-medical applications.
Quad-axial testing stage
The 4x 2kN quad-axial tensile stage has been developed for bench-top and SEM in-situ use. The stage has four independently controlled axes with separate motors, extensometers and loadcells. This stage is available as a standard or custom system, if you are interested please contact us with your exact requirements.
