Early in 2020 two of our engineers traveled to Alabama, USA to install the latest Deben CT 20kN Open Frame testing rig at Auburn University.
The system is a testing rig capable of applying tensile and compression force up to 20kN and torsion of 100Nm while simultaneously rotating the sample for continuous X-Ray CT or Synchrotron observation.
The University have the Open Frame rig integrated with their Pinnacle X-ray Solutions Inc. PXS-500/90 CT system (pictured below). They already have a long list of tests planned to run on their new Open Frame system and we look forward to seeing the results.
We wanted to share some images from this exciting installation and look forward to helping many more customers with these systems in the future!
In the images below you will see Bart Prorok, Director of the Analytical Microscopy Center and Professor of Materials Engineering at Auburn University. If you’d like to learn more about Professor Prorok & Auburn then here’s a link to an interesting article that gives further insight into their work & the x-ray CT system.
You should hear from us shortly.
