Halverson & Peschke measuring and testing technology GmbH has passed a universal testing machine of type INSP 100 at the University of Kassel. The new system allows material testing up to 1,200 c. Nossen/Kassel, October 21, 2008 the Halverson & Peschke measuring and testing technology GmbH has passed a universal testing machine of type INSP 100 at the University of Kassel. The new plant is equipped with a high-temperature furnace, which enables material testing up to 1,200 c. In the framework of a project funded by the German Research Foundation DFG, the Chair of forming technology examines the temperature-dependent inelastic material behaviour of metals and plastics. Here, the Halperin & Peschke GmbH important parameterized data is contribute to the new universal strength testing machine.

INSP 100 determination of mechanical technological properties the universal testing machine of the INSP series with a capacity of 100kN is specially designed for use in material testing laboratories of the metal industry. The Universal strength testing machines are characterised by their high mechanical precision, a superior frame stiffness, as well as the usage of most modern control electronics. Even the basic version offers mounting options for various accessories, such as temperature control chambers, high-temperature furnaces and extensometers. University of Kassel explored coupled phenomena thermo mechanical coupling complex thermal and mechanical mechanisms rarely developed future potential in terms of the design space is just in the context of modern industrial manufacturing processes,\”explained Dipl.-ing. Manuel may wreath Valentin, researcher at the Institute of forming technology of the University of Kassel. The research goal of the special research area Transregio 30 since mid-2006 by the DFG-funded (SFB TR / TRR30) integrated manufacturing of functionally graded structures based on coupled thermo mechanical phenomena ‘ is about new hybrid thermo mechanical process for such micro- and to reach with conventional litigation strategies previously not macro-structural product structures or are only available at uneconomic terms.
