Torsion Testing Wire to ASTM A938 and ISO 7800
How can we help you? Upon failure, the number of turns should be recorded. Check this box to receive pertinent commercial email from Instron focusing on products, upcoming events, and more! Discover simpler and smarter testing with features such as pre-loaded test methods, QuickTest in seconds, enhanced data exporting: Challenges The challenges of testing wire to these standards are: Software for Series Systems.
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 failure. 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 load is required to keep the specimen straight during testing.
Speed of Twisting – The rate of testing can vary and both standards provide recommended ranges that are based on the wire diameter. Users of previous versions of software such as Bluehill 2 and Bluehill 3 can easily upgrade to the newest version of Bluehill.
Both testing standards require that a wire specimen be twisted about the longitudinal axis until it fails. 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. The MT torsion systems are supplied with precision torque cells that can measure torque accurately down to 0.

Next Checking to see if you are a returning visitor…. Awtm 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. Email addresses must contain the symbol. 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.
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. Torque versus Rotation plots are automatically generated during the test and indicate where the wire yields and fractures.
Guide rails enable the assembly to move freely in the axial direction while a test is being performed. Additionally, some labs want to know the torque required for specimen failure and would also like to see a plot of torque versus the number of turns for the entire test. This plot will show where the wire yielded during the twist test, as well as the failure point and profile.
The Xstm torsion models are available with extended length if longer specimen lengths are required. Keyless chucks W-MT01 offer a toothed profile that helps reduce slippage. WaveMatrix 2 for Dynamic Testing.
