Case study release: Fastener fatigue testing

Join us as we undertake sub-contract fatigue testing for German based manufacturer Heinrich Jungeblodt, who specialise in producing fasteners including bolts, head screws, washers and nuts for worldwide distribution.

Our test lab team have recently completed fatigue testing on eight off bolts from three separate batches, to determine how many cycles of fatigue the samples could withstand before failure.

Heinrich Jungeblodt relied on our team of test lab technicians to carry out the testing, and our design engineers to develop a bespoke fixture to hold the sample in place for accurate testing.

John Cross, General Manager for Phoenix Materials Testing says, “If expert verification is not conducted, we have products that cause catastrophic health and safety issues, failed parts causing oil spills and sunken ships, with devastating environmental, human and economic impact.” Read more…

Christophe Welzel, Quality Manager for Heinrich Jungeblodt says, “Compromising quality is not an option. It is crucial that we are very precise when checking the stress that our samples can withstand.” Find out more…
