LCF Brochure

Low Cycle Fatigue (LCF) testing is a growing area of materials testing, driven in particular by increasing demand from the aerospace, automotive and power generation industries. ISO 12016 and ASTM E606 specify the standard practice for strain controlled fatigue testing, used for simulating mechanical loading into the plastic region. This testing is typically carried out at very high temperatures to replicate the service conditions experienced by turbine blades in both gas turbines and jet engines.

8862 Servo-Electric Testing System

8862 systems have been the industry choice for Low Cycle Fatigue (LCF) testing for decades and are now fully integrated with our latest controller platform. Instron® has developed this system specifically to address the challenges of reverse-stress Low Cycle Fatigue and Thermomechanical Fatigue (TMF) testing. The unique actuator technology utilizes an all-electric, backlash free, ball-screw drive eliminating the need for hydraulic infrastructure to support the machine.
