Tests and activities of the Laboratory
A resilience test to evaluate the resistance of alloy wheels subject to impact through a collision simulation.
Non-destructive tests by means of liquid penetrant inspection to assess materials defects with no product damage.
A fatigue test that allows to evaluate the wheel resistance during rolling under load, as on a road drive.
A fatigue test with rotating bending moment that simulates the load condition to which the wheel is subject to when in use.
The material to be analyzed is subjected to a powerful electrical discharge. Under the effect of this discharge, part of the surface vaporizes creating a cloud of excited ions that emit electromagnetic radiation.
The macroscopic analysis of welded joints on metallic materials allows to verify the shape and quality of the welds
In a tensile test the specimen, usually a dog bone, is deformed by gradually increasing the axial load until failure.
