Build certainty into your dynamic testing with MTS Force Transducers
 
Gaining meaningful materials test data requires precise measurement and control of the loads and motions being applied to test specimens. For dynamic testing of materials under load, displacement or strain control, this critical measurement function is best performed by highly accurate MTS Force Transducers (load cells) for servohydraulic systems.

A new composite process takes wing
 
Dr. Yuichiri Aioki and his Advanced Composite Group at JAXA are focusing on the new technology of Vacuum-assisted Resin Transfer Molding (VaRTM) to explore its potential for low-cost composite component and structure fabrication. To prove that parts yielded by the new process could withstand complex aerospace loading, the team embarked on a testing program that included static testing of a full-scale wing structure and fatigue testing of subcomponents. MTS helped JAXA meet its program objectives with an offering of precision digital controls, robust load frames and actuators, advanced application software, and expert service and support.
