Monotonic and Multi-Cycle Torsion Testing
Monotonic and multi-cycle torsion testing allows manufacturers to ensure the reliability of orthopaedic bone screws, lead wires, surgical tools, tubing, catheters, torsion springs and other devices and components that are subject to torque loading in typical service environments. Tests apply torque up to 50 Nm and can be programmed to perform monotonic or multi-cycle tests in conjunction with an optional static axial load to make sure components meet or exceed expectations for durability.
MTS offers abundant expertise in medical device and component testing, and we have channeled this experience into the development of compact, tabletop electromechanical torsion test systems specifically designed for this application.
To round out the solution, we provide easy-to-use application software for test definition, data acquisition, analysis and reporting. A suite of torsion test methods is also available to help test teams meet the requirements of established orthopaedic and medical device testing standards.
