Thermomechanical Fatigue (TMF) Subsystem

Thermomechanical Fatigue (TMF) Subsystem

The TMF Subsystem is ideal for inducing thermal cycling in a metallic (magnetically susceptible) specimen. A combination of induction heating and air cooling allows thermomechanical fatigue tests to be performed in or out of phase with a load force. The TMF subsystem has a user-friendly design that helps operators perform repeatable test setup tasks quickly.
