High-Rate System Examples
The systems described below illustrate examples of custom high-rate system implementations. Applications range from simulation of high-temperature forging and rolling processes to impact testing of marine structures and sacrificial energy-absorber devices.
TMTS – Thermo-Mechanical Treatment Simulator
The Thermo-Mechanical Treatment Simulator (TMTS) is a complex metal forming simulation system. It is used to conduct controlled laboratory-based simulations of high temperature and high deformation rate multi-step metal forming processes such as those experienced in rolling mills and similar large-scale metal production processes.
Other high-rate examples
Servotest is able to design and manufacture custom high-rate testing systems to meet specific customer requirements.
While the TMTS series of testing systems described elsewhere on this web site are very specific example of high-rate system Servotest has also developed other bespoke systems for more test-specific applications.
