Stress measurement

Why is stress measurement imperative?

Any mechanical part and any material have stresses, which can lead to deformation, the formation of cracks or even rupture. The presence of these stresses is mainly due to the manufacturing or assembly processes. It can evolve and vary according to the type of process : 

  •  Machining
  • Cold rolling
  • Casting
  • Hot rolling
  • Oxycutting
  • Welding
  • Surface treatment

 Some structures are subject to increasingly trying conditions, and therefore it is of paramount importance to know the magnitude of these stresses and to follow up their evolution over time. This helps predict fatigue of mechanical parts and materials. You will be able to prevent potential risks, ensure optimum safety and quality, and achieve significant savings.
