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 threfore it’s of paramont 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.

How to measure the stresses ?

ULTRA RS offers an efficient and accurate tools for the stress analysis in mechanical components, including the following service on site or at ULTRA RS premises :

  • The study and the set up of the specifications with client collaboration;
  • The development of the measuring devices depending of the customer specification;
  • The qualification of the ultrasonic method;
  • Control of parts and interpretation of the results;
  • Production of a test report.
