Quenching and deformation dilatometer

Tension and compression tests with a programmable heat treatment and forming unit

Our Services

  • Determination of flow curves under tensile and compressive load for material characterization and simulation of the forming behavior
  • Multi-step heat treatments with varying heating and cooling rates for optimization of mechanical properties of metal and alloys
  • (Multi-step) deformation in combination with heat treatment for simulation of rolling, forging, extrusion and sheet metal forming processes
  • Determination of recovery/recrystallization behavior
  • Studies on the thermal coefficient of expansion
