MTS Systems has secured a substantial order for mechanical test equipment, software and consulting from Rolls-Royce. The MTS testing solutions will be deployed at the new Rolls-Royce mechanical test operations center (MTOC) in Dahlewitz, Germany, to provide insight into the behavior of jet engine materials and components under demanding, real-world operating conditions. The order comprises a variety of single and multiaxial servohydraulic load frames outfitted with MTS grips, high-temperature extensometers and environmental simulation systems. MTS Landmark servohydraulic test systems will be deployed for conducting uniaxial thermomechanical fatigue, high-temperature low cycle fatigue, fracture mechanics and tensile testing. A planar biaxial test system equipped with a high temperature and vacuum environment will provide precision multiaxial force and torque control for subjecting engine turbine materials to complex loading in high stress, elevated temperature environments.
