Dynamic & Fatigue Test Machines
Fatigue test machines produce high speed static, dynamic and fatigue tests to enable researchers to test materials, products and components. Fatigue tests help establish a material or component’s life expectancy under actual service loads.
Models: 7 force ratings
Full Scale Force Range: 0.5 N to 50 kN (0.1 lbf to 11,250 lbf)
Frequency Ranges: 15 Hz and higher
The 800 Series is a highly modular all electric dynamic test machine that performs slow speed static and high speed dynamic and fatigue tests at forces up to 50 kN (11,250 lbf).
Models: 5 force ratings
Full Scale Force Range: 5 N to 2 MN (1 lbf to 450 kip)
The 900 Series deliver higher forces with speeds matched to load/stroke performance requirements. They take more power and can perform tests at higher forces and higher speeds than electrodynamic testers.
Models: 3 force ratings
Full Scale Force Range: 5 N to 25 kN (1 lbf to 5,500 lbf)
The 910 Series is a highly integrated standalone servohydraulic test machine that includes an energy efficient power pack.
Maximum Specimen Temperature: 1,200°C (2,192°F)
Force Capacity: 25 kN - 50 kN (larger sizes available)
Thermomechanical fatigue (TMF) test systems adds the sophistication of performing realistic thermal cycling with mechanical fatigue testing to simulate real-world service conditions of materials and engineered components.

Accessories for Fatigue Test Machines
Each type of test tends to have unique sample design and geometry, which then requires different test fixtures and accessories. To increase the number of testing applications, you may simply need to change the fixtures.
Environmental chambers for applications between -170°C and 620°C (-275°F and 1,150°F)
These chambers can also be used for humidity applications between 10% and 90% RH
Furnaces for high temperature applications up to 1,200°C (2,200°F)
Biobaths for biological simulated testing environments
What is the price of a fatigue testing machine?
In 2020, the price of a fatigue test machine ranges from $44,000 to $103,000. The 3 main factors that affect the cost are force, speed and controller, with force capacity having the most impact.
Low force (up to 1.5 kN to 5 kN (350 lbf to 1125 lbf) max force) fatigue test machines range in price from $44,000 to $52,000.
Medium force (up to 8.8 kN to 30 kN (2000 lbf to 6,750 lbf) max force) fatigue test machines range in price from $68,000 to $74,000.
High force (up to 50 kN (11,250 lbf) max force) fatigue test machines cost around $103,000.
