We can quasi-statically test a wide range of structures using a variety of rigs including:

Roll Hoop Test Facility:

  • Roll hoops can be tested on a purpose-built rig conforming to FIA standards.

Adaptive T-Slot Bed:

  • A 3 x 4m T-Slot with M26 T-Slots on 200mm centres. Various mounting brackets can be attached as supplied by CIC or the customer
  • Tension and compression testing of components with displacement controlled actuators capable of up to 50kN with a maximum of 500mm displacement
  • Various rates of applications can be achieved, a typical feed is 1mm/sec
  • Load and deflection data can be measured and analysed per customer requirement.

Compression Test Rig:

  • 600kN static rig capable of compression, extension and fatigue cycles. This rig enables testing motorsport composite panels as required by FIA regulations.

 Specification:

  • 3 x 4m adaptive T-Slot bed fixing platform
  • Hydraulic actuators with displacement and force control options
  • Instrumentation options include force, displacement and strain
  • Force loads up to 200kN. Higher loads can be obtained using CIC’s compression machine.
  • Multi-view camera options with integration with instrumentation output
  • Rig design and manufacture to assist the mounting of your specimen.

Typical applications include:

  • Roll cages to various FIA standards
  • Proof loading for the entertainment industry
  • Aircraft seat static testing with body blocks
  • Ladder proof testing
  • Medical device in-service hardware
  • Rally seats to FIA standards
  • Barrier static impacts
  • 3 and 4 point bending tests
  • Integrity of flooring and sub structure.
