Biaxial Fatigue testing  - TC_5_TopITS has four Biaxial Fatigue test machines equipped to test wheels, spindles, hubs and bearings. Having co-developed the SAE J2562 passenger car and light truck load files, our experience includes developing sports car wheels, forensic evaluation of wheel fastening systems and A-to-B comparison testing to find inboard flange hacksaw cracks. We are now approved to perform the AKR Biaxial load file and we are working with SAE to develop a North American heavy truck load file.

The two machines with tri-axial capability can impose torsion simultaneous to lateral and radial loads. This application is used in motorcycle wheel development. Our machines can impose forces up to 60kN in both directions.
