TA ElectroForce 3550 Fatigue Test Instrument

The ElectroForce® test instruments from TA provide exceptional fidelity, precision and versatility for a variety of test applications. Our newest ElectroForce 3550 test instrument features a 15 kN dynamic force capability, using two linear motors in tandem, and has the largest range of displacement of all the ElectroForce instruments. Dynamic performance is dependent on test specimen characteristics, fixturing and test specimen configuration.

Typical test applications for the ElectroForce 3550 test instrument:

  • Engineered materials, including reinforced plastics and composites
  • Automotive and aerospace components
  • Elastomeric components and materials
  • Consumer products, including sports equipment, household items and electronics.

Advantages and benefits of the ElectroForce 3550 test instrument:

  • Versatility for a variety of mechanical fatigue and dynamic characterization tests
