Exova has added twelve of the newest designed fatigue frames at its locations across North America.
Manufactured by MTS, these frames come with the latest ‘Test Suite’ software, which Exova says allows advanced test programming and detailed analysis and presentation of test data.
Exova explains that this investment brings its fatigue frame count in North America to an impressive 83, at locations in Santa Fe Springs, California, US, Anaheim, California, US, and Mississauga in Toronto, Canada. The new frames expand Exova’s provision for highly technical fatigue testing, such as spectrum and sub-element testing, widening services for its North America-based customers.
Exova adds that customer testing is now being loaded on the new frames at Santa Fe Springs and Anaheim, California, US, with the frames at Mississauga scheduled to come on line in early June.
Chris Harwood, Technical Director Aerospace, Americas, commented, “The addition of these twelve frames demonstrates Exova’s commitment to invest in new technology and provide our customers with the latest fatigue testing capabilities available. However, Exova’s commitment doesn’t stop here; we are currently working on a capital expenditure plan to procure an additional twelve frames to satisfy growing customer demand.”
