Generating higher frequencies than traditional high cycle fatigue (HCF) methods, our rotating beam fatigue testing services are designed to provide critical data about coatings and metallic surface treatments. 

Unlike other fatigue programs, rotating beam fatigue testing is used to rotate specimens around a long axis.  Before testing, our labs grind and polish specimens to ensure the most accurate results. Depending on the goal of the project, testing is either run to a set number of cycles or to failure. If the specimen fails, our experts can provide a failure analysis to determine what can be done to prevent future occurrences. 

Rotating Beam Fatigue Testing Services

In addition to our ISO 1143 and ASTM F1160 test programs, our experts can assist in performing custom and unique rotating beam fatigue testing methods. We assist in every stage of the process, from machining and polishing samples to interpreting test results. With years of fatigue testing experience, we can assist with any project, no matter how complex.
