Test Equipment

Test Devices has developed the world’s most precise, accurate and efficient test solutions because the company employs very experienced and accomplished scientists and engineers. For almost 40 years Test Devices has developed and advanced the science of centrifugal, vibratory and thermal stress testing and measurement of rotational components – critical solutions engineers need to evaluate integrity and validate component parts.

Production / Proof (“Burst”) Rigs

Test Devices offers a complete range of turnkey spin rigs for proof (burst) testing targeted at R&D applications, and over-speed (pre-spin) testing for production requirements. Many options are available to customize machines for specific needs.

Dynamic Rigs

Only Test Devices offers Dynamic Spin Rigs that excite resonant vibration in fully bladed engine rotor stages. Dynamic Spin Rigs include the excitation, speed control and data acquisition systems necessary to carry out vibratory characterization, damper evaluation and high cycle fatigue (HCF) testing programs.

Fatigue Rigs

These high-performance, rapid cycling drive systems substantially shorten test program durations to provide data sooner. An optional crack detection system identifies cracks in the test rotor during a low cycle fatigue (LCF) test, so a test can be stopped prior to rotor fatigue failure.

Drive Systems

The direct drive systems offered by Test Devices are ideal for vertical spin rig and other test rig applications. These drives are designed to provide unparalleled performance and reliability.
