High speeds demanded by modern machinery for high performance demand careful attention to the design integrity of the rotor to insure reliability as well as human safety.
A manufacturer needn't risk destruction of expensive machinery to perform these tests at or above the machine's allowable operating speed. Our equipment is uniquely suited to perform such tests safely and economically. The tests are performed in test chambers, which are built to contain the fragments resulting from fracture of test pieces made from the highest strength alloys. The drives are also designed to sustain the energy of a rotor burst.
