Proof Load Testing of a Rocker Assembly

At EMF, Inc. we provide comprehensive mechanical testing services for a variety of parts used in the aerospace industry. This rocker assembly is used to perform proof load testing on a steering linkage under hydraulic cylinder loading. Customer specifications required multi-angle and multi-location loading conditions. To accomplish this, we designed a specialized fixture and multiple adapters capable of accommodating the specified loads. In addition, we performed a "test to failure" loading scenario for further data collection.

The procedures and test results were recorded and reported to the customer as requested. As a specialty engineering and machining company, we are very adept at developing innovative testing equipment and procedures for specialized applications. Our convenient location along Florida's Space Coast allows us to efficiently provide full engineering and fabrication support to customers in the aerospace and defense industries. For additional information about this proof load testing project, see the table below, or contact us directly.
