GIGA QUAD® is convenient to get a number of fatigue test data very quickly, because four specimens can be tested simultaneously.
In order to obtain one S-N curve, four specimens can be tested at different stress levels by giving different weights for the respective specimens. Thus, S-N property of a definite material can be obtained within the reasonable short period.
From this point of view, the present machine of GIGA QUAD® has a significant performance of the high efficiency.

Chart Comparison of Single and Dual-Spindle Testing Period
In this testing machine, collet nuts and collet chucks are used to fix and remove the specimens.
When the user wants to fix a specimen, the specimen is inserted into the collet chuck as indicated in this figure, and he tightens the collet nut by using a spanner.
And when he wants to remove the specimen, he loosens the collet nut by the spanner, and pull out it by fingers.
About the collet chucks, different inner diameters such as 6mm, 8mm and 10mm are prepared in advance.
Thus, the user can choose the most convenient size of the collet chuck depending on their own requirements.
The advantage is to use high performance collet chuck and nut. Thus, small eccentricity of the specimen after chucking was realized.
Such a small eccentricity is fundamentally important to perform the fatigue tests in rotating bending.
If the eccentricity becomes large, problems of vibration and noise take place in the fatigue tests and, therefore, some extent of error is included in the applied stress.
According to preliminary experiments, no effect of the eccentricity was found for fatigue test data to obtain the S-N property, if the eccentricity is kept within ±30μm.
This is the reason why eccentricity is focused as an important subject as a ROTATING BENDING FATIGUE TESTING MACHINE.
From this point of view, the eccentricity was kept within ±30μm.
One handed type
Plating, heat treatment, thermal spray, shot peening, laser, coating….
GIGA QUAD® is suitable for any kind of research and studies for metal fatigue characteristics with surface modification.
Because the effective volume of the specimen in the cantilever bending(One-handed type) is much smaller than that in the uniform bending(both-handed type).
This means that it is small percentage that the specimen is broken by material inner defect in the case of one-handed type.

High temperature environmental testing unit (Halogen Lamp) for GIGA QUAD®
It is necessary to clarify the reliability property of structural materials at high environmental temperature.A spot light-condensed heating method is adopted in the developed high temperature unit. The light emitted from the halogen lamp is reflected and condensed to the small spot in the center of specimen.
