FATIGUE LAB
 

The Fatigue Laboratary is intended for catering the needs of evaluation of endurance/fatigue resistance of various Safety Components, Sub-assemblies, Vehicles etc. The Fatigue Lab assists OEMs/Components manufactures for their R&D, validation activities. The estimation of life & behavior of any component under alternating stresses are essential to finalize the design of any component. ICAT's Fatigue test laboratary is well equipped with fatigue test facilities for components ranging from very small size (e.g. fasteners, chains etc) to complete vehicles (e.g. X-poster etc). The following are the details of various test facilities :--
