Fault Detection and Circuit Analysis of INSTRON 1603 Fatigue Testing Machine

Mohapatra, Romit and Panda, Ashutosh (2010) Fault Detection and Circuit Analysis of INSTRON 1603 Fatigue Testing Machine. BTech thesis.



Instron 1603 is a fatigue testing machine imported from England in 1987. This machine works on electromagnetic principle. Instron is presently supplying 8000’s series which are Hydraulic Based machines. 1603 can be used for testing up to 120 Hz load cycle where as the present machines can be used until 10Hz load cycle, this is where 1603 scores over present machines but strategically company has stopped manufacturing and service to this machine. The machine present in our institute is not in working condition from the past 2 years, the reason behind this is misalignment of circuits, and this is where we pitch in to look into the problem and fix it. The team’s objective was basically concerned with understanding the machine in depth, to make a total record of the machine and to do a strategic design of the controller and other important circuits to run the machine.
