The Stresscraft company was formed in 1984 to provide stress analysis services using photoelastic models. We are based in an old church in Shepshed, Near Loughborough. The company was registered as Stresscraft Ltd in 1987.
Our customers include manufacturers of aero-engines, aerospace components, diesel engines, pressure vessels and racing engines from the UK, USA, France, Germany, Spain, etc.
We have over 12 years of experience in residual stress determination :
drilling a wide variety of materials (including alloy steels, cast-iron, aluminium alloys, nickel super-alloys, titanium, bearing steels, nitrided steel, glasses and ceramics, etc),
installing and drilling gauges in `difficult' locations,
use of the `integral' method for data reduction,
developing gauge and drilling equipment to enhance the accuracy of the method,
analysis of stresses using finite element models.
All hole drilling equipment is manufactured 'in-house'. Our current drilling devices are miniature, PC-controlled, 3-axis machines which use an 'orbital' motion to cut the hole.
The current work rate on residual stress projects exceeds 800 target gauges installed and drilled per year.
