A special version of the MTS3000 system can be used to determine residual stress in composite materials.

Composite material is not uniform, and different results are expected in different points of the same sample.

Restan MTS 3000 is actually the ONLY system in the world specifically designed to carry out these tests, thanks to a modification of the standard drilling technology. Drilling is done at low speed (some thousands of RPM) in order not to generate local heat in the material. It also use a reduced feed speed to minimize the effect of drilling (approx. 0.1 mm/min).
