Ceramic cage testing

Ceramic cage testing

Static and fatigue testing of cages is performed according to ASTM F2077. For standard materials such as metal or PEEK, load blocks are manufactured by multipass milling with a small radius cutter. Due to the brittle behavior of ceramics, small geometrical deviations at the edges of the load block do generate high contact stresses.

Endolab® has developed an additive manufacturing method that does generate high precision load blocks meeting the material requirements given by ASTM F20133.
