Autofrettage Systems

Autofrettage Systems

Autofrettage increases the strength of components for use with high and pulsating pressures. The components are pressurised until their inside plasticizes. The resultant internal stress of the material prevents fissuring during subsequent use and increases the service life of the components.

For high-pressure components

Poppe + Potthoff Maschinenbau offers systems for the precisely defined autofrettage of prototypes and series components, which are subject to a continuous switch between high and low pressures. 

Applications:

  • Components for high-pressure, hydraulic and diesel injection systems
  • Pressure vessels, gas cylinders and components for water jet cutting systems
  • Lines for chemical apparatus engineering, plant construction and power plant engineering
  • Pressure sensors and measuring transducers
