Description of Universal Materials Tester 20kN
This Universal Material Tester is a bench top unit for training purposes. Simple operation and robust construction make the unit suitable for student experiments. The round threaded tensile specimens are installed between upper and lower fixings using the mating threads in each fixing. The hydraulic system applies either a tensile or compressive loading to specimens. Extension of the specimen is monitored using an extensometer for work on stress/strain curves and the Modulus of Elasticity. The applied force to the specimens is created using a digital pressure sensor and shown on the Digital Interface supplied. An elongation sensor is also supplied for use in bending, compressive and shear testing. Data Acquisition Software is supplied as standard to enable the test parameters to be captured, displayed, reviewed and printed. A wide variety of options are also available.
