MT Series Low Capacity Torsion Testers

MT Series Low Capacity Torsion Testers

Designed primarily for low-capacity (450 ┬ÁNm - 225 Nm) torsion testing of materials and components, the MT torsion systems offer accurate, multi-turn capability, high rotational stiffness, and minimal axial friction. The system torque cell is attached to a movable crosshead, which can be left free-floating or clamped during testing. When left free-floating, the user can apply an axial pre-load to the specimen using a weight and pulley arrangement. Closed-loop servo-control of the electromechanical drive is provided by 5900 Control Electronics and Bluehill Universal Software.

Features

  • Dual linear slide design provides high-rotational stiffness and low-axial friction

  • Adjustable crosshead locking system allows crosshead to be free-floating or fixed during testing

  • Interlocked test space enclosure enhances operator safety

  • Digital control electronics allow for accurate and repeatable test results and fast control response for both torque and angle

  • Torsion testing software offers easy test set up, graphical data plots, automatic calculation of desired test results and flexible reporting tools

  • Torque Cell protection device minimizes the chance of over-ranging low capacity torque cells during test set up

  • Optional axial preload assembly applies a constant tensile or compressive load during test

  • Range of low-capacity torque cells are available down to 0.225 Nm (2 lbf-in)

  • Designed and sized to easily fit on a lab table top
