DESCRIPCIÓN GENERAL
DESCRIPCIÓN GENERAL
AUTOMAX Multitest represents a step change in versatility that allows modular upgrades from basic failure tests up to advanced displacement controlled tests.
The system in fact offers step-by-step flexibility to build your testing system to cover possible future testing needs.
The console is supplied with DATAMANAGER software for standard failure tests to EN and ASTM, but with additional frames, accessories and dedicated software packages, your system can easily perform many tests including:
  • Tension on steel rebar (with optional software package 82-SW/UTS)
  • Modulus of Elasticity and Poisson Ratio determinations (with optional software package 82-SW/EM)
  • Displacement controlled tests for FRC/Shotcrete characterization (with optional software package 82-SW/DC)
The AUTOMAX Multitest control console is also the perfect solution to update, with limited investment, an existing tension/compression tester series 70-C0019, by replacing the old semi-automatic system composed by hydraulic pump and DIGIMAX PLUS readout unit. Ask our technical department for more information.
