Description

This frame is meant to be connected to the AUTOMAX Multitest control console in order to have a unique system suitable to perform both concrete and steel testing.

It is suitable to perform tension tests on steel rebars up to 26 mm dia. and compression tests on cylindrical concrete specimens up to dia. 160x320 mm and cubes up to 150 mm, using the appropriate accessories. 
 
The frame consists of a very rigid structure with double acting cylinder assembly.
It is supplied complete with a set of tensile holders, 4 wedge grips for flats up to 13 mm thickness, 4 wedge grips for rounds up to 26 mm dia. and 2 sets of grip liners 4 and 8 mm thick.
Furthermore it is fitted with a 150 mm travel high precision displacement transducer allow­ing test execution under cross­head separation control. See Technical Specifications.

Spherical seat and compression platens for concrete specimens are not included and have to be ordered separately (see Accessories).

It is also available a version for tensile tests only fitted with high accuracy load cell.
