This machine has been designed for use, in the field or laboratory 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 system includes the Automax PRO-M power and control system for the automatic execution of compression and tensile tests.
The frame consists of a very rigid frame with double acting cylinder assembly.
It includes a set of tensile holders, 4 wedge grips for flats up to thickness of 13 mm, 4 wedge grips for rounds up to 26 mm dia. and 2 sets of grips' liners 4 and 8 mm thick.
Spherical seat and compression platens for concrete specimens are not included and have to be ordered separately (see Accessories).
High precision displacement transducer, 150mm travel, is mounted on the piston/cylinder assembly to obtain stress/elongation graph based on the crossheads separation measurement.
Spherical seat and compression platens for concrete specimens are not included and have to be ordered separately (see Accessories)
AUTOMAX PRO-M Automatic power and control system
Automatically performs steel tensile and concrete compression tests when connected to the relevant accessories. See Technical Specifications.
