Twin column test stands

Tuesday, 09 June, 2009 | Supplied by: SI Instruments



Mecmesin twin column testing frames provide the opportunity to test physically larger specimens and apply loads up to 25 kN. The increased load allows samples up to 400 mm wide and 950 mm high to be accommodated. Each test frame has been designed to deliver high stiffness — often necessary in high load, low elongation testing applications — and are driven by twin, pre-loaded, synchronised ballscrews.

The testing platforms are provided in a choice of two operating modes — the console-controlled MultiTest-x and computer-controlled MultiTest-i.

The flexible, powerful, yet easy-to-use MultiTest-x carries out precise test procedures ‘at the push of a button’, then automatically displays test results with a pass/fail indicator. The MultiTest-x integrated controller/console displays a series of menus and prompts which guide the user easily through the creation of test procedures.

The top-of-the-range MultiTest-i is Mecmesin’s most comprehensive system, and when used with Emperor software enables the user to create sophisticated test programs via computer. Intelligent loadcells mounted on the MultiTest-i test frame download test data synchronously at a rate of up to 2000/s, directly to a PC via the serial port. This ensures high accuracy of testing, particularly where peak loads are being recorded.

Emperor software has been specifically designed to work with the MultiTest-i range of test frames. It combines ease of use with powerful programming tools making it suitable for sophisticated test routines in the laboratory.
