Industrial Series LX Models
Designed for high capacity tension, compression, bend/flex, and shear testing, the LX Models feature a large, single test space and single footprint. Understanding the critical importance of operator safety, these frames incorporate high-quality materials, components, and craftsmanship and are ideal for testing metals, fasteners, wire rod, and composites.
- Single footprint saves valuable floor space - load frame, hydraulic power supply, and controller combined in a single package
- Large, single test space design adapts to a wide range of specimen sizes, grips, fixtures, and extensometry
- Dual-acting actuator offers precise control for tension and compression testing
- Hydraulically adjustable and clamping crosshead option simplifies changing test opening for longer specimens
- Productivity panel with multiple function keys and displays improves ergonomics, and allows the operator to perform common testing functions and view key test information without returning to the computer
- Powerful, yet user-friendly materials testing software provides repeatable and reproducible results for simple to sophisticated testing requirements
- Variable pressure hydraulic power supply provides pressure on demand, reducing heat generation, increasing oil life, and eliminating the need for water cooling
Range of Models
300LX - 300 kN (67,500 lbf)
