The t-slot table provides an extended work area primarily intended for clamping components or structures for performing tensile, compression or flexural tests.
The t-slot table is mounted directly on to the base platen of the machine and is equipped with T-Slots running from front to back and side to side and diagonally. Components/ structures can then be secured in position on the table using the various clamping tools supplied. When installed, the t-slot table can be used for conventional testing by fixing a machine base adapter in the center of the table for the mounting of standard Instron grips, test fixtures and other major accessories.
Principle Of OperationSimple mechanical T-slot attachment
