The Lab test Automatic range of 100 kn capacity flexure testing machines have been designed to meet The need for reliable and consistent testing of flexural test on standard concrete beams, transverse Test on kerbs and flagstones, indirect tensile tests on concrete and interlocking pavers. Labtest flexural machines consist of their main part; frame. Each part has been designed to manufacture Machines with a high degree of mechanical stability and complies with EN 12390-5, EN 12390-6, EN 1338, EN 1340, ASTM C78, C293 and C496 by choosing suitable accessories.
The versatile load frame is designed for minimum deflection at maximum load resulting in very high accuracy.
The load frame is welded steel fabrication carrying the ram fitted to the upper crosshead.
All frames have a single acting down stroking ram with over travel switch protection to shut the machine down should maximum ram travel be reached.
The return of the ram is done by dead weight to get maximum accuracy on the load measurement.
The load cell is used for load measurements.
All flexural frames have been designed to accept all the accessories for flexural and transverse tests.
Both frames can be connected to any compression machine as a second frame.
The main characteristics are:
Two capacity high stability welded assembly
75 and 100 mm piston stroke with safety limit switch
Piston return by dead weight
Can accept all required accessories for mentioned standards
Data acquisition and control system (Optional Accessory)
LCD graphics data acquisition and controls system is designed to control the machine and processing of data from load cells or pressure transducers installed on the compression machine frame.
The easy to read lcd graphic display and touch-button data pad keys make the unit quick and straight forward to operate.
All interaction with the measuring system is via the front control panel by using simple menu-driven procedures.
The indicator is contained in light alloy housing and its design satisfies the ergonomic requirements for various use.
The digital graphic display allows real time load vs time graph.
At the end of the test cycle the results can be stored in the large memory or downloaded to a PC in Labtest software format.
Dedicated software package is available for further online data processing, database management and certificate printing.
Safety features all labtest flexural machines are fitted with:
Max pressure valve to avoid machine overloading
Ram travel switch to prevent excessive piston travel.
