Servo Hydraulic Universal Testing Machine

This servo-hydraulic Universal Testing Machine is ideal for high-capacity tension, compression, bend/flex, and shear testing. It is in accordance with the EN, ISO, ASTM, JIS, GB and many other standards. These frames feature dual spaces so users can quickly change between tension and compression testing without having to remove heavy fixtures.

Torontech is being increasingly recognized as a standard for accuracy, dependability and versatility in servo-hydraulic universal testing machines.

Applications

A Universal Testing Machine (UTM) is used to test both the tensile and compressive strength of materials. Universal Testing Machines are named as such because they can perform many different varieties of tests on an equally diverse range of materials, components, and structures. Most UTM models are modular, and can be adapted to fit the customer’s needs.

Universal Testing Machines can accommodate many kinds of materials, ranging from hard samples, such as metals and concrete, to flexible samples, such as rubber and textiles. This diversity makes the Universal Testing Machine equally applicable to virtually any manufacturing industry.

The UTM is a versatile and valuable piece of testing equipment that can evaluate materials properties such as tensile strength, elasticity, compression, yield strength, elastic and plastic deformation, bend compression, and strain hardening. Different models of Universal Testing Machines have different load capacities, some as low as 5kN and others as high as 2,000kN.

ASTM A416 Standard Specification for Steel Wire, Deformed, for Concrete Reinforcement. This specification covers deformed steel wire which has been cold-worked by drawing, rolling, or both drawing and rolling, to be used as produced, or in fabricated form, for the reinforcement of concrete in sizes having nominal cross-sectional areas not less than 6.45 mm2 [0.01 in.2].

Torontech’s High Strength Frame Dual Space Servo Hydraulic UTM TTSH2000 model is used to verify various mechanical properties of:

  • Metal: Pipe, tube, wire, rod, strip, plate and strip
  • Fasteners: Tensile, proof, single and double shear
  • Construction materials: Rebar, wire strand, mesh, folding, compression of concrete and components

Rigid 4-column load frame construction providing superior axial and lateral stiffness and minimum maintenance, low reaction at specimen failure. Chrome plated columns for easy cleaning and longest life.

Extra-length screws and columns, with an adjustable lower crosshead, to increase the available test space for longer test specimens. Double acting crossbeam quickly accommodates specimens of varying lengths. In the case of additional length of columns, the maximum testing space is adjustable to meet extra length specimens.

Fully open front hydraulic wedge grips make it easy to insert and remove specimens for increased productivity and operator safety.  Interchangeable design allows limited number of jaw faces to accommodate a large range of specimen sizes. Fully open front wedge clamps for easier loading and allowing rapid loading and unloading of specimens. Including grip control system mounted direct at the machine Tooling for tension, compression, bend/flex, shear, and other tests available. With digital displacement transducer for the best positioning and measuring accuracy.

ToronSOFT Control Software

ToronSOFT is the software used to control the Universal testing machine. The Tester and the software are designed to accommodate a wide variety of testing needs. The software has a variety of pre-set programmed test cycles for compression, tensile and cyclical testing to meet a variety of testing standards.

A powerful Help wizard helps the operator to set up and connect the accessories in many phases.  Includes installed packages of various test methods according to major national and international reference standards and different types of material to perform the following tests:

  • Traction       
  • Compression                                                             
  • Flexure        
  • Cycles                                                         
  • Spring tests
  • Customize your own tests

 

This program is complete with a graphic interface for:

The structure of the software is very flexible giving the possibility to personalize the tests, process the results and certificates, and in particular it is possible to:

  • Selection of communication language
  • Setting of test methods
  • Test execution
  • Analysis of the results
  • Printing of the certificates
  • Graphic post-analysis of the tests
  • Statistical analysis of the tests
  • Create custom tests
  • Customise the certificate
  • Print certificate with Company logo
  • Print certificates anytime in future, as a single test as well as summarizing certificate
  • Analyse a test anytime in the future.
