MULTI ACTUATOR SYSTEMS
Step Lab offers various solutions for complex material and product testing. We realize structures with up to eight actuators, thanks to our control system and Test Center software.
The flexibility of our systems allows several actuators of different sizes to work simultaneously:
- EA Series – Electromechanical actuators
- BV Series – Torsional actuators
- UD, HUD, and XUD Series – Electrodynamic actuators based on linear motors.
STEP Lab offers the widest range of systems for dynamic and fatigue tests up to 200 kN. We are a leading manufacturer of electrical machines based on linear motors and actuators with which we cover a wide range of material and product testing applications.
Electromechanical actuators are suitable for tests with accelerations up to 2 g with dynamic loads up to 200kN and are versatile for multi-actuator applications.
Our linear motors, on the other hand, reach accelerations of tens of G, frequencies of 300 Hz and continuous loads of 40 kN with peaks of 80 kN.
Axial torsion systems
The best solution for tensile and torsion testing. BV systems are available in a wide range of loads, with torque capacities up to 200 Nm, the compact design requires minimal space and offers a high level of rigidity and alignment.
Multi-axis testing systems
Most engineering structures are affected by complex multi-axial stresses that arise from load inhomogeneity, geometry and material.
Planar cruciform systems
Biaxial, low-load testing machine with four high-resolution linear drives horizontally arranged for uniaxial and biaxial testing of natural and artificial elastic tissues
