TORSIONAL TESTING MACHINES
The TM Series is the optimal solution for both static and fatigue torsion testing. These torsional testing machines are available in a broad range of load capacities, offering torque capabilities of up to 700 Nm. STEP Lab’s torsional testing systems are meticulously engineered to deliver precise and reliable results for testing both products and specimens.
Torsion test systems
When it comes to torsional testing machines, look no further than our TM Series. Our torsional testing machines are designed to meet the most demanding testing requirements. The compact design ensures they fit seamlessly into any laboratory setup, providing exceptional frame rigidity and alignment. Equipped with advanced control electronics from STEP Lab, our torsional testing machines are the preferred choice for biomedical, automotive, aerospace, plastics, metal materials, and fastener industries.
- The dual linear guide design offers high torsional rigidity and low axial friction.
- The direct application of torque from the brushless motor, without any interposed transmission, allows a true ZERO BACKLASH system.
- The adjustable reaction support locking system allows for floating or fixed operation.
- Available torque transducers from 0.2- 1000 Nm provide superior accuracy in a very wide range of tests.
- The Test Centre software, with torsion testing functions, provides state-of-the-art options for high-level torsion testing.
- The torsion cell protection tool prevents damage to low-capacity torsion cells during test setup.
- Optional preload system: with pneumatic actuation and manual adjustment of the preload value.
- It is also possible to integrate the additional axial load cell to obtain the actual and accurate preload on the sample.
