TORSIONAL TESTING MACHINES

The best solution for STATIC and FATIGUE torsion testing. TM TorsionMachine systems are available in a wide range of loads, with torque capabilities up to 700 Nm. The compact design requires minimal space in the laboratory and offers high levels of frame rigidity and alignment. Equipped with STEP Lab’s high-performance control electronics, the TM series provides accurate test and control data for testing products and specimens such as wires, fasteners, switches and springs.

The industries where they mainly find application are biomedical, automotive and aerospace, but torsion tests are also common in the plastics, metal materials and fastener industries.

Benefit

  • 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 floating or fixed operation.
  • Available torque transducers from 0.2- 1000 Nm provide superior accuracy over 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 achieve the actual and accurate preload on the sample.
