Xforce load cells—the heart of the testing system
High-quality load cells are essential for achieving reliable, interpretable test results. To ensure that this core element is optimally integrated in the testing system, Zwick Roell has developed its own series of load cells: Xforce P (Precision), Xforce HP (High Precision), and Xforce K
- The highly accurate Xforce P load cells are intended for use in tests which do not involve high transverse forces. This includes many tensile tests (though not on shear specimens, for example) as well as compression, flexure, and component tests in which no high transverse forces, bending moments, or torsional moments occur.
- Xforce HP and Xforce K differ from Xforce P load cells primarily in their larger measurement range and greater resistance to parasitic influences, such as bending moments, torsional moments, and temperature variations. They are ideally suited to all static tensile, compression and flexure tests and are equally suitable for pulsating or cyclic tests with zero crossing.
- Before dispatch, each load cell is calibrated with the testing machine plus drive and the measurement and control electronics as a complete system. This is recorded in the supplied factory calibration certificate.
All components from a single source: Zwick Roell develops and produces all system components in-house: testXpert III testing software, testControl measurement and control electronics, Xforce load cells, and all mechanical components.
