HB series: 50 to 2500 kN

Standard versions of the HB load frame in the 50 to 2,500kN range have the testing actuator located above the test area. The version with integrated T-slotted platform allows flexure tests and component testing to be performed in addition to standard fatigue tests.
HB series servo-hydraulic testing machines

Technical overview

The test frame features extremely high stiffness and natural resonance; high-accuracy alignment avoids unwanted flexural stresses in the specimen.

Description

With the testing actuator mounted in the lower crosshead and the load cell on the upper crosshead, the HA range of load frames represents the classical servo-hydraulic testing machine as used for determining material properties under fatigue loads, e.g. S-N test (fatigue test), fracture mechanics, LCF (low-cycle fatigue).

Advantages & features

  • 4 standard nominal ratings from 50 kN to 500 kN
  • testing actuator mounted on upper crosshead
  • convenient working height
  • hydraulic clamping and adjustment for easy positioning of upper crosshead
  • comprehensive range of accessories, including hydraulic grips, compression platens, flexure test kit etc.
  • safety housing for compliance with CE Machinery Directive
  • version with integrated T-slotted specimen ideal for fatigue tests on components
