TorsionLine torsion testing machine from 20 to 500 Nm

TorsionLine testing machines with maintenance-free AC servo drives are designed for single-axis torsion tests under weight loading. The torque range is 20 Nm to 2,000 Nm. The torsion axis on the TorsionLine testing machine is positioned horizontally.

TorsionLine TL1000 materials testing machine

Significant Advantages and Features

Description

Maximum stiffness ensures very accurate high rotation angle measurement resolution over the entire torque range, while high resolution allows excellent repeat accuracy to be achieved.

TorsionLine testing machines are equipped with an electrically interlocked safety device. Testing can only begin if the device is in the closed position.

testControl measurement and control electronics are used for torsion testing.

Principal areas of application for TorsionLine

  • Plastics
  • Metallic materials, for example, reverse torsion test on wire, EN 2002-13
