High Elongation U Series

Tinius Olsen provides all kinds of customizations for our testing equipment and the most recent series to be modified is the U series.
The U series machines are floor standing tension and compression materials testing machines, used to test the physical strength of a vast range of materials, and are available in maximum capacities from 100kN to 300kN.  Until now the maximum crosshead travel has been limited to 1,200mm, but with these new custom frames, this maximum has increased to 2,000mm.
To achieve this 66% increase in test height, without increasing the machine height (of 2.85m) the machine’s controls and electronics are removed from the test frame and relocated into a separate housing, as seen in the artist rendition here.  All other machine performance specifications remain the same.
