4000 kN WORK STATION: AUTOMATIC, FULLY COMPUTERIZED SYSTEM
Specially designed to satisfy demands of major laboratories having large amounts of standard samples to be tested and thus requiring optimum efficiency.
Equipped with high precision, state-of-the-art electronic and mechanical components, this
model is undoubtedly the most advanced compression testing unit ever manufactured anywhere in the world.
Testing time is reduced to the absolute minimum necessary for compressing the sample until failure load is reached.
This model has the same features as the automatic, computerised machine with feedback system and four column frame
(pag. 418 - 419), but weighing and measuring of 15 and 20 cm/side samples is also automatic.
WEIGHING is carried out by means of an electronic cell whereas MEASUREMENT of sides is carried out by a LASER BEAM
and height by an OPTICAL MEASURING DEVICE: the data are stored automatically via the management software.
A CONVEYOR BELT facilitates sample movement before the test. Accurate positioning of sample on the tester is obtained
by means of a specially-designed HYDRAULIC POSITIONER (15 and 20 cm/side) which also discharges previously broken
sample on to the bench top and simultaneously cleans test platen; a second HYDRAULIC ARM pushes the broken samples
along the bench top.
Tests on samples different from 15 and 20 cm/side are carried out automatically, even if the load cell, the laser beam and
the hydraulic positioner are not activated.
Automatic load pacer and transferral of compression and strain data to PC. Obviously, a hard copy of certiicates for stored
tests may be obtained via the ink-jet printer.
The PC controls three different operations simultaneously:
- data input for one sample
- measuring and weighing of a second sample.
- compression and strain data acquisition and control for a third sample.
Optimal productivity, after veriication, is approx. 500 samples in 8 hours for 15 x 15 cm or 20 x 20 cm samples.
