301 Series Loadframes
Our load frames are versatile test systems used for a variety of applications, from simple monotonic proof tests, to highly complex Thermo Mechanical Fatigue (TMF) experiments. The systems can be configured to run standard ASTM tests as well as unique custom protocols. The load frames are paired with our industry leading controller, and pumps to create highly accurate and durable test instruments.
The load frame structure is specifically designed to provide maximum rigidity in a compact package for low force applications. The Series 301 features 2-column symmetrical construction with a fixed-platen and moveable crosshead on hydraulic lifts. The actuator is mounted in the crosshead with the load cell affixed to the platen.
The 301 Series table top load frames come in standard configurations (see Specifications) with other force combinations and configurations available on request. All units are delivered fully equipped including a linear actuator, servo valve, service manifold, load cell, and LVDT.
The 301 Series Load Frame can be supplied with a variety of accessories such as hydraulic crosshead locks, load cells, grips, furnaces, environmental chambers, and extensometers to meet your specific testing needs.
