Servo-Hydraulic Universal Testing Machine

Clear

A new generation of Universal Testing Machine combining state of the art technology with proven reliability and precision for research and standard testing

The Servo-Hydraulic Universal Testing Machine (CRT-UTM-HYD) is a well designed, inexpensive machine specifically developed for the testing of materials used in pavement construction. A motorized, adjustable cross head reduces the time between test set-ups. The programmable temperature cabinet provides the possibility to perform frequency/temperature sweeps. Accurate waveforms are digitally generated and applied by the actuator producing repeatable conditions that are simulative of those created by moving or static vehicles. The actuator is double-acting allowing both compressive and tensile forces to be applied. Various systems are available for the measurement of the modulus of unbound materials.

Control System and Software

This machine can be controlled using our Standard Acquisition and Control System along with Universal Software™. Universal Software™ is user friendly, intuitive and reliable Windows® software developed using LabVIEW™. Universal test software for the development of test methods using static, sinusoidal, haversine, square, triangular with user selected frequencies and data collection rates. Stored test data can be imported into a spreadsheet package to be analysed by the user. Utilities are included for transducer check, diagnostic routines and calibration.

Alternatively, our next generation digital data acquisition and control unit cDAC™ Advanced Data Acquisition System brought together in alliance with our flagship software DIMENSION™ gives you the power to perform the most demanding of tests with your materials testing equipment.
cDAC™, our next generation class leading digital controller is unparalleled in its field and suitable for advanced testing required for research.
