The dual column materials testing machines have frame capacities of 10kN, 25kN and 50kN (2000 lbf, 5,000 lbf and 10,000lbf) and include two model types, the S series and the T series. These machines are designed to test a wide range of materials in tension, compression, flexure, shear and peel. S Series
Using a combination of quality engineering and advanced technology, Tinius Olsen offers a series of machines that are accurate and simple to use. All S series machines feature an easy-to-read backlit liquid crystal display which can be switched between a numerical and graphical display. All data shown on this display is obtained in real time, with the autoranging graphical display showing the test curve of the specimen under test. The control unit features dedicated keys for moving the crosshead up, down, stop, performing the test as well as keys for load and extension tare and crosshead return. The control panel also features an alpha-numeric keypad to allow the input of test conditions, test data and the formatting of the test report. The control unit can retain up to five separate test routines for easy and rapid recall.
Powerful as stand-alone units, the machine capability is enhanced by direct connection of a printer through which comprehensive test reports and high resolution graphs can be quickly obtained. The S series of testers are also designed for users all over the world...an optional language module can be plugged into the control panel and all data on the backlit LCD display will be shown in the selected language. Language options include: English, French, Portuguese, German, Italian, Spanish and Polish.
Building on the quality and technology that is built into the S series, Tinius Olsen offers the T series of machines to complement the popular and successful S series. The T series models have similar specifications to the S series, but they talk directly with a standard PC running a data analysis software package, via a high speed RS232 in both ASCII and super high speed binary modes.
The S and T series use rapid change Z beam loadcells that allow for simple and quick 'sizing' of the machine to an appropriate capacity for the test. These loadcells have an accuracy of +/-0.5% of the applied load value, from 2% to 100% of the loadcell capacity.
The S and T series have a huge assortment of specimen grips and fixtures available, allowing the selection of an ideal grip for your application.
