TESTING MACHINES

Testing machine UTM-100

      Universal automated testing machine UTM-100 is intended for estimation of physical and mechanical properties and researches of destruction process of metals and alloys, composite materials with organic and inorganic matrixes and other materials at quasistatic loading in a wide range of loading rates. The machine provides automatic control of  loading parameters and acquiring of experimental data. The machine UTM-100 has been developed as base one. The machine can be equipped high-temperature and cryogenic chambers, special test equipment both additional control and measuring systems. A series of the specialized equipment for tests of various materials at extreme conditions  can be created on its basis. The testing machine has the loading unit with electromechanical drive, the automated control and measuring systems, manual operating console.

   
The basic characteristics of base model:
  • Maximum test load - 100 kN;
  • Crosshead displacement rate - from 0,04 up to 150 mm/min;
  • Total crosshead displacement – 800 mm;
  • Working place width – 480 mm;
  • Error of load measurements ± 0,5 %;
  • Resolution of the cross-head displacement measurements - 50 µm;
  • Error of deflection (elongation) measurements - less than ± 1 % (depends on type of used gauges and measuring systems).
