Materials Testing just got much faster...
Lloyd Instruments launches the LS5 High Speed Universal Testing Machine

A new single-column universal testing machine from Lloyd Instruments provides ultra-high speed testing along with flexibility, reliability and high accuracy test results for all materials testing applications up to 5 kN supporting test types such as tensile, compression, bend, friction, tearing, peeling, insertion/extraction, creep/relaxation and many other.

With a test and return speed of 2032 mm/min (80 in/min) the new LS5HS testing machine throughput and saves valuable time in production and quality testing functionalities where productivity can be optimized. As the LS5HS universal testing machine is designed to automate workflows, robots can be coupled to the machine to speed up the testing process even further, and automated, repetitive tests can be run in hours rather than days, helping to eliminate operator error, improve operator safety and reduce cost.

The LS5HS universal testing machine features a travel of 800 mm and a crosshead speed range from 0.01 up to 2032 mm/min. A throat depth of 150 mm provides a large working area, and the load accuracy of +/- 0.5 down to 1% of load cell value provides high dynamic range, reducing the number of load cells required to cover the force range.

The universal testing machine can be used as stand-alone controlled by a console. For more advanced testing, the NEXYGENPlus software https://www.ametektest.com/products/software can be added and test results can automatically be uploaded for easy analysis.

To facilitate the increasing need for automation in manufacturing, NEXYGENPlus offers powerful utilities for system integration including automated sample handling, in-line testing, monitoring of parameters from other sensors like thermocouples and strain gauges, and customization of user interface. Microsoft Office integration allows seamless transfer of data to Excel and Word using own or pre-defined templates, and test results can easily be sent to a colleague. Data can further be exported to LIMS, SPC or other data management systems.
