A classic discipline of materials testing is the destructive testing method, in which specimens are mechanically tested to failure. The materials test provides data for hardness, rigidity and strength in a reproducible and precisely quantified manner.
The WP 310 unit, in conjunction with the accessories, offers experiments from destructive materials testing.
The clean layout and simple operation mean the experimental sequence can be observed in all details and phases. The power of the trainer allows tests to be performed on an industrial scale. Material specification data and laws can be verified using self-determined measured values.
The vertical, hydraulically operated trainer with direct force generation can produce both tensile and compressive forces. The height of the lower cross-member can be adjusted for coarse adjustment. Cylindrical receptacles on the cross-members allow for easy exchange of accessories.
The extensive accessories provide tensile and compression tests, Brinell hardness tests, bending, shear and cupping tests. Plate and coil springs can also be tested. The test load and elongation of the specimen are measured by sensors and are displayed.
The measured values are transmitted directly to a PC where they can be analysed using the software included.
