Universal Test Machines Test up to 100 kN


Lloyd Instruments has introduced five cost-effective machines to its line of universal test machines for materials testing up to 100 kN. The LD5 universal test machine is ideal for materials testing up to 5 kN; the LD10 version is suited for testing up to 10 kN; the LD30 is for materials testing up to 30 kN; and the LD50 and LD100 has it covered for material tests all the way up to 50 and 100 kN.


These powerful universal test machines are especially suited for metals and adhere to ISO6892, which specifies the method for tensile testing of metallic materials. Applications include the testing of cables, chains, coils, fabricated metals, fasteners, such as nuts, bolts, screws and nails, basic and cast metals, pipes, springs, tubes, and wire. Some of the most common test types are cupping test, flexural/bend strength, N value and tensile testing. All test types can be performed on LD Series universal test machines.


All the machines feature a large working area that is 452 mm wide and a crosshead travel of 1,070 mm that is extendable to 1,669 mm. This provides the machines with the flexibility for complex testing of small or medium-sized samples, as well as for heavy-duty testing on large samples. With their rugged design, LD Series test machines are built for long life and reliable operation. In addition, the LD Series offers an advanced electrical design with a modern AC drive and preloaded ball screws to ensure better speed and displacement accuracy. A high stiffness frame helps prevent frame deflection and crosshead movement, while the use of pancake load cells improves accuracy at the cross axis and increases work area. The new LD test machines are designed for ease of use. They help automate testing, reduce costs and save time. A CANBUS interface provides fast, accurate communication between the LD Series test machine and such add-on accessories as extensometers and temperature chambers.

LD Series test machines are supplied with the NEXYGENPlus analysis software, which makes advanced analysis and reporting quick and simple to perform. An extensive library of preprogrammed test setups ensures error-free testing, while built-in test wizards guide users through advanced customized test setups. Test results can be automatically exported directly into Microsoft Word or Excel using userdefined corporate templates or pre-defined NEXYGENPlus templates for analysis and reporting. Video and still capture provide additional analysis features that allow users to examine a product after a test has been carried out. Large graphs display test results in an easy-to-read setup, and users are able to follow the test results live on the screen. Clear colour marking separates good and bad test results for easy Go / No go decisions.
