Industrial Series KPX Models
Designed for high-capacity tension, compression, bend/flex, and shear testing, the KPX Models feature an ultra-large single test space and adjustable crosshead options. Understanding the critical importance of operator safety, these frames incorporate high-quality materials, components, and craftsmanship and are ideal for testing metals, wire, concrete, fasteners, wood, and composites.
- Adjustable crosshead options allow the test space to be adapted to a wide range of test specimens, applications, and accessories
- Linear guidance system maintains precise alignment of load string over the entire stroke of the actuator
- Co-axially mounted encoder accurately measures actuator travel at the center of the load string
- Convenient working height and ergonomic controls improve operator productivity and comfort
- Long stroke, high-speed actuator accommodates both tension and compression testing applications
- Productivity panel with multiple function keys and displays improves ergonomics, and allows the operator to perform common testing functions and view key test information without returning to the computer
- Powerful, yet user-friendly materials testing software provides repeatable and reproducible results for simple to sophisticated testing requirements
