Zwick presents a servo hydraulic testing machine, type HC 10, which with its maximum fatigue resisting force of 10 kN is one of our smallest servo hydraulic testers but at the same time one of the most versatile. Suitable for almost all test jobs, the HC 10 is a compact, lightweight testing machine that is particularly flexible in its application. The hydraulic working cylinder is built into the vertically adjustable upper crosshead of this table-top model.
Zwick servo hydraulic testing machines, which come in a wide range of models up to 1000 kN maximum force and 400 mm testing travel, are well suited for tensile, compression, and bending tests at continuous, static, dynamic, and alternating loads for static, quasi-static, and dynamic load applications. This versatile line can handle an almost infinite number of different applications, ranging from rubber-metal absorbing elements and car parts and components of any type to elastomers, metals, plastics, composite materials, and adhesive tapes, to mention only a few.
This testing machine family can optionally be equipped with hydraulic cylinders running in synthetic slide bearings or hydrostatic bearings with LVDT extensometers concentrically integrated in the cylinder. Servo valves and hydraulic units are used according to the customer’s specification. Protective coverings, temperature chambers, and application-specific specimen mounts are optionally available.
