Machine Features

The key machine features of the M500-50 ATMS are as follows:

  • The M500-ATMS is an adapted version of Testometric™ standard M500-AT machine. It has five stations where tests can be done at the same time. The color display displays plots of all five tests in real time, calculated results, and statistics. A printer can be connected to create a complete test report. The machine is mainly useful for companies who undertake volume testing. It significantly minimizes test time and is very cost effective and space efficient when compared with using a number of machines. There is also a CT version available that works from the end users own PC system.
  • Touch screen display with active tester control panel and readout screen displaying real time test curves calculated results and statistics. Height modifiable and completely articulated.
  • Fully digital testing system with high precision control and accuracy, includes automated computer control of test methods giving simplicity of operation.
  • Integral PC system working full universal windows software with industry standard and customer specific test techniques pre-installed
  • High resolution auto ranging load cells with accuracies better than +/-0.5% down to 1/1000th of the load cell capacity
  • 800% overload capability of load cells without damage
  • Small footprint design, providing economy of floor and bench space
  • Automatic recognition and calibration of load cells and extensometers, with immediate calibration check facility
  • High efficiency pre-loaded self-cleaning ball screws for rapid, quiet testing. Fitted with sealed for life lubricated end bearings.
  • Crosshead guidance system offering smooth running and precise alignment
  • Precision crosshead control via digital AC servo drive and brushless servo motor offering maintenance free operation and 4,000,000 steps per revolution positional control
  • Six I/O channels for additional devices such as micrometers, extensometers, callipers, balances ec
  • High speed data collection systems for up to four synchronous channels
  • High stiffness loading frames with solid specialized steel crossheads and rigid extruded support columns with T-slots for accessory mounting.
  • Overload, overtravel, and impact protection
  • Telescopic covers offering extra protection for ball screws against testing debris and dust
  • Extensive range of grips and fixtures for tension, flexural, peel, shear, compression, and product testing etc.
  • A broad range of contacting and non-contacting extensometers is available including video and laser models
  • Optional full color printer system mounted on universal position swivel arm
