Hydraulic Universal Testing Machine – Model 150 SL and 300 SL

The Models 150SL and 300SL from Tinius Olsen are built for tension, flexure, compression, and shear strength testing on materials and assemblies. The sturdy design adds quality materials and components to guarantee that the company’s reputation for ease of use, superior system performance, and longevity is maintained.

Features and Benefits

  • Model 150SL - Ideal for tension, transverse, shear, compression, and other tests to a maximum force of 150 kN/30,000 lbf
  • Model 300SL - Suitable for tension, compression, shear, transverse, and other tests to a maximum force of 300 kN/60,000 lbf
  • Four-column sturdy design allows larger samples to be tested
  • Various system control options are available, from a handheld wireless Bluetooth interface, or a tethered handheld interface operating with a virtual machine interface application on a connected PC
  • Friction-free piston operation allows smooth, controlled operation and negligible downtime

Options and Accessories

  • Crossheads can be closed/semi-open/or fully open for easier specimen loading and unloading 1
  • External grips and fixtures can be easily mounted securely
  • In-head pocket grips can be supplied to accommodate flat or round tensile specimens
  • Complete range of precision extensometers and deflectometers are available using video, encoder, laser, strain gage and/or LVDT technologies
  • Columns can be extended by up to 914 mm/36” to expand test area size1

Note – screw extensions require holes in the floor

  • Furnaces and environmental chambers can be installed for tests at low or high temperatures
  • Safety enclosures with interlocks can be installed to safeguard operators from violent specimen breaks
  • Top crosshead can be made modifiable and columns can be notched to allow the modifiable top crosshead to be repositioned for more comfortable working heights1
  • Tinius Olsen’s Horizon software can be connected to the tester by the operator

Hydraulic Universal Testing Machine – Model 150 SL

Familiar handheld interface that is tethered to the machine. With its larger, tactile, sealed keypad, this interface is ideal for operators who use gloves to load and unload specimens and prefer a push button keypad. It requires virtual machine control software running on a connected PC to operate the basic machine functions and report basic numerical test data.
Wireless handheld interface that is connected to the machine by a Bluetooth link. The interface features an Android-based operating platform and can be used to control the machine by itself or in conjunction with Tinius Olsen’s Horizon software
