Industrial Series DX Models have been specifically designed for applications involved in the testing of high-capacity tension, compression, band/flex and shear.
DX Models have been equipped with a dual test space and single footprint.
With an emphasis on operator safety, these frames incorporate high-quality materials and components that are ideal for the testing of metals, wire rods and fasteners, as well as concrete and wood materials.
Features and Benefits
The single footprint of the DX Models provides significantly more floor space by combining the load frame, hydraulic power supply and controller into a single package
The fully open-front grip design provides improved safety for operators and throughput by allowing a limited amount of jaw faces to cover specimens of a wide size range
Two test space design makes changing between tension and compression testing safer and more efficient – there is no need to remove heavy fixtures
Convenient working height and ergonomic controls increase operator comfort and productivity
The productivity panel is equipped with multiple function keys and displays that improve ergonomics, allow operators to easily perform common testing functions and evaluate key test information without having to return to the computer
Powerful, yet user-friendly materials testing software provides reproducible and repeatable results for simple to sophisticated testing requirements
Variable pressure hydraulic power supply provides pressure on demand, reducing heat generation, increasing oil life, and removing the need for water cooling
An optional closed head grip design is available
