Engineered to satisfy the specific requirements of the foam testing industry, the ADMET eXpert 5600F series combines their proven 5600 series actuators with a wide-base frame designed specifically compressing large foam samples.
In their years of experience working with leaders in the foam industry, it has become clear that traditional universal testing machines are not flexible enough to be an all-in-one solution for foam testing.
Specifically, most systems do not offer enough horizontal testing space to accommodate larger foam samples or provide the capability to perform tension testing. Those that do are designed with other applications in mind and are prohibitively expensive. The eXpert 5600F series solves these issues by combining a frame designed specifically for foam specimens with their proven tension / compression actuators and machine controllers.
5600F series machines can quickly switch to a tension testing configuration, allowing you to perform tension and compression tests on virtually all types of foam samples on one system. Systems equipped with MTESTQuattro, their most advanced pc-based testing controller, feature built-in test procedures and analysis calculations for popular testing standards such as ASTM D3574.
Other key features include:
- 24" x 24" perforated lower base platen
- Tensile grips wide enough for thick foams
- Change between tensile and compression tests quickly
- Upper platen with swivel joint for non-level foam
