Lloyd Instruments, a world leader in the field of materials testing, will be showing two of its recently launched LS1 single column materials testing machines at PlastIndia 2012. The LS1 Instruments will be configured for friction testing, flexural testing and tensile testing, highlighting their versatility for plastics, rubber and packaging materials testing applications.
Also on show will be the Chatillon TCD225 Series Digital Force Tester for testing to 1 kN (225 lbf), and an LRXPlusPOGO materials tester equipped with a compression cage for testing large or awkwardly shaped samples, which do not fit within the standard working area of the machine.
The universal LS1 is the latest addition to Lloyd Instruments' comprehensive range of materials testing machines and can be used for routine quality control testing or complex multi-stage tests in manufacturing, product development and research. Designed for tensile and compression testing, friction, tearing, peeling, insertion/extraction, creep/relaxation and many other measurements under 1kN force, the LS1 offers high precision displacement measurement and a load accuracy of ± 0.5 down to 1% of load cell value.
Although capable of stand-alone operation, the LS1 instruments will be demonstrated under PC control, using the latest version of Lloyd Instruments' NEXYGENPlus materials testing software. Windows 7 compatible and featuring an improved and intuitive User Configurable Test functionality, NEXYGENPlus includes a comprehensive library of test standards and allows flexible, intuitive setup and control of the LS1.
The Chatillon TCD225 Series Digital Force Tester is a stand-alone force testing system optimized for production, quality control and engineering applications. With a measuring accuracy better than 0.1% full scale, the TCD225 features a wide range of standard test setups including load limits, distance limits, time limits, break tests, rupture tests, cycling and loop tests. A multi-stage testing function allows customer test set-ups to be created with no external PC control or software.
