Description

Load frame for performing uniaxial mechanical tests – tension, compression, bending.  Various grips are available and T-slot table allows for custom fixtures.  Maximum load 100 kN with less than 1% error in force measurements; clip-on extensometer allows strain measurement to better than 0.5%.  Video capture system allows recording of experiments and syncing video data to mechanical data.
