Chatillon TCM Series Motorized Test Stands
The TCM series is well adapted for production environments. This low cost, motorized, ergonomic tester attached with our Chatillon DF Series digital force gauges makes tensile, compression, peel, and flexural testing of your samples an easy task.
The motorized TCM Series force testers feature a small footprint while retaining ample clearance for large samples. With an ideal 100 mm (3.9 in) throat clearance, testing of large samples is no longer a limitation. The universal adapter plate with International threads sizes to ASM and Metric threads sizes provide flexibility for installing custom and standard fixtures.
The force testers are equipped with tactile buttons with haptic feedback that has no moving parts or membranes. This maximizes durability, especially in production environments, and ensures that the buttons can be easily cleaned. The haptic feedback offers a vibration to alert the user that the command has been received. The TCM Series force testers may also be operated with an optional footswitch controller.
A bright LED digital display indicates the travel speed and other text messages for the user to continuously monitor the status of the TCM tester. A high rate return speed is built into the TCM force testers to maximize production throughput. Adjustable Upper and Lower mechanical limit switches are integrated for safety and are used for different modes of operation as Cycling and Return To Zero.
With a small foot print, Cycle and Auto Return Modes, Universal Auto Switching A/C input and durable tactile buttons with haptic feedback, the TCM Series is ideal for your testing needs.
The motorized TCM Series force testers are available in two versions; the TCM100 with a force capacity of up to 100 lbf (500 N), and the TCM350 with capacity up to 350 lbf (1500 N).
Both force testers feature a standard crosshead travel of 406 mm (16 in) and are available in extended editions with a crosshead travel of 812 mm (32 in). A throat depth at a full 100 mm (3.9 in) enables the operator to perform force tests including tension, compression, bending, peeling, adhesion, insertion and extraction on samples up to 200 mm (7.8 in). This leaves the operator with a wide variety of testing options at a large working area while keeping a compact footprint.
Travel speed is adjustable from 0.2 to 20 in/min or to 5 to 500 mm/min.
