These universal materials testing machines are ideal for testing applications up to 100 kN (22480 lbf) and are designed for both routine quality control testing, automated testing and for performing complex multi-stage testing.
All LD Series testing machines feature an extra-large working area of 452 mm (17.8 in) and crosshead travel up to 1070 mm (42 in) extendable to 1669 mm (65.7 in). The LD5 is ideal for testing applications up to 5 kN/1124 lbf.
The high stiffness frame of the Lloyd Instruments/Ametek LD5 Twin Column Bench Mounted testing machines incorporates a crosshead guidance system to prevent side loading of the test sample. Interchangeable pancake load cells ensure high accuracy and optimize the test machines for tension, compression and cycling through to zero force measurements. An advanced electrical design couples an AC drive with preloaded ball screws for better displacement accuracy.
