The MAGNUS Universal Testing Frame is constructed of a twinned steel channel frame fastened with high tensile fixings. This creates an overall structure size of 4.61m long, 2.53m high and 1.2m wide and a working space of 4.0m long x 1.6m high.
The 0.60m spacing between the verticals allows for wide test specimens to be tested. The base feet distribute the selfweight of about 1 tonne to four anti-vibration leveling feet. The top channel members are used to carry either a single or double acting hydraulic ram carriage (not supplied).
To accompany the HPM1 a comprehensive range of accessories (HPM2) are also included. These accessories include load supports, reaction plates, clamps, dial gauge support bars, half round and full round bearings, height spacing units and clamps. All these accessories enable specimens to be set up quickly and easily in a variety of arrangements. They also accompany many of the experiments available for use within the HPM1 frame. A set of hollow steel dial gauge support bars are included to allow optionally available dial gauges to be mounted anywhere within the frame.
