HSM31 Torsion Testing Machine (30Nm)

HSM31 Torsion Testing Machine (30Nm)

A sturdy bench mounted unit for studying applied torque against angle of twist, specimen failure, and test graphs. Torque is applied via the moment head to differing material test specimens using hand operated worm and wheel gearbox. The input angle of twist and revolutions can be viewed on integral protractors and a revolution counter on the moment head.
The torsion head measures the applied torque to the specimen using strain gauge technology. The unit can cater for test specimens of up to 750mm. Standard hexagon drives are used for transmitting the torque into the specimens. An angular compensation system is integral to the torsion head with a dial gauge. The strain gauge signals are fed directly into the Data Acquisition Interface supplied. Data Acquisition Software is supplied to capture the test parameters and to display the graphs relevant to further work.
