ETS Universal Wood Tester is a screw type motor driven and is suitable for conducting Tensile strength and Elongation,Compression, Bend, Shear and other tests on various materials such as metal rubber, plastic, leather, asbestos, PVC, paper, textile, wire/cable, ceramics, rexins etc. in conformity with standards such as BIS, BSS, ASTM, DIN, ISO, EN etc.
The tester may also be used for conducting variety of tests including Compression (Parallel-to-Grain), Shear Strength, Hardness (Janka Ball Test), Cleavage, Static Bend, Plywood Grips, Nail/Screw withdrawal Test and many other tests on Wood, Plywood, MDF, etc.
The load measurement system utilizes a four-figure peak picking digital voltmeter which displays maximum load until reset. The use of digital roadouts for load and deflection(optional) eliminates the high risk of error involved when interpolating from graphs, dials and scales.
The elongation is read from a scale graduated in millimeter.
The machine can also be provided with optional attachments like Strip Chart Recorder and Digital Elongation Readout Display. The motive power (drive system) is provided by a D.C. shunt wound motor for constant torque characteristics which is coupled to a lubrication-sealed-for-life gear unit.
Straining speed (cross-head speed) is infinitely variable by means of a calibrated speed control knob from 0 to 100 mm/min or as desired.Return to original setting is at full speed. (This machine having one straining speed may be supplied at a reduced price).
The front panel control consists of STRAIN, STOP AND RETURN push buttons, MAINS lamp, ZERO button and PEAKHOLD/ NORMAL switch and output for use of optional printer. .
An adjustable upper limit setting trip enable users to preset specimen length and a lower adjustable trip prevents any crosshead overtravel.The basic frame allows a total jaw seperation of 1000 mm. However, extended frame having jaw seperation upto 2000 mm may be supplied at additional cost.
The machine is operated on 230 volts. 1-ph, 50 c/s. A. C. Mains or as desired.
A comprehensive range of grips, attachments/fixtures, cutting dies are available to suit the testing needs of many different industries.
Capacity available upto 100KN ( 10000 Kgf)
