Product Details

Direct / Residual Shear Machine


CEN-ISO/TS 17892-10
ASTM D3080
BS 1377:7
NF P094 071-1/2


General Description


This machine, controlled by the Automax high resolution control system, is driven by a stepper motor and worm reduction unit, can accommodate all standard specimens up to 10 cm square and 10 cm Ø.

The vertical load is directly applied to the specimen through a load frame carrying weights and can be increased using the beam loading device, which is used to amplify the vertical load on the shear testing machines. It can receive up to 50 kg of weight so that the total load on the specimen can reach 550 kgf or 5500 N.

The machine is supplied with shear box adaptor, 10:1 lever loading device, ASTM balancing frame, but without electronic load cell, displacement transducers for horizontal and vertical displacement, shear box assembly and weights.

All these items have to be ordered separately.
