Digital Automatic Direct / Residual Shear Machine


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


General Description


This microprocessor based advanced model, is driven by a high-resolution stepper motor with epicyclical no backlash reduction gearbox.

It incorporates a pneumatic closed loop control system for the automatic application of normal load by a high performance pressure regulator, therefore eliminating the need for manual application of dead weights.

This system can also perform different types of automatic shear tests since it is possible, to control the different parameters measured during, the test: for example the constant volume shear test, where the height of the sample is kept constant during the shear stage.

The machine is supplied with shear box adaptor, load cell, linear transducer for horizontal and vertical displacement.

The shear box assemblies are not included and have to be selected and ordered separately.

The machine also requires an air supply, 10-bar max. pressure, 50 l/min capacity.




• RAM memory with battery backup with clock/calendar, which operates also when the unit is switched off
• Analogical channel for strain gauge load cell and displacement transducers with 130.000 points resolution for each channel
• Serial output port 38.400-baud rate for connection to PC
• Fully automatic management of the complete test (from consolidation to failure)
• Automatic pneumatic application of vertical loading without friction
• Different and independent data recording mode for consolidation and failure
• Different protocols of data downloading via RS 232 serial port
• Automatic application of preset consolidation steps (up to 50). Each single step of axial force can be applied: instantaneously or by means of a linear ramp in a pre-set time interval
• Easy and immediate set up of the test parameters via the large digital graphic display
• Straight connection between shear box, drive unit and load cell for the axial transmission of the horizontal force along the shearing plane.
