These universal materials testing machines ideal for testing applications up to 100 kN (22480 lbf) are designed for both routine quality control testing, automated testing and for performing complex multi-stage testing. The cost effective LD Series testing machines can be mounted above a floor standing compression cage for large sample or complete assembly testing.
Universal Test Machines - Up to 100 kNLD Series (bench mounted)

The dual column test stands are designed to measure medium or high force ranges on large materials where high precision is required. The dual column test stands come in bench mounted and floor standing models.

The LD Series testing machines come in five bench mounted models:

  • the LD5 (up to 5 kN/1124 lbf)
  • the LD10 (up to 10 kN/2248 lbf)
  • the LD30 (up to 30 kN/6744 lbf)
  • the LD50 (up to 50 kN/11240 lbf)
  • the LD100 (up to 100 kN/22480 lbf).

All LD Series testing machines feature an extra-large working area of 452 mm (17.8 in) and crosshead travel up to 1070 mm (42 in) extendable to 1669 mm (65.7 in).

The high stiffness frame incorporates a crosshead guidance system to prevent side loading of the test sample.

Interchangeable pancake load cells ensure high accuracy and optimize the test machines for tension, compression and cycling through to zero force measurements.

An advanced electrical design couples an AC drive with preloaded ball screws for better displacement accuracy

LD Series Key Features:

  • Simple to set up, operate and maintain
  • High stiffness frame
  • High performance AC drive
  • Compliant to CE machinery directive

All available modules are included in the NexygenPlus software price. The flexible NexygenPlus software interacts with Excel and Word. The extensive library of pre-set test set-ups adherent to a wide selection of international standards.

A tablet option is available for the LD Series, turning the machine into a stand-alone test machine that loads all test data directly into the tablet eliminating the need for a computer. Test results can be exported into both pdf and .csv files.
