TENSILE TESTS ON STEEL REINFORCED BARS, UP TO 500 KN MAX. CAPACITY LOAD.COMPRESSION TESTS ON CONCRETE CUBES / CYLINDERS 1500 KN MAX. CAPACITY LOAD.
STANDARDS: EN 10002 | EN ISO 6892-1, 7500-1, 15630-1 | ASTM C39, E4 | BS 1610 | NF P18-411 | DIN 51220 | AASHTO T22
This machine of compact design, is utilized to carry out tensile tests on steel reinforced bars from diameter 6 to 25* mm. and flat max. 25×15*
mm. It can also carry out compression tests on concrete cube specimens max. side 150 mm. and cylinders max. diameter 160×320 mm.
The four columns loading frame is overdimensioned to assure high rigidity and stability. The loading piston, double action, is rectified and
lapped. The piston is foreseen of an hydraulic maximum and minimum piston stroke’s security device, by avoiding any damage risk due to
wrong manipulations of the unit. An hydraulic selector allows to select the tensile or the compression test. The heads holding the jaws are
obtained from only one block of high tungsten steel, while the jaws are hardened over 65 HRC. The “V” autoclamping form allows a quick and
practical churking of the specimen. Hardware technical details: see p. 18.
The machine is supplied complete with pair of jaw-holders, but without accessoires for the tensile and compression tests, which must be
ordered separately (see accessories).
*Note: Ø 25 mm (and flat 25×15 mm) suitable only for traditional rebars (with max. resistance around 540 Mpa), in case of testing high
resistance rebars (with max. resistance 800/850 Mpa), max. diameter is 20 mm (and flat 25×12 mm).

H014
ELECTRONIC EXTENSOMETER
Measuring base 50 mm, Deformation range +1 mm / -0.2 mm
Maximum percent measurable deformation: +2%
It gives the possibility to take the longitudinal deformations of the
specimen during the tensile test. A graph load/deformation is
obtained and from this
graph the coefficient of
elasticity together with the
loads RP0.1 – RP0.2 – Rt1
can be identified even
on materials that are not
presenting a yield point that
can be clearly identified.
The appliance is delivered
complete with connection
cables.

ELECTRONIC EXTENSOMETER FOR TENSILE
DEFORMATION STRENGTH TESTS UNTIL BREAKAGE
This electronic coaxial extensometer is used to measure the deformation
of a specimen under tensile test until breakage.
The extensometer is directly fixed to the test specimen and it
remains connected until breakage, by measuring the deformation
both in the elastic and in the plastic phases. Measuring base for
round specimens: 5 x specimen diameter. Supplied complete with
4 spacers for the intermediate sample diameters of the specific
measuring range, connection cable, accessories, carrying case.

STANDARDS: EN 10002-1 | ISO 527, 178, 604, 898-1, 3506-1,

This Software has been developed on the base of Microsoft
Windows operating system.
This interactive software is the ideal solution for an effective and
complete management of the material testing.
It is composed by many test procedures in conformity with the
International Standards for metal, plastic, cement, wood and
composed materials.
This software supports a wide range of calculation and profiles for
tensile, compression and flexural tests.
The user can create new personalised test profiles: definition of
the test data such as test date, certificate number, lot of material
delivered, specimen origin, test temperature, etc. and definition of
the specific dates of the specimen as type, dimensions measuring
unit, etc.
The user can select and set the calculation corresponding to the
activated standard. As an example for the Standard EN 10002-1
he can select the initial length, the initial section of the specimen,
the calculation of the maximum load, the unit load, the elastic limits
(ReH, ReL, Rp%), the restriction, the Young’s Modulus, etc.
For some calculations the end user may set test execution parameters
for the corresponding calculation algorithms, for example the
percentage (%) for the standard deviation of the Rp proportionality.
The software allows a speedy and easy management of all the
machine parameters such as the management of the load acquisition
by means of a load cell, the specimen deformations by means
of an extensometer and the crossbar displacement. For each one
of the analogical channels, the user can set the calibration and visualisation
measuring unit, the limits of use: alarm, start limit of the
test calculation, etc.
The test process is divided in different phases or speed charts,
where the user can set the required type of control (pace rate, load/
time, deformation/time), the tare and the zero option, the limits and
the phase or speed changes.
The end of the test mode or the breaking limit can also be selected.
The software allows user to personalise and set the displayed
parameters of the test graph as the colour, the title of the Cartesian
axis, the colours of the load/deformation limits and the certificate
parameters such as titles, margins etc.
At the end of the test, the user can decide if the selected calculations
must be performed or filed. In any moment all the tests made
are available to make an analysis of the results or to print their
certificate.
Graphic analysis of the test can be made by means of the zoom
function.
