eXpert 2650 Wide Universal Testing System

eXpert 2650 Series Wide Testing System

eXpert 2650 Series Wide UTMs are a great option for customers who require a large testing space as well as precise load and position measurements. The column to column dimension can be widened by 12” increments. Large t-slot or tapped hole base plates are often supplied with this configuration to allow the user the space and freedom to test large and oddly shaped test specimens and final products.

Custom Large H-Frame Furniture Tester

Custom Large H-Frame Furniture Tester

This customized test frame has a repositionable actuator that moves independent of the crosshead, giving users maximum flexibility in test preparation and specimen dimension. Static testing can be performed with ADMET’s eXpert 5600 series actuators, while faster and more dynamic tests can be handled by eXpert 5900 series actuators.

ASTM D6128 Bulk Solid Shear Tester

eXpert 5600 Bulk Solid Shear Testing System

Adapted from “ASTM D6128 – Standard Test Method for Shear Testing of Bulk Solids Using the Jenike Shear Tester”, the Bulk Solid Shear Tester is a bi-axial  system with a fixture designed per ASTM D6128 and a vertical actuator that applies consolidation force to eliminate the need for user to apply a heavy dead weight stack. The ASTM D6128 testing system is capable of both cohesive shear and wall friction tests by changing out test coupons.

“Squirmin’ Herman” test system

eXpert 5600 Small Specimen Fatigue Testing

eXpert 5600 configured for very slow tensile tests on order of 10^-5 mm/mm/sec strain rate on specimens that are about 2mm in gauge length features a unique grip design with an alignment fixture to connect to the two opposing grips to ensure perfect alignment. It also incorporates alignment fingers to ensure that the specimen would be perfectly vertical in the plane of the grip faces.

eXpert 8600 watch band traction torsion tester

eXpert 8600 for Solid Ice Specimen Testing

The eXpert 8600 configuration for testing solid ice specimens was amongst the slowest moving 8600 series machines built with speeds down to 0.8 degrees per minute. The testing system was equipped with an environmental chamber and a custom-designed fixture for ice specimens to allow very precise angular movements. In addition, backlash kits with adjustable spring loaded fixtures were included to preload the axial actuator in compressive and torsion CW and CCW directions.
