The Gibitre™ Tension / Compression System (TCS) features a twin screw frame structure which allows for the application of load cells up to 10,000 N (10 kN). A wide range of optional load cells, operating in traction and compression, are available.
The Gibitre™ TCS features:
- Automatic detection of the load cell installed;
- 5 kN load cell operating in traction and compression (standard version);
- Measurement of the crosshead position with 0.0025 mm resolution;
- Adjustable speed from 2 to 1000 mm/min;
- Safety limit switch for adjustment of the slide stroke and automatic return on termination of the test;
- Protection hatch.
The Gibitre™ TCS optional features include:
- Stretch gauge for differential extension measurement with resolution 0.01 mm;
- Wide range of load cells operating in traction and compression up to 10 kN ;
- Thickness gauge for direct acquisition of sample thickness;
- Pneumatics grips with regulation of closure pressure;
- Wide range of grips for traction, compression, peeling, stress relaxation tests for standard or customer defined tests;
- Support stand for instrument and PC.
The software includes a wide range of predefined test procedures in compliance with international standards (traction, compression, peeling, hysteresis, flexion, etc.) and the option of creating fully personalized test procedures for nonstandard tests.
Direct sample thickness acquisition from the optional digital thickness gage performs automatic calculation of the cross-section depending on the type of sample selected, which reduces test times and the possibility of operator introduced error.
Display and printing in different colors of the relative test curves affords rapid and simplified test identification, while the automatic, real-time, assessment of compliance with tolerance limits and predefined relative statistical elaboration (average, median, standard deviation, max, min, Cp and Cpk) virtually automated the testing process!
The automatic generation of tolerance limits produced from the acquired statistics (average and standard deviation) of historical data further uncomplicates the SPC web.
The Gibitre™ Tension / Compression System (TCS) also features computerized calibration and diagnostics… assuring ongoing precision and accuracy.
