Industrial Series KX Models
Designed primarialy for high-capacity tension testing, KX Models feature a large, single test space and fixed height crosshead. Understanding the critical importance of operator safety, these frames incorporate high-quality materials, components, and craftsmanship and are ideal for testing rebar, steel plate, wire rod and strand.
- Ideal system for testing common sized specimen with non-adjustable crosshead design
- Convenient working height and ergonomic controls improve operator productivity and comfort
- Long stroke, high speed actuator is well-suited for tension applications requiring repetitive testing of similar-sized specimens
- Anti-rotation system prevents actuator from rotating during test stroke
- Productivity panel with multiple function keys and displays allows the operator to perform common testing functions and view key test information without returning to the computer
- Powerful, yet user friendly materials testing software provides repeatable and reproducible results for simple to sophisticated testing requirements
- Variable pressure hydraulic power supply provides pressure on demand, reducing heat generation, increasing oil life, and eliminating the need for water cooling
