Static Hydraulic Systems

Industrial Series DX Models

Designed for high-capacity tension, compression, bend/flex, and shear testing, the DX Models feature a dual test space and single footprint. Understanding the critical importance of operator safety these frames incorporate high-quality materials, components, and craftsmanship and are ideal for testing metals, wire rod, fasteners, concrete, and wood.

Features and Benefits

  • Single footprint saves valuable floor space - load frame, hydraulic power supply, and controller combined in a single package
  • Fully open-front grip design improves operator safety and throughput, and allows a limited number of jaw faces to cover a large range of specimen sizes 
  • Two test space design makes changing between tension and compression testing safer and more efficient - no need to remove heavy fixtures 
  • Convenient working height and ergonomic controls increase operator productivity and comfort
  • Productivity panel with multiple function keys and displays improves ergonomics, and allows the operator to perform common testing functions and view key test information without returning to the computer
  • Powerful, yet user-friendly materals 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
  • Optional closed head grip design available

Range of Models

  • 300DX - 300 kN (67,500 lbf)

  • Co-axially mounted encoder accurately measures actuator travel at the center of the load string
  • Convenient working height and ergonomic controls improve operator productivity and comfort
  • Long stroke, high-speed actuator accommodates both tension and compression testing applications
  • Productivity panel with multiple function keys and displays improves ergonomics, and 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
