Tension/compression test-stand based on MTS hydraulic actuator 5kN


The stand was designed to conduct a variety of tests on materials or components of devices under harmonic/monotonic tension/compression loadings. The specimens are to be fixed in the horizontal position between the grips. The excitation is provided via 5 kN hydraulic actuator provided by MTS Systems.

Technical data:
  • Displacement amplitude +/- 50 mm
  • Maximum radius of the specimen 200 mm
  • Maximum frequency of the excitation 100 Hz
  • Resonance frequency of the support table 150 Hz
Data acquisition:
  • MTS extensometer 634.25F-24
  • MTS LVDT displacement sensor integrated with the actuator MTS load cell 5 kN
  • FlexTest GT, MTS dedicated control and data acquisition unit
