Product description Lloyd LS series compression and tensile benches
LS series, versatile and accurate in the low force range
By combining the LS material compression and tensile tester with the NexygenPlus software and the grip that fits your sample, test type and the international standard requirements within your field, you get a powerful, high-precision and highly specialized material testing system. A materials testing system suitable for quality control within a wide range of applications and test types on materials such as plastic, rubber, electronics, textiles, wood, packaging, medical devices and cosmetics.
Lloyd Instruments' LS series compression and tensile testing machines are easy-to-use universal testing machines ideal for materials testing up to 5kN (1124 lbf). The machines use high-precision interchangeable YLC series force transducers for tension, compression and cycling through zero force measurements. The compression and tensile benches have an accuracy of ± 0.5% from 1% to 100% of the force transducer.
The LS Series has a large working area and is available in three sizes and capacities: the LS1 (up to 1 kN / 225 lbf), the LS2.5 (up to 2.5 kN / 562 lbf) and the LS5 (5kN / 1124 lbf).
These compression and tensile machines feature an integrated control console with a multi-function keyboard and an easy-to-read LCD display. The LCD screen is backlit to display load and extension information. The control console displays prompts and menus that guide the user through machine operations.
With the interchangeable handles and the wide range of test types in the NexygenPlus software, the LS machines are ideal for product development, production testing and quality control.
The NexygenPlus software works in tandem with Excel and Word and gives you the ability to automatically transfer your test results directly into your own company templates.
A fast version of the LS5 tester is available, which is the LS5HS. With a test and return speed of 2032 mm/min (80 in/min), the LS5HS is ideal for high volume applications and automation solutions where the focus on throughput is essential.
Splinter screens are available to protect the user when testing brittle samples that can fragment. These shields help prevent sample fragments from leaving the test area while performing a test. Slide shields are lowered onto the test area once the sample is mounted. Hinged shields open easily, allowing full access to the test area from the front or rear of the machine. Splinter guards are available for one or two column compression and tensile benches. POGO test frames are unique to AMETEK STC. Mounting the POGO frame under the machine base makes it possible to test very large samples.
