AMETEK Lloyd Instruments has introduced a series of universal test machines that uses analysis software to handle a range of present and future applications.

The LD Series of twin column materials testers includes five models with capacities ranging from 5 to 100kN. All are designed for routine, automated, and complex multi-stage quality control testing.

All LD Series testing machines feature a working area of 452 mm (17.8 in), crosshead travel up to 1070 mm (42 in) and is extendable to 1669 mm (65.7 in). They can be mounted above a floor standing compression cage for large sample or complete assembly testing.

The LD Series offers a modern AC drive and preloaded ball screws for speed and displacement accuracy. A high stiffness frame helps prevent frame deflection and crosshead movement, while the use of pancake load cells is designed to improve accuracy at the cross axis

All LD Series machines are supplied with NEXYGENPlus analysis software that includes a library of pre-programmed test setups to accommodate multiple applications without purchasing additional software. Built-in test wizards guide users through advanced customized test setups. Test results can be automatically exported directly into Microsoft Word or Excel using user-defined corporate templates or pre-defined templates for analysis and reporting.
