VERTICAL SINGLE COLUMNFATIGUE MACHINE

CYCLIC FATIGUE TESTING MACHINE with servo-pneumatic actuator

Las máquinas para ensayos de fatiga

LiTeM series VSC-A (Vertical Single Column – Air) systems are modular table top fatigue testing machines complete with external frames and guards, equipped with a pneumatic actuator with a load range of 0 to 2 kN and stroke up to 500 mm.

The VSC-A series is made of modular aluminium profile members and can be ordered in its standard versions or taylor-made to meet client’s needs.
VSC-A machines are the solution for manufacturers and research centers who want to optimize their design and development processes.

The load is applied by special low wear pneumatic actuators with contactless displacement sensors integrated into the rod. This ensures that the sensor itself is completely unaffected by wear.

Each machine has a RTC9001-S (standard) controller, complete with RTC PN (Pneumatic) – STD (Standard) software with Start Stop test and acquisition and display functions for the data coming from the load and displacement sensor or an auxiliary sensor.

NOTES

* The values are expressed in thrust with 6 bar pressure

** The dynamic force decreases as the deflection and cycle frequency increase

*** It’s recommended to use 50mm stroke for fatigue testing and 100mm for stiffness testing to optimize the air consumption

**** Accuracy expressed in mm per 100 mm stroke of the sensor
