Fracture Diagnostics International's Rising Step Load™ Incremental Step Load Test Laboratory
Model FDI 20000-T Rising Step LoadTM Test System
Quality Monitoring Using a Tensile Force
This unit is designed for testing standard tensile coupons or threaded parts in tension using either the RSL™ ISL method or standard tensile test parameters. It uses constant displacement as the loading method, controlled by a digitally actuated stepper motor. This provides abilities for a broad variety of testing parameters including sustained load, constant stress rate as in ASTM E8 and all varieties of Step Load Profiles including those required by ASTM F519 and F1624. The FDI 20000-T model, provides a tensile force capability of 20,000 pounds, which allows testing of many standard test specimens as well as actual parts of significant size.
The included software uses a graphical interface combining a unique control of all testing parameters and simplicity of operation. Data generated can be filed into and analyzed by many standard data base programs.
The tensile frame is designed as a desktop unit and can be provided with gripping adapters to accommodate a broad variety of test specimen configurations, needs only normal wall outlet for power and requires no cooling or waste disposal.
This unit comes with a motor controller, a calibrated load cell, operating software, a computer capable of running multiple FDI Test Systems at the same time, and a 2-day installation and demonstration. An optional operating instruction course is also available.
