Ametek Test & Calibration Instruments in Largo, Fla., has expanded its Lloyd Instrument line of advanced materials testing systems, by introducing the LS5 and LS2.5.
They can be used for tensile and compression testing, friction, tearing, peeling, insertion/extraction, creep/relaxation and many other measurements.
Both single-column machines feature the latest linear guide technology, pre-loaded ball screws and advanced software compensation systems.
They are available with an extensive range of grips, fixtures, extensometers and software options. They feature a large work area for larger specimens and a wide range of work tables.
Applications for the LS5 include plastics, packaging, medical devices, automotive parts, electronics, textiles, rubber and pharmaceuticals. The LS2.5 is suited for plastic, rubber and other high-elongation materials because of its wide crosshead travel.
