21 Dec AURA (100-600 KN) – UNIVERSAL TESTING MACHINE FOR TENSILE, BENDING AND SHEARING TESTS
For high load tests with pneumatic or hydraulic automatic grippers; also suitable for use in conjunction with bending test equipment.
AURA TENSILE is a versatile machine which based on the individual testing needs of the customer can have up to 3 loading cells, always equipped with their own sets of grippers, for tensile tests to breaking point.
Operation: Automatic, Semi-automatic, Manual.
The AURA TENSILE range is really Universal, and is designed for operation in compliance with the main world standards on tests methods based on the specific applications.
Standards of reference and applications:
Metal sheet tensile tests: ASTM E517, ASTM E345, ASTM E446, DIN 50154
Pipe tensile tests: ISO 3183, ISO 6892-1, ASTM A370
Metal tensile tests with climate chamber: ASTM E21, ISO 6892-2, ISO 6892-3, GOST 9651
Metal sample bending: ISO 7438, ISO 5173, ASTM E190, ASTM E290
Welded metal tensile tests: ISO 4136, ISO 5178, ISO 5173
Tensile tests on cast and forged products: ISO 3266, EN 818-X, EN 1677-X
Alloy sample tensile tests: ASTM B348, ASTM B557
Hot rolled steel tensile tests: ISO 6892-1
The EASYQS software is used with the AURA TENSILE range:
Our system is based on several cards (for axis control + cell readers) with Canbus connection, for displacements to position or force, with 1000 Hz feedback speed. The reading of the loading cell therefore takes place 1000 times per seconds, with a minimum resolution of 32,700 divisions (which can be increased by slowing down cell reading).
Operation and numeric control with HDD touch screen computer.
The two-column self-supporting structure with ball screws and the electronics allow sinusoidal profile stress cycles that preserve the integrity of the machine and allow excellent performance, in spite of the ball screw driven movement. DC motor, encoder (or optical scale).
The program has been fully developed by Easydur for Windows 10 platform operation with internal management of archives, statistics and certificates in Excel format, therefore fully modular and customisable by the customer. The capacities of the optional loading cells can be combined based on individual needs (100 N to 1,000KN). For higher loads up to 3,000 KN we recommend the installation of only one loading cell. The cells are selected using the software and are protected from overload even when not in use. The release of the axis is automatic in case of out of scale value or unforeseen impact. Built-in cell sagging compensation. Adjustable testing speed.
Simple use: The test can be completed simply using the buttons of the front panel, without need to access the previously set programs.
The AURA TENSILE range was designed to allow our customers to operate in full compliance with the INDUSTRY 4.0 philosophy, thanks to the possibility of interfacing the machine with the company management software of the customer.
