The multipurpose Flexural Testing Frames are designed for minimum deﬂection at maximum load resulting in very high accuracy. The load frame is a welded steel fabrication carrying the ram ﬁtted to the steel base. All Frames have a single acting up stroking ram with over travel switch protection to stop the machine when maximum ram travel is reached. A load cell is used for load measurements on all frames.
Flexural Frames are designed to accept all accessories required for ﬂexural or compression tests.
Flexural Frames are 100 kN, 200 kN, 300 kN capacity U Type and 300 kN, 400 kN capacity C Type open structure designed to allow easy and practical front loading of the specimen.
The very rigid C type design is ideal either for conventional ﬂexural test or for more sophisticated tests such as deformability and ductility index.
The load frame provides the stability needed for accurate and repeatable test results over the years of operation.
Flexural test assemblies should be ordered separately.
All frames can be connected to Natek compression machine as a second frame or can be used with any Natek power pack as an independent Flexural Machine.
The main characteristics are:
• High stability welded assembly
• High accuracy load measurement with load cells
• Can accept wide range of accessories for mentioned standards
• Can be connected to Natek Compression Machine or Hydraulic Power Pack
