Teaching Laboratory Torsion Test Machine | Academic Spotlight

Mechanical testing labs give students the opportunity to experience the concepts they are taught in lecture. The 160 series torsion test machines are used in a vertical or horizontal orientation and designed to the parameters of the laboratory experiments assigned to the students. In their course, students use the torsion test machines to apply a torque to aluminum, brass, and steel dumbbell type specimens, measuring the angular deflection of the test sample. These experiments provide hands-on experience with the theories of elastic material behavior and help to reinforce instruction in torsional mechanics. The machine features an adjustable actuator position to allow for a variety of test specimen sizes. TestResources has a broad experience providing test equipment for university teaching and research laboratories. The 100 series machines are popular for instruction laboratories, configurable with a variety of machine controllers and accessories to perform tensile, compression, stress relaxation, creep, and shear test in monotonic or sawtooth cyclic loading.
