Planar Biaxial Test Machines

Planar biaxial test machines, also known as multichannel test machines, have a unique ability to generate in-plane stresses that replicate multiaxial real-world stress states. Each planar biaxial system includes four actuators mounted opposite of each other on two axes with each actuator independently controlled by a four-channel servo controller that ensures independent and synchronized control of motion, strain or load. Each actuator is controlled to work with the other three actuators to replicate desired biaxial stresses.

These systems are ideal for low force biaxial test applications, which is used in mechanical, biomedical, and materials engineering research. You can use this all electric dynamic modular test machine for applications such as hard foam, glass fabrics, textiles, sheet metal fastening, silicone elastomer, orthotropic plates and biological samples such as fibrous tissues, arterial walls, back disc tissues, skin, and heart valves. They are ideal for testing the mechanical properties of directionally oriented microstructures.

Our planar biaxial test systems can be configured with contacting extensometers or a suitably configured DIC (digital image correlation) video camera, which makes strain measurement control possible.

Get started configuring your test system by choosing a frame based on the maximum force capacity required for your test application:
