560 Series Torsion Test Machines


560 seriesThe 560 series electrodynamic torsion test machines are designed for static, dynamic and fatigue testing applications up to 200 Nm (1770 in-lb). Available in horizontal and vertical configurations. The 560 Series is capable of more sophisticated dynamic fatigue applications for users with fatigue-life testing requirements. Each torsion testing machine configuration includes a test controller, easy setup test software, test table with rotary actuator or motor, power source, torsion test fixtures, and torque and angular position sensors.

The system is capable of static constant angular speed or torsion load rate tests with a cyclic mode for repetitive sinusoidal or triangular waveforms that can cycle between angular positions or torque load limits. Tests last millions of cycles, or until sample failure.
