560 Series Torsion Test Machine

560 Series Electrodynamic Torsion Test Systems are capable of static, dynamic and fatigue testing applications with models available up to 285 Nm (2500 lbf∙in). Horizontal and vertical benchtop configurations are available. The product line consists of several controllers, actuators, frames and fixtures. Our high resolution 24 bit controller and test software feature high speed PID control integrated with a T type electromagnetic motor selected for torque and speed requirements.

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. The system requires 110V (220V optional) electrical power.
