LS1 Advanced Materials Testing System

The LS1 is a 1 kN / 225 lbf high precision materials testing machine that combined with our extensive range of grips, fixtures, extensometers and software creates a powerful materials testing system. The system is equally suited to quality control,  educational and R&D environments within a wide range of applications and test types, including medical devices, plastics, packaging, textiles, rubber and electronics to name a few.

  • Meets or exceeds national and international material test standards
  • Intuitive operation and low maintenance
  • Small tabletop footprint with a large and flexible work space
  • Plug ‘n’ Play, automatic identification of YLC series load cells
  • NEXYGENPlus provides seamless data transfer to Microsoft Office®, LIMS and other data management systems

» High Mechanical Stiffness
   Modern linear guide technology, pre-loaded
   ball screws and advanced software
   compensation ensures high displacement
» Wide Speed Range
   High precision and improved productivity
   0.01-2032 mm/min (0.0004-80 in/min)
» Exceptional Load Accuracy
   Load accuracy of +/- 0.5% down to 1%
   of load cell value provides a high dynamic
   range, thereby reducing the number of
   load cells required to cover the full force
» Large Work Area
  180 mm throat depth for larger specimens
  and wide range of work tables for flexibility
» Flexible Controls
   Scalable from stand alone operation using
   a control console or utilising our highly
   acclaimed NEXYGENPlus software
» Control Interface
   PC interface is via USB allowing standard
   laptops to be used with no special PC
   interface cards required
» Advanced Test Setup
   with NEXYGENPlus
   The Windows®7 compatible NEXYGENPlus
   software features an improved and
   intuitive User Configurable Test
   functionality complementing the
   comprehensive test standards library
