LFPlus Universal Materials Testing Machine

1 kN (225 lbf) Universal Materials Testing Machine

The LFPlus universal testing machine is an easy to use solution for force measurement and material testing applications up to 1 kN (225 lbf). The machine uses interchangeable XLC Series load cells. Tension and compression testing with cycling to load and extension limits are standard features. The machine can be equipped with a variety of accessories including: grips, fixtures, compressionframes, thermal cabinets and extensometers.

The LFPlus features an innovative design that maximises working space and simplifies operation and maintenance. The large work area and deep 179 mm (7 in) throat accommodates large specimens and is supplied with a standard universal eye end or optional expanded work table, T-slot table or drip tray. An impressive 0.05-1270 mm/min (0.002-50 in/min) crosshead speed makes it ideal for advanced applications such as creep tests and constant load holding tests. The machine includes standard pass/fail capabilities and statistics.

The LFPlus machine displays load and extension information on a high visibility LCD console with integral membrane keypad. The machine’s intuitive console displays prompts and menus that guide the user through setup, operation and maintenance functions. Passwords may be used to limit functions to authorised users. Information can be displayed in a choice of languages as standard.

Machine performance can be optimised using our NEXYGENPlus material test and data analysis software. This Windows® based software with its built in applications library, is easy-to-use and allows detailed test data to be stored and displayed in graphical and tabular formats. The software allows data to be manipulated to produce detailed analytical reports, plus the ability to integrate with popular Windows® software packages such as Excel, and Outlook®. Other features include powerful video and still picture capture, advanced security and audit trails to safeguard data integrity, SPC and clear pass/fail indication.
