LR5KPlus Universal Materials Testing Machine

The LR5KPlus advanced materials testing machine incorporates an extensive range of features making it ideal for performing complex as well as routine testing applications up to 5 kN (1124 lbf). The standard LR5KPlus features a twin column design with a maximum crosshead travel of 975 mm (38.4in). Extended machine column options (LR5KPlus-Emodels) for testing high elongation materials are also available.

This bench mounted machine is micro processor controlled and incorporates world proven 32 bit technology for highly accurate load measurement and rapid data acquisition. The LR5KPlus features an integral user interface consisting of a side mounted control console with large, positive action membrane keys, allowing complex tests to be performed at the touch of a button. A back lit 4 line LCD display shows the test and set up information in a wide choice of user selectable languages and units.

The stand alone system is capable of storing up to 600 test results from a choice of ten programmable test set ups. Test parameters are entered using the keypad in a sequential menu driven format.

For additional flexibility, the LR5KPlus can also be connected to a personal computer with optional Lloyd Instruments NEXYGENPlus material test and control software. NEXYGEN software provides almost unlimited testing and results processing capability in a familiar Windows® environment.

The high stiffness frame incorporates a crosshead guidance system to prevent side loading of the sample under test. The crosshead is driven by twin lead screws and a high precision motor to achieve a wide range of speeds throughout the full load range.

A series of highly accurate, interchangeable load cells is available for tension, compression and cycling through zero force measurements. Our extensive range of grips and fixtures support virtually any type of test. The system is ideal for use in production, quality control, educational and research environments.
