LS100Plus Universal Materials Testing Machine

The LS100Plus advanced materials testing machine incorporates an extensive range of features making it ideal for performing complex as  well as routine testing applications up to 100 kN (22481 lbf) The standard LS100Plus features a twin column design with a maximum crosshead travel of 824 mm (32.4 in). Extended machine column options (LS100Plus-E models) for testing high elongation materials are also available.

This bench mounted machine is microprocessor controlled and incorporates world proven 32 bit technology for highly accurate load  measurement and rapid data acquisition. The LS100Plus 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 LS100Plus can also be connected to a personal computer with optional Lloyd Instruments NEXYGENPlus material test and control software. NEXYGENPlus 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 servo motor and DC servo system to achieve a wide range of speeds.

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.
