LTCM500 Series Motorized Test Stand (550 lbf / 2.5 kN)

The CHATILLON® LTCM500 Series is an economical, motorized tester optimized for product floor operation. When combined with a Chatillon DF Series digital force gauge, it provides users with an easy-to-use testing system for tensile, compression, peel and flexural testing applications. 

The LTCM500 Series features a large working area and 5-inch (130mm) throat ideal for large sample sizes. The base features T-slot table for fitting fixtures and specialized testing jigs. Crosshead travel is controlled from a simple console or using an optional footswitch controller. Crosshead travel extends to 29 inches (750mm). Speed may be set from 0.2 to 20 in/min or 5 to 500 mm/min. A digital display indicates the travel speed during a test. The return speed may be configured to automatically return at maximum speed. Mechanical deflection limits, located on the column face can be used to set travel limit setpoints. The crosshead will stop when either the upper or lower deflection limit is contacted. An acrylic splinter shield is optionally available. The shield helps contain samples that may fracture during a test. 

The LTCM500 Series can also use the digital output of a Chatillon DF Series digital force gauge to stop crosshead travel when a load limit is achieved. 

The LTCM500 Series is supplied with a hook and compression plate and certificate of conformance.
