UTC-5600             200 kN Capacity Flexural Testing Frame U Type

UTC-5700             300 kN Capacity Flexural Testing Frame C Type


  • The versatile UTEST Flexural Testing Frames are designed for minimum deflection at maximum load resulting in very high accuracy.
  • The load frame is a welded steel fabrication carrying the ram fitted to the upper crosshead. All frames have a single acting down stroking ram with over travel switch protection to shut the machine down when maximum ram travel is reached.
  • The return of the ram is done by dead weight or spring to get maximum accuracy on the load measurement.
  • A load cell is used for load measurements on all frames.
  • Each model is designed to accept all accessories required for flexural, trans­verse or compression tests.
  • UTEST Flexural Frames UTC-5600 model is 200 kN capacity U type and UTC-5700 is a 300kN C type open structure designed to allow easy and practical front loading of the specimen.
  • The very rigid C type design is ideal either for conventional flexural test or for more sophisticated tests such as deformability and ductility index.
  • The load frame provides the stability needed for accurate and repeatable test re­sults over the years of operation.
  • All frames can be connected to any UTEST compression machine as a second frame or can be used with any UTEST power pack as an independent Flexural Machine.
  • Flexural test assemblies should be ordered separately.

The main characteristics are:

  • 2 different capacity high stability welded assembly
  • Safety limit switch for 100- or 120-mm piston stroke
  • High accuracy load measurement with strain gauge load cells
  • Can accept wide range of accessories for mentioned standards
  • Can be connected to any UTEST compression machine or UTEST power pack
