Fundamentals of statics (TM110)

Fundamentals of statics (TM110)

versatile experimental unit demonstrating planar mechanical force systems



  • The experimental unit demonstrates fundamental principles of statics such as the equilibrium of forces and moments, resolution of forces, the law of levers, and more.
  • The base element is an upright panel.
  • Feet enable the panel to stand on a laboratory bench.
  • All parts required for the experiment can be quickly attached to the rails around the edges.
  • The imprinted line grid and grid-marked lever rods permit precise assembly.
  • The lengths marked on the grid make it easy to define angles.
  • A wide range of mountings, such as cables, rods, pulleys, torque disks, pivot bearings and the like, can be easily fixed in place and combined.
  • Ball bearings integrated into the panel permit low-friction torque experiments.
  • The versatility of the experimental unit helps students to explore their creativity in developing their own experiments.
  • Large-format force gauges are particularly well suited to demonstration purposes.
  • The adjustable transparent dial enables input loads, such as dead-weights, to be taken into account.
  • As a special teaching aid, it is possible to write directly on the panel with erasable markers.
  • Markings, sketches and comments can be added to supplement the experiments.
  • All parts are clearly laid out and well protected on a storage system.
  • The storage systems are stackable, providing for space-saving storage.
  • Three supplementary sets are available to extend the scope of experimentation, providing additional experiments relating to the inclined plane, friction, pulley blocks and gear wheels.
