Triaxial Testing Machine

Testing machine for triaxial loading

This triaxial low-load testing machine with maximum nominal load of 2 N was developed for measurement of the shear force of biological (orthotropic) tissues.

Triaxial shear testing machine

Key Advantages and Features

Tensile, compression, and shear testing machine

  • Low-load testing machine for measuring the shear force of biological (orthotropic) tissues
  • Upper platform (in the Z direction) vertically displaceable, achieved by precision, low-loading testing machine for compression loading
  • Lower platform (X and Y directions) horizontally dipslaceable, achieved by precision linear module for shear loading
  • Simultaneous force measurement in three orthogonal directions (X, Y, and Z direction) via 3-axis load cell for extremely small forces and for low crosstalk of the force axes.
  • Testing software via graphical sequence editor for graphically supported generation of individual test sequences with multiple axes
  • Temperature conditioning vessel: Glass basin for measuring specimens in physiological and temperature conditioned liquid
