Servohydraulic Testing Machine HC Compact from 10 to 100 kN

Testing Machine with Integrated Hydraulic Power Pack

Technical Overview of HC Compact

The HC Compact is a complete testing system with an extremely small space requirement. The low noise power pack forms the base support for the test frame, which reduces the machine’s footprint to a minimum. Combined with special sound insulation for the hydraulic power pack, the HC Compact is ideal for operation in a laboratory.

The HC Compact testing machine is available in two sizes. 

  • The HC Compact10/25 kN is designed for fatigue tests on smaller components, down to and including biomedical tests. The machine is equipped with a T-slotted platform and the testing actuator is therefore located in the upper crosshead.
  • The HC Compact 50/100 kN is adapted for a full range of accessories for testing on composites, with which both static and dynamic tests can be performed. Due to the high stiffness of the load frame and easy connection of a high-temperature furnace, this machine is also optimally suited for LCF tests.

A temperature chamber can be installed on both models without a lot of effort. For applications with particularly high requirements on the load string alignment (e.g. LCF tests) the machines can be equipped with an optional alignment fixture.

Advantages & Features

10/25 kN

  • Space-saving testing system with integrated hydraulic power-pack.
  • Extra-quiet low-noise power pack.
  • The entire test, together with set-up and control of automatic extensometers and specimen grips, is run via the display-equipped remote control unit.
  • 2­column frame for dynamic tests up to 25kN with testing actuator installed in upper crosshead.
  • Suitable for 10 kN and 25 kN axial actuators.
  • Hydrostatic-bearing, sealless actuator for virtually frictionless and maintenance-free operation.
  • Hard-chromed T-slotted platform and columns for tests in corrosive media.
  • Wide range of accessories: temperature chamber, compression platens, specimen grips, flexure test kit etc.
  • Optional hydraulic adjustment for easy positioning of upper crosshead.
  • Safety housing for compliance with CE Machinery Directive, depending on application.
