H-series with hydraulic drive

The H-series materials testing machines feature a single central hydraulic drive and are available in 600, 1200, 1600, 2000, 2500, 3000 and 5000 kN (60 - 500 tonnes) versions.

Key advantages and features

Advantages and features

  • Hydraulic materials testing machines have a single central hydraulic drive (differential actuator).
  • The materials testing machines are optionally equipped with an adjustable top crosshead to be able to adapt the test area to customer-specific requirements.
  • The ergonomic operating height facilitates easy feeding of specimens.
  • With the high resolution and channel-synchronized measurement technology, material characteristics are determined with extreme accuracy. Range-switching is not necessary as load signal resolution is available over the full range.
  • Force measurement takes place via a DMS load cell and is calibrated in accordance with ISO 7500-1 in Class 0.5 and Class 1.
  • The wide measurement range also allows low test loads to be determined precisely, with no need to re-equip the testing machine.
  • The testing machine is set on vibration damping rubber mats. A special foundation is not necessary.

More advantages

  • For standard testing with the ZwickRoell testXpert testing software, operator involvement is reduced to the push of a button.
  • Modular design throughout the system allows the entire ZwickRoell accessory range to be used, including a wide variety of extensometers, specimen grips and other test fixtures.
  • Should new testing requirements arise, additional test fixtures are easily installed via a T-slot or screw system.
  • The materials testing machine can be tailored to customer-specific requirements (e.g. test devices, specimen grips, test speed ranges, testing software).
