LTM elektrodynaaminen koestuskone

Electrodynamic testing machines are used to determine material and component fatigue-strength in the fatigue life and fatigue limit ranges.

The LTM’s wide speed range allows it to be used for both dynamic fatigue tests and quasi-static tests. The oil-free drive, combined with ease of installation, makes the electrodynamic testing machine ideal for use in biomedical engineering and electronics, as well as for research and training. Typical examples include tests on hip-joint and knee replacements and dental implants. Other applications are tests on standard plastics and composites specimens, as well as aluminum and plastics CT and SEB specimens. The electrodynamic testing machine is available with loads of 1, 2, 3, 5 and 10 kN.

The Electromagnetic Drive 

The LTM linear motor testing machine is based on a patented electrodynamic drive system from ZwickRoell.

The drive was specifically designed for the relevant speed range

  • High positioning accuracy
  • Optimal control quality
  • High frequency rate 
  • Reliable test results

Key Advantages and Features

Description

The LTM is an electrodynamic testing machine with a drive based on linear motor technology. ZwickRoell's newly developed patented drive concept enables the LTM to be used for both dynamic and static materials and components testing. The low moved mass of the drive provides ideal conditions for performing fatigue tests with tensile, compression, and flexural loading.

The LTM is used in industries where oil-free and low-noise drive technology are preferred, for example, in the medical industry for standard-compliant testing of hip joint, knee, or dental implants.

Other typical application examples include fatigue and durability tests on standard specimens made of plastics, fiber composites and metals.

For components testing, the LTM is equipped with a T-slotted plate that can be adapted to components, and test fixtures quickly and easily as standard.

Intuitive operation via testXpert R and testXpert III software makes the LTM a genuine all-rounder for industrial purposes as well as for research and teaching at university level.

Advantages

  • High dynamic performance due to low moving mass
  • Wide speed-range enables dynamic as well as quasi-static tests
  • Low operating and maintenance costs with oil-free drive technology without additional supply feeds
  • Motor-driven traverse adjustment for convenient operation
  • safe setup mode as per EN 60204-1 via speed reduction to 10 mm/s
  • Simple manual crosshead locking via hand lever with electrical monitoring and LED status indicator
  • Long piston-stroke (60 mm) enables wide variety of applications
  • Operator-friendly testXpert R testing software with preset controller settings and availability of free controller definition for dynamic testing requirements
  • Intelligent testing software testXpert III featuring intuitive operation for static testing requirements.
  • Flexible use of specimen grips and fixtures over the entire dynamic product range
  • The electromagnetic drive was designed specifically for the speed range relevant to testing technology and features exceptionally quiet operation, optimum control quality and extremely high positioning accuracy
  • The travel measuring system is coaxial to the test axis and mounted near the specimen in the piston rod, enabling high positioning repeatability and precise piston travel measurement

Kokeesta riippuen jopa 100 Hz testaustaajuudet varmistavat lyhyet testausajat ja näytteiden nopean käsittelyn.

Lineaarimoottori ei tarvitse ylimääräisiä syötteitä, kuten paineilmaa, jäähdytysainetta tai öljyä. Tämä pienentää huolto- ja asennuskustannuksia.

Dynaamiseen testaukseen käytetään ohjelmaa testXpert® R ja staattiseen testaukseen ohjelmaa testXpert® II. Ohjelmisto on intuitiivinen ja mukautuu hyvin erilaisiin testaustarpeisiin.

Kuluvien osien puuttuminen varmistaa huoltovapaan käytön.

The Displacement Measuring System

During the design stage, particular attention was paid to the positioning of the displacement measuring system—close to the specimen and in the center of the test axis.

The displacement measurement is coaxial and mounted near the specimen in the piston rod.

  • By avoiding displacement measurement errors, exceptional positioning and repetition accuracy can be achieved.
