      MICROTEST EFH Series from 20kN to 2000kN capacity:

Universal hydraulic servo-controlled machine 20kN to 2000kN capacity,
computer controlled, to perform static tensile tests on metallic materials.

It basically consists of:

        - Strong loading frame with a reading strain gage load cell built into
       the piston

       - Computer Controlled System SCM3000 and software, for the data
       acquisition, control and processing.

       - Hydraulic Power Pack: adapted to the users specific needs: range of
       force, speed, stroke, type of control, etc. The whole is built in a

The frame is designed to carry out tensile tests using the grips placed in the
clamping heads. In the upper part, between the head and traverse,

It is possible to carry out flexion, compression, bending, hardness, dishing
tests, according to the International Standards by using the suitable (see
accessories) devices.

 The hydraulic servo-controlled unit regulates the load or the displacement
rate by the Computer.

An emergency device stops the machine in any moment as per the
International Safety Standards.

 A control panel situated on the frame governs the movement of the lower
tensile head (typical excursion 0÷300mm with electric end of stroke switches)
for an easier positioning of the specimen according to its length.

The machine is supplied complete with loading frame, control system
SCM3000 and hydraulic power unit.

The extensometers, the grips and the printer are options and should be
ordered separately according to the needs of the user.

                  Universal Testing Machines Servo-hydraulic EFH Series 20kN to 2000kN

 The EFH testing machines include one or more force transducers (load
 cell) that provide better precision measurement of the applied force
 than pressure transducers or gages used in traditional hydraulic systems.
 In this way the force measurement is not affected by oil temperature,
 local disturbances caused by the oil flow, friction in the load cylinder,

 The test speed and the position can be digitally controlled and
 measured by means of a linear displacement transducer in the actuator
 axis obtaining a high precision controlled movement.


The EFH machines flexibility is further extended by a wide array of accessories
instrumentation, grips and fixtures to perform all kind of test with the higher efficiency.
These accessories include LVDT extensometers, compress-meters, strain gage
extensometers, high temperature extensometers, as well as grips, holders, jigs or platens
for holding the test specimens. They can also be delivered with special testing
equipment as high temperature furnaces, climatic chambers, etc.

MICROTEST can provide a great variety of grips and accessories, depending on the
material or test.
Among others:

                          Compression platens.

                  Universal Testing Machines Servo-hydraulic EFH Series 20kN to 2000kN

                          Pneumatic, hydraulic or manual grips for tensile tests with
                           different jaws.
                          Bend fixtures.
                          Other test fixtures (shear, friction, tear, peel, etc)
                          Extensometers, furnaces, climatic chambers, etc.

This flexibility makes EFH machines very suitable in most of the standardized axial tests,
where the force to be applied is under the load capacity of the machine, in tensile test
or compression tests in the same single test zone.

Among others, with the suitable fixture, the following tests can be done:

        Tensile tests on metal samples: standard shapes, ribbons, springs, screws,
         fasteners, washers, wires, cables, elastomeric samples, etc
        Corrosion under tension tests.
        Tensile tests on standardized steel samples.
        Tensile, shear or bending tests on aluminum samples or profiles.
        Compression tests on concrete, mortars, ceramics, foams, wood, rocks, etc.
        Friction tests, peel tests, shear, etc.
        Bending tests on metals, mortars, concrete, ceramics, wood, paving tiles, etc.
