Features Of Torsion Testing Machines

Posted by Admin on August, 08, 2014

The Torsion Testing Machines are used for torsion test on metal, non-metal materials, parts and components. They are essentially used to examine the torsion properties of metal in the mechanical laboratories of construction, aviation, scientific research department, industries and universities, etc. They are most commonly used to test the brittle materials and parts such as the axles, shafts, twist drills subjected to torsional loading during operation. So, let us look at some of the features of the Torsion Testing Machines offered by the Torsion Testing Machine Suppliers:

Features Of Torsion Testing Machines:

  • They provide weighing and loading capabilities in both rotational directions. It allows the machines to determine the ultimate torque of specimen and its behavior in situations of continuous or irregular torque loading in both directions;
  • They comprise of variable speed drive loading systems, indicating system and digital control system in a fixed section of machine. The weighing head featuring a strain gage torque sensor is mounted on a movable section. Due to this, it can be positioned on rails for accommodating the specimen of varying lengths;
  • They are furnished with heavy duty slotted metal bed rails fixed in concrete and stable structure to provide maximum accessibility and rigidity. They are capable of rapid positioning due to the moveable sections mounted on four rollers gliding along the slotted rails. Moreover, the rollers also allow the moveable unit to recompense for any changes in the length of specimen during loading;
  • They feature bi-directional grips to ensure clamping of the specimen without slipping despite the twist direction. Due to the precision machined grips, the loads can be provided in both the direction without grip changing.

Moreover, they feature a sturdy electromechanical loading system comprising a gear reduction system joined directly to a variable speed drive motor. The loading system allows for variable testing speeds in either direction. With the increasing load, the power is delivered to twisting head to apply the increased torque to the specimen. It is done to maintain the already selected twisting rate.
