Universal Strength Machine VUD

Universal Strength Machine VUD

The Universal Strength Machine VUD is a versatile equipment that allows users to test a variety of strengths including compression, tensile, transverse, twin transverse, and high dry strength. This highly precise and accurate machine is IoT enabled, allowing for remote monitoring and data collection. It is suitable for a wide variety of applications. It is an ideal solution for any laboratory requiring strength testing capabilities.

  • 1.1 General information

    Universal Strength machine is equipped with a loading mechanism and sensing mechanism which are controlled by Microcontroller or PLC and observed on LCD display. By default it can measure Compression strength of an AFS (Dia. 2”X2”) or Metric (Dia. 50mmX50mm) Specimen.

    With Help of attachment it can also measure

    • High Compression Strength (Refer 4.2.1)
    • Shear Strength (Refer 4.2.2)
    • Splitting Strength (Refer 4.2.3).
    • Tensile Strength (Refer 4.2.4).
    • Transverse Strength (Refer 4.2.5).
    • Twin Transverse Strength (Refer 4.2.6).
    • Deformation (Refer 4.2.7).
  • 1.2 General Usage

    Keep the specimen in between compression pads or accessory & press of start button, within few seconds the equipment shows the reading.
