100 kN Universal Testing Machine (UTM-100) This versatile machine is based on a 100 kN capacity hydraulically-driven load-frame and was designed to meet the needs of laboratories wishing to carry out a range of tests on either bound or unbound pavement construction materials.
For a higher resolution picture showing the 100 kN load-frame with hydraulic actuator, mounted in a -15 to +100ºC temperature cabinet, click on photo.
An integrated control and data acquisition system (CDAS) provides accurate force ordisplacement waveform generation and control and enables automatic sequencing of test procedures.
Windows-based PC software provides a user-friendly interface with the system.
A temperature cabinet designed specifically for the UTM-100 provides adequate space for the load frame, a wide range jigs and fixtures for various specimen dimensions, and room to spare for specimen conditioning. To minimise the lab floor-space required heating and cooling is built into the base of the cabinet. Facilities are also provided tointroduce liquid nitrogen, where lower temperature operation is required.
