Instron 5982 Universal Testing Machine at 100 kN and a DIC
Instron 5982 Universal Testing Machine
Instron 5982 Testing System is an universal, static testing systems that perform tensile and compression testing; and also perform shear, flexure, peel, tear, cyclic, and bend tests. It is engineered for precision, built for durability, and offer the flexibility for changing requirements. It is designed with standard and optional features that increase testing efficiency and improve the testing experience for the operator. Instron 5980 system is robust, heavy-duty frames commonly used for testing high-strength metals and alloys, advanced composites, aerospace and automotive structures, bolts, fasteners, and plate steels. Frames are available in load capacities of 100 kN; and several variations are available to accommodate requirements for both extended travel and extra wide test space. A key advantage of Instron 5982 is the stiffness of the frame that is especially important when testing high-strength materials such as aerospace composites, metal alloys, and crystalline polymers. Pre-loaded bearings and precision ball screws, a thick crosshead and base beam, and low-stretch drive belts contribute to better performance by producing more accurate modulus and strain values, and minimizing the energy stored during a test.
