Special & Important Features:
Front Open Crossheads : This is an important feature which facilitates insertion of tensile specimen from the front. This is extremely useful especially for heavy specimens and bigger capacity machines. In this type of machine the jaws and the inserts also can be easily removed by just pulling from the front. When the jaws and inserts are heavy, it is very difficult to remove them from the machine from upper or lower side. Hence this is an important feature from the point of view of easy operation.
Hydraulic grips : Normally for standard Universal Testing Machines the jaw opening and specimen clamping is effected manually. But this becomes operator specific in this case. Hence it is a better choice to go for hydraulic operation of jaws (closing and opening). In this hydraulic griping method, separate double acting hydraulic cyclinder operate the jaws and the cyclinder operation is just by pressing a push button. So the operator has to operate the jaws and the cylinder operation is just by pressing a push button. So the operator has to operate only push buttons, which are conveniently located on the machine, to operate the jaws. A power pack with oil tank, pump, motor oil filler cum breather, oil level indicator, filter, relief valve is provided along with an electric motor to drive the hydraulic pump.
