The dynamometer consists of four three-component force sensors fitted under high preload between a baseplate and a top plate. Each sensor contains three pairs of quartz plates, one sensitive to pressure in the z direction and the other two responding to shear in the x and y directions respectively. The force components are measured practically without displacement. The outputs of the four built-in force sensors are connected inside the dynamometer in a way to allow multicomponent measurements of forces and moments to be performed.
Table Top Load Frames are compact and affordable testing systems with both static and dynamic loading capabilities. They can be utilized for a variety of tests, including tension, compression, bend, and fatigue studies. Low friction hydrostatic bearings allow for accuracy at low speeds.
