The TCM-6700 and TCM-6710, very rigid two column frames have been designed for compression and/or flexure testing of mortar prisms and cubes specimens. Load cells are used on both frames to provide high accuracy in load measuring.
Both frames are fitted with round platens with 165 mm diameter and these should be used together with suitable flexure and compression devices. Distance pieces and transparent front-rear safety doors (should be factory installed) should be ordered separately.
Manufactured from high quality steel are hardened (more than HRC 53), smoothed and finished. The roughness value for the surface texture of machine and auxiliary platens is 3.2 μm.
Loading Cylinder Assembly and Limit Switch
All frames have a single acting up stroking ram. The diameter of piston changes with regard to the capacity. The maximum ram stroke is 50 mm, a limit switch is fitted to prevent over travel of the ram which cuts the power to the pump.There is a low friction coaxial PTFE seal between the cylinder and the piston fitted to the cylinder
Distance Pieces for Frame
Due to the modular design of the frames any sample with suitable size, load and pace rate can be test on both chambers by decreasing the distance between platens.
