Electromechanical Creep Testing Machine Kappa SS

Kappa 50 SS

Application Load Frame and drive system

The Electromechanical Creep Testing Machine KAPPA • Stand-alone floor machine
SS offers a wide range of applications. • High stiffness, precision and durability by
4-columns-design and central single screw
• Creep tests • Precise axial alignment according to
• Creep rupture tests ASTM E 292 by precision crosshead guiding and
• Stress rupture tests special seating load train
• Relaxation tests • Requires no special base or foundation
• Creep crack growth tests • Includes vibration isolation with Sylomer dampers
• Definition of individual stepless sequences of load under the load frame
and temperature • High resolution crosshead resolver and high
• ‘Advanced creep‘ - Tests resolution load channel permit excellent control
- Creep fatigue tests: tension - tension only characteristics
- Creep strain modelling (e.g. to give creep • Precise speed of +/-0.1% of set speed in range of
strength at various levels of strain) 1µm/h to 100 mm/min (no load or constant load)
- Creep ductility measurement (average over 5 sec or 10 mm)
- Creep property deterioration due to ser- • High durability by use of brushless AC-motors
vice exposure • Load-, stress- and strain-control
- Creep data from component tests • Optional integration of high temperature controller
