The SM-1000 laboratory introduces the student to Materials Testing and Properties range including the high-quality, robust construction of the equipment which makes it ideal for the laboratory environment. It provides long-term performance and reliability to give dependable, accurate results every time from basic to advanced level.
The laboratory consists of a set of trainers and equipment listed on the right of this page (any PCs required are not included - provided locally by reseller).
|-SM 1000||Universal testing machine |
SM 1000 Universal testing machine -1000 KN:
- Students can use the Universal Testing Machine to test many materials, engineering parts and structures. These allow students to do Brinell hardness tests on materials and tests on coil springs, leaf springs and beams.
- Universal Testing Machine fits onto any suitable strong desk or bench top with a steel frame with four columns that supports a hydraulic ram. The ram pushes up a loading platform. The area above the loading platform is for compression tests on a wide range of materials such as wood, brick and mortar. The space below the platform is for tensile tests. A high-impact strength clear-plastic guard protects the user during tests.
|-PHT 3500||Digital Hardness Tester|
PHT 3500 Digital Hardness Tester:
- The PHT 3500 covers all areas, theoretical and practical concerning the operation of a Hardness Tester. It is a portable tester for Brinell, Rockwell A, Rockwell B, Rockwell C, Vickers and Shore scale testing.
|-PT 1013 L||Electric Furnace|
PT 1013 L Electric Furnace:
- The scope of this equipment within the Material Science Laboratory is dual:
To heat specimens to various temperature ranges in order to establish the Stress and Strain tests of such heated specimens on any 100KN Universal Testing Machine. The PT1013L works with tensile specimens used in SM1000 100 KN. To allow teachers to create molds of specimens from various metals : Zinc, Copper, Aluminum or Ferrus, and create tensile for performing stress and strain tests showing the performance of such material
