25kN Servohydraulic Fatigue Series

Ideal for fatigue and quasi-static testing of biomedical, advanced materials, and manufactured components, the 8872 and 8874 feature a precision aligned twin-column frame with crosshead mounted actuator and T-slot table, for easy mounting of test pieces such as orthopaedic specimens, automotive components, and manufacturing assemblies.

The 8874 offers a combined linear-torsion dynamic actuator with an additional ±100 Nm (880 in-lb) torque capacity as well as the 25 kN linear force provided by both frames.


8872 (25kN) Linear Fatigue
Testing System

Table-top dynamic test frame for versatile, high frequency, linear testing up to ±25 kN (5620 lbf). A crosshead mounted actuator, adjustable crosshead and corrosion resistant T-slot table with drainage channel optimise this frame for component testing within a small footprint.



8874 (25 kN/100 Nm) Linear-Torsion
Fatigue Testing System

Table-top dynamic test frame for versatile, high frequency, linear-torsion testing up to ±25 kN (5620 lbf) and ±100 Nm (880 in-lb) torque capacity. A combined decoupled linear-torsion actuator makes this system ideal for testing components or orthopaedic fixtures, while the T-slot table with drainage channel allow for the mounting of an optional fluid bath.
