Up to 600 kN Force Capacity
Configurations can include:
- Floor, table model, or single column universal testing machines
- Pneumatic or hydraulic grips
- Advanced video extensometry or contacting extensometry for axial and transverse strain measurement
- End effectors and racks specific to a variety of materials
- Dual frame layout for increased throughput
- Integrated third-party hardware
The AT6 Automated Testing System is capable of performing automated tension, compression, and flexural tests on rigid plastics, elastomers, metals, composites, thin films, and biomedical applications.
The AT6 Automated Testing System is fully isolated within a safety enclosure, removing the operator from the testing area and thus from potential pinch hazards and repetitive motions typically involved in high volume manual testing.
Decrease in Repetitive
Elimination of Potential
Removal of Debris
Increasing Testing Throughput
The Mitsubishi robot can perform a variety of tasks unattended, allowing the operator to focus on skilled work.
An enhanced specimen removal device can increase throughput by removing a tested specimen while the next specimen is being prepared by the robotic arm.
Dual Frame Setup
A single robot can supply up to two tensile testing frames simultaneously for increased throughput.
ACCURACY AND CONSISTENCY
Eliminating Variability in the Testing Process
The AT6 can be programmed to measure each specimen before testing with the dual axis specimen measurement device.
Automated specimen marking allows accurate tracking by video extensometer.
Every move is programmed to replicate the same actions for each specimen, improving repeatability and reproducibility of testing and results.
