MTS 50k/1650 ft-lb Axial-Torsion Dynamic Universal Testing Machine

The MTS 6612 Axial-Torsion Universal Testing Machine is capable of performing dynamic testing in simultaneous axial/torsion loading regime with independent control commands and tuning parameters. The system may be used for low to high-cycle fatigue testing. The open architecture of the state of the art MTS controller allows the machine to follow complex logic-driven test procedures. The hydraulic-driven crosshead and multipurpose active hydraulic wedge grips allow the machine to be reconfigured for various tests within minutes.
