UCT-1000 Uniaxial Testing System


The GCTS UCT-1000 Uniaxial Testing System includes advanced software and is capable of performing various tests such as the uniaxial compression test and the uniaxial tension test with precision. All data collected can be easily sent to other computers, thus making for effortless sharing and backing up of test results for the uniaxial test.

 

  • Compression and Tension loading system with electro-hydraulic closed-loop digital servo control.
  • Static and Dynamic loading capabilities.
  • Adjustable cross-head design.
  • Accepts GCTS High Pressure triaxial cell & other testing components.
  • Ideal for performing unconfined compression, bending, indirect tension, fracture, creep, and other material tests.
  • Available systems with load capacities up to 4,500 kN (1,000 kips) and stiffness up to 4,300 kN/mm (25x106 lbs/inch).
  • Economical “turn-key” systems built to customer specifications.

GCTS Uniaxial Testing Systems include our state-of-the-art SCON-1500 Digital Signal Conditioning & Servo Controller CATS software. The system is capable of performing static and dynamic closed-loop load, deformation, strain or any other measured or calculated parameter. Automatic “bump-less” or smooth control transfer can be programmed at any test stage. The true 32-bit Windows compatible software allows sending directly your test data to any computer connected to your local network. Using a Windows network system in your lab facilitates the transferring of your test data directly into other Windows programs such as Word or Excel for report generation as well as to easily backup your important test results.
