The new LS2.5 materials testing machine completes the family of single column instruments from Lloyd Instruments which also includes the LS1 and recently launched LS5 materials testing machines.
The LS2.5 features 1400 mm crosshead travel and high speed range of 0.01 - 2032 mm/min, making it i suited for testing plastic, rubber and other high elongation materials. From stand-alone operation via the convenient, integral control console to PC-control using Lloyd Instruments’ NEXYGENPlus materials testing software, the LS2.5 is an affordable, easy to use system.
With a force capacity of 2500 N (562 lbf) and using high accuracy interchangeable YLC Series loadcells for tension, compression and cycling through zero force measurements, the LS2.5 load measuring system exceeds the requirements of all recognised international standards.
A small tabletop footprint and large work area combine with a wide range of standard grips and fixtures, extensometers and software to establish the LS2.5 as a versatile materials testing system capable of making tensile, compression, flexural, friction, insertion/extraction, peeling, tearing and creep/relaxation tests on a vast range of material types and components.
