Galdabini Quasar 50
The Galdabini dual column benchtop testing machine Quasar 50 - 50 kN is the ideal solution for testing medium sized metal samples, steel, aluminium, light alloys as magnesium casting alloy.
Programming tests and monitoring results can be controlled through the powerful and Intelligent Graphwork control software, which allows complete and accurate data management in accordance with European, North American and International Standards. This instrument is suitable to be used both in production lines where the operator has to be fast and efficient and can accurately control the test with the optional remote-control unit and also laboratory environments where the advanced software lets users analyse the test data.
They are typically used for static test like
- Tensile test: metal ISO6892-1 (method A + B), plastic ISO527, rubber DIN 53504
- Compression test: e.g. metal DIN 50106, components in automotive / industry, assemblies, spring testing …
- Flexure test: e.g. metal DIN EN ISO 7438, plastic EN ISO 178, flexure test on welding's …
- Cyclic tests: e.g. Mechanical fatigue of specimen (low dynamic), components …
- Tear test, peeling test, shearing test , friction test and much more
With this kind of universal testing machine you may perform tests on all kind of materials like metal, wood, textile, composite, plastic PP PU GFK CFK and other materials, components and structures.
The table top version of QUASAR Universal testing series are available as single column (QUASAR 2.5 kN) or as double column version for maximum forces of 5 | 10 | 25 | 50 | 100 kN. Additional there are available heavy load machine like QUASAR floor standing models forces 200 - 2.000 kN
The high performance and longevity are granted by a careful concept and a stiff monarchical structure and state of the art German electronic. This particular in accordance with the traditional "GALDABINI - Quality".
