3000-4000 kN – 3 columns
3-column testing machine with load capacity 3000 kN or 4000 kN
This geometrically perfectly (Isostatic) shaped frame ensures an ideal application of the load which is ideally centered on the specimen axis (Perfect line-up between the Jack and the ball seated joint axes) complying with the EN 12 390-4.
Norme : EN 12390-4
The absence of antagonistic efforts induced by an excentered load axis, as well as the extreme rigidity of the frame, ensures the excellent accuracy of this machine.
Furthermore its excellent rigidity (deformation < 0.75 mm at 3000 kN) and its Jack with extra long guidance, make this frame the ideal machine for High Performance Concrete (HPC) testing.
The space between columns being bigger than with any 4 Column structure, ensures an excellent access to the specimen.
The Ergonomic working height (800 mm) allows you to install the machine on the ground, without any need for building a concrete machine base.
