Lloyd Instruments has announced the exciting new LS1 high performance single column materials testing machine. The versatile LS1 provides the medical, medical device, medical packaging and pharmaceutical manufacturing industries with a complete, high specification materials testing solution up to 1 kN (225 lbf), featuring: • A full suite of control and test software functionality with seamless data transfer • Powerful security and audit trail function to help meet FDA 21 CFR Part 11 regulations • Dedicated sample holding grips and fixtures • Options for high volume automated tests The LS1 universal testing machine has a new mechanical design featuring linear guide technology, pre-loaded ball screws and sophisticated software compensation systems for high accuracy measurements even over very small extensions or compressions. A load accuracy of 0.5% down to 1% of load cell value provides high accuracy measurement across a wide range of loads and means many users will now only need a single load cell for their applications. With an extended crosshead speed range from 0.01 – 2032 mm/min, the LS1 can be used for tensile, compression, flexural and friction testing including high volume automated testing. The LS1 test machine can be used in stand alone mode using an optional LCD control console or with a PC or laptop using Lloyd Instruments’ highly acclaimed NEXYGENPlus control and analysis software. The machine is also supplied with a remote hand-held controller as standard.
