The Chatillon range of advanced digital force testers from Lloyd Instruments has been expanded with the TCD1100, thus extending the force testing capacity of the TCD Series to 5kN. In common with other force testers in the TCD Series, the TCD1100 features an intelligent universal interface, eliminating the need for a PC without compromising operational performance and capability. It is designed for higher force applications in production, quality control and engineering. Tension, compression, shear, peel, flexural, constant load holds, creep, cycling and sophisticated multi-stage testing can be performed. Standard test set-ups are provided for load limits, distance limits, time limits, break tests, rupture tests and cycling & loop tests.
