Lloyd Instruments Launches 2 High-Precision Testers
High-precision materials tester.
Largo, FL — Ametek Test & Calibration Instruments has introduced two additions to its Lloyd Instrument line of advanced materials testing systems: the Models LS5 and LS2.5. Both are single-column machines that incorporate the latest linear guide technology, pre-loaded ball screws and advanced software compensation systems, ensuring the highest level of precision displacement measurement.

The LS5 is a 5kN/1124 lbf machine; the LS2.5 is a 2.5kN/562 lbf device. Both models are available with an extensive range of grips, fixtures, extensometers and software options; provide a large work area with 150mm throat depth for larger specimens; and offer a wide range of work tables for increased flexibility.

The testing systems are well suited for a wide range of materials testing applications in quality control, academic, and R&D environments.

Applications for the LS5 are plastics, packaging, medical devices, automotive, electronics, textiles, rubber and pharmaceuticals. The LS2.5 system is especially suited for plastic, rubber and other high-elongation materials due to its wide crosshead travel of up to 1400mm. Both can be used for tensile and compression testing, friction, tearing, peeling, insertion/extraction, creep/relaxation and many other measurements in manufacturing, product development and research.

Each instrument offers a wide speed range for high precision accuracy and improved productivity. The LS5 has a crosshead speed range of 0.01 to 1016 mm/min, while the LS2.5 has a crosshead speed range of 0.01 to 2032 mm/min. Both machines have exceptional load accuracy of ±0.5 down to 1 percent of load cell value, which provides high dynamic range and thereby reduces the number of load cells required to cover the force range.
