For the development of foamed plastics, fiber-insulating materials, mineral foams and others the BASF Construction Solutions GmbH has acquired a universal testing machine Inspekt table 100kN. The global research and developing centre of the BASF research group in Trostberg, Germany, therewith pursues basic research and develops concrete products for different areas.
In contrast to the standard machines of the series Inspekt table the delivered universal testing machine has a straight front to enable the mounting of a protective door with telescope rails. Thereby a bigger test space is created than by using a round protective door. Another specific feature is the use of three freely adaptable load cells. Hence the testing machine can be used flexibly for different test tasks on materials with different stabilities and the demanded measuring accuracy is always reached.
For the many-sided test of the material characteristics of various materials a bending device with measuring sensor as well as tools belonging to customer are used.
