CON-2CSP 250kN

Concrete Paving & Flag Tester


Designed for the Concrete industry, the CON 100-300 kN offers a unique solution for generating, filing and displaying quality data. It is built around a specially designed testing machine, and it offers the user a fast and effective way of generating and presenting a quality report for concrete flags and pavings. Additionally it offers a data filing and retrieving system giving the user instant access to reports on any previously tested samples. Much more than just the splitting test results can be included in the quality report. The TRAM QA software offers the user a simple way to incorporate all relevant quality parameters in a system of tables that can be set up for almost any application. It is ideally suited to quality assurance and process control as well as research and development. It is capable of performing a wide range of complex testing procedures and can be set up for relevant international or national standards - e.g. EN 1338.

The machine is up-stroke, table mounted and fitted with safety shields. The special machine design provides optimum stiffness resulting in accurate measurements. Testing is controlled from the computer after keying in sample identification. During the testing the load-time curve is simultaneously generated on the monitor. The machine is supplied with adjustable supports. Automatic positioning of the loading beam virtually eliminates the waiting time between tests.

An extraordinarily stiff open frame construction and loading via an up-stroke hydraulic piston are the basis of the CON-splitting tester. A PC with TRAM-QA Windows software makes the machine a powerful "automatic" system for generating, filing and displaying quality data for productions of concrete flags and pavings. Simple to use software will enable the operator to grow familiar with the test machine after a very short time, even if he has no experience at all in operating a computer. The software is supplied in national languages as required.

Comprehensive electronic protection prevents the machine from overloading damage or driving out of limits. A simple calibration procedure is included in the software. For operation in dusty environments the system can be supplied with the computer and printer in a sealed tower arrangement.

The equipment offers a great opportunity to improve quality management through instantaneous data generation. In spite of the highly advanced and automatic testing procedure operation is easy. Due to the modular design of the equipment and the versatility of the software, tailored systems can be offered at a moderate price.
