Specially designed for the plastic pipe industry, this universal compression/tension tester offers a unique solution for generating, filing and displaying quality data. It is built around a four-spindle testing machine, and it offers the user a fast and effective way of generating and presenting a quality report. Additionally it offers a data filing and retrieving system providing the user instant access to reports on any previously tested samples. Much more than just the strength test results can be included in the quality report. The TRAM QA software offers 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.
The floor-mounted machine can be supplied with different stroke lengths. The special machine design provides optimum stiffness resulting in accurate deformation measurements. Testing is controlled from the computer after keying in sample identification. During the testing the load-deformation curve is simultaneously generated on the monitor. The machine is supplied with grips and loading plates to suit the products to be tested. Automatic positioning of the loading beam virtually eliminates the waiting time between tests. Additionally the system incorporates a facility to connect it to an external device such as a balance so that results can be directly transferred to system for further processing.

An extraordinarily stiff frame construction, loading via a sealed ball-screw system and an accurate measure of the loading beam travel is the basis of the RFT-system. An IBM compatible computer with TRAM QA Windows software makes the machine a powerful "automatic" system for generating, filing and displaying quality data for many types of production. 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 a fanless PC. 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. Special systems for board, sheet and slab manufacturing industries can also be supplied.
