The UCT is fully controlled from the accompanying PC with the professional Tram-QA software that can run virtually any test fully automatically and at the same time automatically collect testing results and store them in a database. Tram-QA offers the user a fast and effective way of generating and presenting a quality report. Additionally, Tram-QA offers a data filing and retrieving system giving 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 spreadsheet that can be set up for virtually 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 bench-mounted machine is compact, and it can be supplied with different stroke lengths, and optional a second testing positions above the travelling beam. The machine is built around a two-spindle design. This machine design provides optimum stiffness resulting in accurate deformation measurements. Testing is controlled from the computer and a test is started by pressing a single key after keying in the sample identification, if any. 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 it 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 UCT. 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 professional-version is supplied in National languages as required. A simple calibration procedure is included in the software. Furthermore it has an advanced overload protection system that prevents damaging the loadcells.
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.
