The AG-032 is a didactic bench-top universal material testing unit. It is distinguished by its rigid construction, accurate control and a precise hydraulic system to apply loads of up to 20 kN., which enables demonstrations of phenomena undetectable under smaller loads.
With this unit the student can perform these material tests:
Brinell hardness test.
Deep draw (cupping) test.
Disc and helical spring tests.
1.- Learning how to use the instrumentation required to perform the main tests on materials.
2.- Study and familiarization with universal material testing machines.
3.- Tensile strength tests.
4.- Compressive strength tests.
5.- Brinell hardness tests.
6.- Bending tests.
7.- Shear tests.
8.- Deep draw (cupping) tests.
9.- Tests with disc springs.
10.- Tests with helical springs either in series or in parallel.
11.- Recording stress-strain diagrams.
12.- Using the computer data acquisition system.
