Torsion Tester

For maximum versatility and capability, Tinius Olsen offers a full range of torsion testing machines in capacities from 10,000 to 300,000 in.lbf or (1,000 to 30,000 N.m). Higher capacity and other longer length models are available upon request. These uniquely superior torsion testers provide loading and weighing capabilities in both directions of rotation. This feature makes it possible to conveniently determine not only the ultimate torque of a specimen, but also how that specimen behaves under conditions of continuous or intermittent torque loading in both directions. Essentially, each torsion tester comprises a variable speed drive loading system and a digital control and indicating system in a fixed section of the machine. The weighing head with its strain gage torque sensor is mounted on a movable section that can be positioned on rails to accommodate specimens of varying lengths. Our 10,000 in.lbf (1,000 N.m) torsion tester is bench mountable and the moveable section slides on a guide rail.
