Fast interchangeability, a vast testing ecosystem and many modules to choose from is what makes the UNITEST so powerful and adaptable. Our platform design is modular and open. It comes standard with a synchronized dual drive system and an embedded high precision Y stage. High precision position sensors are embedded in both axes. Its electronics is physically separated for excellent isolation high fidelity data acquisition capabilities.
The UNITEST can be equipped with a variety of loading and sensing heads that are quickly interchangeable. These heads are available with force measurement capabilities in 1, 2, 3 and 6 axis. These load cells can be strain gauged, capacitive or piezoelectric.
Our patented multi-axis load sensor offers unparalleled performance in a compact form factor. Another one of our patented sensor is designed to fully mechanically decouple forces for unparalleled performance.
By interchanging load heads, the UNITEST platforms testing and measurement capabilities can range from nano scale to macro scales. Our load head options are our patented MicroForce load head for multi scale testing, DecaForce Load Head Series, HectoForce Load Head Series and the KiloForce Load Head Series. Our specially developed BioForce Load Head which was purpose built for biotribological applications is also available.
Precise and controlled movements are fundamental to many mechanical tests and all tribological tests. The UNITEST offers a wide variety of motion modules, so you can adapt your test system to match your specific movement requirements. Motion modules are all software controlled and programmable. Some of our standard motion modules include Linear Micro Drive, Linear Macro Drive, Linear High Performance Drive and Rotary Drives. Other specialized drives are also available. These drives cover motion requirements for a range of applications from pin on disk testing and piston and cylinder liner testing to fretting wear tests.
Low temperature testing options for ambient to -120 Deg C (-184 F) and high temperature options for ambient to 1200 deg C (2200 F) are available for testing temperature dependent properties of materials. Other environment control systems like lubrication modules, corrosion modules and humidity modules are also available.
Using our plug and play digital microscopy module, you can now image samples with complete flexibility. With built-in Brightfield Microscopy and Darkfield Microscopy modes, the digital microscopy module can be mounted on our unique moving beam and a large platform that can accommodate small to large sample sizes with ease.
Non contact 3D profilometry head can be added on to the UNITEST to enhance surface measurement capabilities. Mounted on the moving Z-Axis beam, the profiler head can quickly and conveniently be placed over the area of interest on a specimen for easy high resolution 3D sample imaging. The integrated software works seamlessly and test data, digital microscopy images and 3D profilometry data can all be combined for easy reporting.
The UNTEST platform is capable of performing various test standards when configured with the right options and accessories.
