The MT 190 unit is supplied as a kit and contains all mechanical parts, measuring units, hydraulic components with seals and pipe material with all connecting parts. Assembly comprises the mechanical structure, the hydraulic assembly of both cylinders and the piping installation. All tools and aids required are included, as well as extensive teaching materials.
The MT 190.01 assembly set allows for data acquisition as an extension to the range of experiments. Using MT 190, students can learn about working on a complex project. This involves the planning, implementation and checking of processes related to assembly, commissioning and repair.
The assembled MT 190 experimental unit represents a real, fully functional materials tester that can be used to conduct tensile tests and Brinell hardness tests. The experimental unit has been developed specifically for experiments in small groups and is characterised by a clear design, simple operation and accessories that are easy to exchange.
The tensile specimens are clamped between the upper cross member and the crosshead. The hardness specimens are secured between the crosshead and lower cross member. The test force is generated by means of a hand-operated hydraulic system and displayed on a large force gauge with a drag indicator. A dial gauge measures the elongation of the specimens.
