Introduction

Designed in close cooperation with industry, the 17-76 Compression Tester is rugged enough for any production testing environment. Utilizing intuitive hardware features and menu-driven software, the 17-76 is designed to provide highly accurate measurement of compressive strength for a variety of materials.

Microprocessor control and operator-friendly software makes the 17-76 simple to operate. A new Servo motor design provides closed loop feedback for accurate and repeatable position control.  Ergonomic control layout maximizes the testing sequence while minimizing sample testing errors resulting in incorrect data.  The instrument meets or exceeds all international testing standards for accuracy, precision, and parallelism.

System software includes 8 corrugated test methods for quick access including: RCT, CCT, ECT, CMT, FCT, PAT, CLT and SQT- score test which calculates dcore ratio of scored verses unscored samples.  Test methods can be created by the operator and stored for future reference to simplify test set up. Other compression methods include peak force, peak height and stack load.
