The new Chatillon force testers feature a host of improvements including the robust, reliable and user-friendly touch screen. The 8.9" industrial-grade touch screen (IP65) that has been specifically designed for easy continuous operation in a production environment. It is dust protected and can withstand liquid spills and splashes. Not only is it rugged but is easy to operate, making it the perfect interface for users regardless of their skill level.
The Chatillon CS225 and CS1100 are both single-column machines featuring the latest linear guide technology, pre-loaded ball screws and advanced software compensation systems, ensuring the highest level of precision displacement measurement. The CS225 is a 225 lbf/ 1000 N machine featuring a large work area with 180mm troat depth. The CS1100 is a 1124 lbf/ 5000 N machine and features a large work area with 150mm throat depth. Both machines are available with an extensive range of grips, fixtures, extensometers and software options and a wide range of work tables for increased flexibility. Both models are easy to use with intuitive systems for tensile testing, compression testing, sheer testing, flexural testing or advanced multi-stage testing that conform to ISO or ASTM testing procedures.
A few touches are all it takes to set up a test, select test runs and present reports. Reports can be done as both .pdf and .csv files. Data storage can be done easily internally or on an external server, which provides for efficient procedures for documenting yields, product quality and performance.
Among the industry applications for the CS Series are plastic, packaging, medical devices, automotive, electronics, textiles, rubber and pharmaceuticals. Both machines are ideal for the manufacturing and testing of both inbound and outbound products and materials.
The CS units feature two levels of user access: supervisor and operator. Both levels can be password protected. The supervisor level has complete system access, while the operator level can be configured to only have specified tests or test funcitons. To enhance ease of use, specific tests can be defined as favourites to be displayed on the startup screen for immediate testing.
