Compact and reliable test systems for development
Biaxial machines – the H.11 series system from the LABORTECH company enable test technicians to simulate real real and demanding conditions on samples. This device can stress the sample in several directions at once with any coefficient of load asymmetry and at the same time guarantees test technicians to have 100% control over this process.
The LabTest H.11 Series Servohydraulic Testing System provides a complete spectrum of static and dynamic planar biaxial material stress testing, high cycle fatigue, material crack growth, and environmental simulation on a variety of materials. These are mainly the aerospace, automotive and nuclear industries and the development of wind turbine blades.
For all modifications of the LABORTECH H.11 biaxial test systems produced by us, the mechanical and hydraulic parts can be combined modularly using any additional accessories. Many optional functions allow you to perform both static and dynamic tests in one or more X and Y axes, both positional and force loops, and to meaningfully and efficiently simulate and test special materials and components in various modes.
Intuitive and trouble-free use of testing software designed for biaxial tests DYNPACK and BENTROD produced by LABORTECH guarantees you a reliable declaration of results and, above all, continuous data collection from all X and Y during continuous testing.

Test frame of the machine, including special accessories
You will not find a machine with higher rigidity in our portfolio…
Vertical stand frame design with the highest rigidity
Vertical stand frame design characterized by extremely high lateral rigidity, resonant and mechanical resistance in dynamic mode for each test axis of the machine. Mechanical and hydraulic protection of the actuators against impact in all axes. The system is designed with an adjustable CEDEROD leveling device in the load path, including a force sensor for each axis. Special pneumatic damping assembly enabling the elimination of vibrations with an efficiency higher than 95%.
Actuators-drives – hydraulic servo cylinders
The actuators – drives – hydraulic servo cylinders X and Y are arranged at right angles in one plane from the front view. The actuators with a stroke of +/- 50 mm (total stroke 120 mm) used in the frame are specially designed for surface biaxial testing with a small internal oil volume to increase the rigidity of the system. The hydrostatic bearings of each drive with minimal friction allow to guarantee the testing the appropriate rigidity and coaxiality. Integrated acceleration compensation and moment of inertia elimination for high-frequency testing for each axis separately.
Special wedge dynamic grips with hydraulic pressure
In the load axis, there are special wedge dynamic jaws with hydraulic pressure and an integrated adjustable cage that eliminates rotation, deflection of the entire axis with the possibility of precise setting of the required tolerance and mechanical stop. The hydraulic grips include 4 pairs of flat inserts with a pyramid surface, special centering on a pin, clamping surface 110 x 110 mm, dimensioned for a maximum load of 1300 N / mm2. System for central control of hydraulic grips on individual axes with monitoring of force increase during sample clamping and monitoring of clamping center.
Rexroth Hydraulic compact unit
The harmony of pressures and flows defines the accuracy and reliability of the system.
Efficiency comes first
The hydraulic unit is designed as a compact hydraulic unit designed for fatigue tests with water cooling. All these parts are located on a steel welded tank with a sump. The energy-saving variable displacement axial pump ensures maximum efficiency of the hydraulic system and regulates the flow of the supplied medium as required.
HAD has a G500Q4 system for controlling hydraulic jaws. Pressure circuit 450 bar with pressure transducer, for 4 jaws, throttle valves, manual pressure valves, etc.
System diagnostics and control
The Rittal central control panel is equipped with the HALT 18 – Diagnostic control system with HA system status, pressure and service interval monitoring system consisting of SIEMENS SIMATIC electronics. The message is displayed on the SIEMENS LCD touch screen. This system allows you to perform remote diagnostics from the control room, office or even a mobile phone.
Automatic interlocks protect against unintentional damage due to high temperature or high / low fluid level or oil leakage from the system. For greater protection, adjustable user limits for monitoring various HU parameters are available.
Quiet, clean and compact design
Covering is done with a special anti-noise cover PAC 250 consisting of polyurethane panels with a guaranteed total noise HU – <72 dB. Easy access from all sides using quick couplings allows easy handling around the HU (filter change, oil change, etc.). Thanks to the force-block suspension, the HU can be placed directly on the floor of the test room.
The connection between the HAD hydraulic unit and the machine frame is made using the VOSSFORM system, including a pressure test by Rexroht. Oil stains and gutters have no chance.
