KM.1 – Vertical angular torsion series up to 5000Nm

Electromechanical vertical torsion testing machines of the KM.1 series in a stand design up to 5000 Nm, which are primarily intended for measuring torque and friction torque, including the angle of rotation of both parts and entire products with the possibility of performing these tests over “0”. research and development, routine quality control in laboratories and operations, but also for assembly and testing semi-automatic lines. LABORTECH machines are characterized by very high rigidity of the test frame, speed and accuracy of measurement in semi-automatic mode.


General key features of the KM.1 series

  • Robust vertical stand modular design with mechanical resistance and durability.
  • Abnormally high rigidity and mechanical resistance of the machine combined with ergonomics at a high level.
  • Integrated torsion mechanism at the top or bottom of the machine – depending on application.
  • Quiet and precise AC servo drive with cycloidal gearbox with low noise and high angular resolution and max. Angular rotation ± 180 °.
  • The KM series machines comply with all the above-mentioned EC directives on machinery and equipment and work in accordance with the new safety functions according to EN ISO 13850-SIL 1 / PL.
  • Torque sensors working in accuracy class according to EN ISO 7500-1, ASTM E4 incl. linearization.
  • The machine is controlled by measuring and control electronics of the EDCi series with a sampling frequency of 2.5 or 10 kHz. Analog signal resolution level ± 250,000 divisions (20 ms).
  • Protective safety covers made of ITEM profiles and polycarbonate with high safety EN ISO 13849-1 / 2 or safety barrier.
  • Possibility to control and set the machine using a touch LCD monitor.
  • Complete evaluation and test control software for testing materials in torsion – KMTest.
  • Wide range of accessories – test mandrels, fixtures, holders, chucks, etc.
