The heavy duty load frame of the 400K machines feature thicker crossheads and its wrap around frame design. Loading of heavy specimens is done easily with its wider horizontal frame opening and lower compression platen table. Cylinders with pad cap rings easily sit on the front edge of the table and then slide into place, not lifted. The lower platen is hardened to 55 HRC or greater and hard nickel plated for longer service life. Optional accessories are available, such as: test platen sets, spacers, test cylinder loading shelf, and machine mounting stand.
