The 500K machines are designed to meet the demands of testing high strength concrete specimens. As well as a production testing program where accurate and repeatable test results are required. It exceeds both ACI and ASTM requirements for frame rigidity and accuracy. Ideal for commercial testing laboratories that commonly test a wide variety of specimen types.
The design of a CM-5000 machine features easier operation and loading of specimens. Its load frame features a wide horizontal opening, large lower platen table, and bottom-mounted piston with dust shield. In addition a heavy duty load frame mounting stand that positions the lower platen at a convenient height loading heavy test specimens. The lower platen table is hardened to 55 HRC or greater for longer service life. The platen table is also plated for corrosion resistance and marked with concentric circles for easier centering of test specimens. The machine comes with 2 year warranty on parts and labor.
