Applied Test Systems is the leader in reliable, long lasting, precise lever arm test systems. When combined with our wide range of accessory equipment these machines are capable of performing many types and variations of creep and stress rupture testing.

Lever Arm Test Systems

  • Designed for creep and stress rupture testing to ASTM and similar international standards.
  • Convenient construction to allow side operation and allows for a variety of furnaces and chambers.
  • Counterbalanced lever arm with precision ratio adjustment and rotatable hardened knife-edges and v-blocks. Lever arm construction includes rugged construction that reduces deflection and provides maximum linear knife edge contact.
  • Drawhead drive with precision guide assembly and variable speed drive to provide automatic loading and beam leveling.
  • Adjustable vibration isolator mounts
  • Accessories available for a wide variety of tests.

Available in many models up to 50,000 lb. (222.4 KN) maximum capacity.

Series 2300 / 2400 / 2500 Creep / Stress Rupture Testing Systems

ATS Creep Testing Systems are precision lever arm testers that incorporate a number of enhanced design features, making them far superior to those of our competitors.  Some of those features include:

  • Wide-frame construction which allows for a variety of environmental chambers, fixtures, and other accessories, while maintaining compact overall dimensions.
  • Convenient side operation.
  • Unique Lever Arm Design
    • Counterbalanced with precision ratio adjustment.
    • On-center loading, providing optimum strength and minimum deflection.
    • Rugged vee-block supports for maximum linear knife-edge contact.
    • Four-position rotatable Knife edges of high-strength hardened tool steel designed for easy rotation or replacement of worn edges.
  • Precision drawhead assembly, providing loading and automatic beam leveling.
  • Durable vibration isolator mounts to prevent disturbance to other sensitive equipment upon specimen breakage.
  • All models are available with either manual or WINCCS Controls.
