Table Top Load Frame


The Table Top Load Frame is a compact and affordable testing system with both static and dynamic loading capabilities. It can be engaged in a variety of tests, and it has improved accuracy at low speeds due to low friction hydrostatic bearings.
The standard system includes:

  • Hydraulic lifts
  • Close coupled accumulators for highly dynamic response
  • Solenoid valve to isolate inlet pressure
  • Servo valve
  • Load cell
  • Concentric LVDT
  • Industry standard wiring and connections


Key Benefits

  • The frame has high stiffness and low mass which creates high natural frequency for a wide range of testing
  • A polymer coated 5.5 KIP hydrostatic actuator is integrated in the crosshead increasing the lateral stiffness
  • Side mounted lift actuators adjust the crosshead height
  • The controller for the Table Top Load Frame provides a robust system with an unmatched ease of use


  • Tension/compression testing
  • Bending testing
  • Fatigue testing
