Its heavy-duty design and precise stepper-motor control provides a stable platform for years of reliable service. From educational institutions and consulting firms to high-volume commercial labs and construction projects, the HM-5170A Load Frame can perform these applications with ease.
The HM-5170A is built around Humboldt‘s integral, data logger with touch-screen control, which allows the load frame to be used as a standalone device capable of full test control and data logging.
