The HM-5040 Grand Loader is ideal for just about any application from road construction to high-volume commercial and educational laboratories, which require higher pressure loading capacities up to 22000 lbf (100kN), such as those involving larger sized samples and samples comprised of rock and rock/soil mixtures. It’s wider stance and large vertical and horizontal clearances allows it to accommodate much large sample cells.
Its heavy-duty design and precise stepper-motor control provide a stable platform for years of reliable service allowing the HM-5040 to perform any tests required up to its load capacity of 22000 lbf (100kN). Like all elite series load frames, the HM-5040 is built around Humboldt’s integral, 4-channel 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. It can also be controlled by a networked computer at any location with access to the network.
The HM-5040 provides four (4) integral and independent data acquisition channels, which can be utilized in stand-alone configurations or accessed through a LAN-networked computer using Humboldt’s Next Software.The HM-5040 load frame is built with durable, high-quality components and features the use of a stepper motor, precision gears and gear box to ensure smooth and reliable operation, as well as precise results.
In stand-alone mode, the HM-5040 load frame provides a 7″ (178mm) touch-screen controller, giving you finger-tip control of your testing processes, as well as providing real-time, visual views of your data in both tabular and graphic formats. This waterproof, touch screen provides colorful, at-a-glance monitoring of testing functions without the use of a computer. Operators can see all the data in several formats at the machine while the test is running. Data can then be viewed simultaneously or downloaded later to a computer in the lab, in the next room or at a different location, while also providing report generation capabilities from within Humboldt’s NEXT software or our enhanced test-specific modules.
