Innovative Cylinder-Centric Design
Superior stiffness, alignment and ease-of-maintenance
The MTS Landmark System embraces a new approach to load
frame design that enhances system reliability and ease-ofmaintenance, while delivering the accuracy, repeatability and
flexibility that have come to define MTS Performance. The
Cylinder-Centric Design approach minimizes the required
number of joints, resulting in a load frame that exhibits superior
stiffness and alignment. With innovations such as an Integrated
Actuator Beam, piloted end-caps and direct actuator porting,
this design results in more efficient operation and minimal
down-time over the life of your test system.
9
Integrated Actuator Beam
The Cylinder-Centric Design approach integrates fatigue-rated
MTS actuators directly into a cast steel cross-beam to comprise
an Integrated Actuator Beam. This minimizes the number of
required joints, yielding a frame that exhibits high axial and
lateral stiffness and superior reliability. Easy access to both
ends of the cylinder facilitates quick and efficient servicing.
The Integrated Actuator Beam is also available for crossheadmounted actuation to deliver the same level of performance
and serviceability for test applications requiring the actuator to
be positioned above the test space.
Direct Actuator Porting
Piloted End Caps
Direct mounting and porting of
servovalves on the Integrated
Actuator Beam minimizes pressure
loss for more efficient delivery of
hydraulic power. A single-plane
interface provides for high-integrity
connections and a simple interface
to a new family of high-performance
hydraulic service manifolds.
Precision-machined connections
between the actuator cylinder and
end-caps guarantee extremely tight and
consistent alignment over the life of the
system, adding to the overall reliability
of the actuator and eliminating the need
for realignment after periodic maintenance.
Leading-edge Ergonomics
The world’s safest, highest performing material test environment
We worked closely with our global customer base to develop a
user-friendly testing environment that emphasizes operator
well-being, and simplifies test setup and operation. As a result, the
MTS Landmark System integrates intuitive, centralized controls,
enhanced safety features and a new, highly efficient workspace.
This means your operators can safely and reliably perform more
tests with fewer damaged or misaligned specimens.
an ergonomic body position. The compact system handset
provides the ultimate in test setup convenience, featuring a
clear test status display, precision controls for fine actuator
positioning and an ergonomic design for both right- and

Additional MTS Testing Capabilities
Axial Torsion Testing
MTS Model 809 A/T testing systems
feature extremely stiff, high natural
frequency load frames with integral axial
and torsional actuators. A/T loading of
tubular specimens has proven a valuable
method for investigating material
response to both static and fatigue
multi-axial stresses. The MTS Bionix®
tabletop A/T system offers similar
capabilities for lower force applications.
These compact systems are ideally suited
for small components, lower strength
materials, and a host of biomedical
applications, including testing the
durability and wear properties of knee,
hip and spine implants, and conducting
kinematics studies of skeletal tissue and
other orthopaedic constructs.
High Force Testing
MTS Model 311 high-force testing
systems integrate rigid, 4-column testing
units to deliver precise application of
high-force/high-displacement loads and
fatigue cycles. Highly configurable
Model 311 load frames can subject a
variety of specimens, components or
full-scale test articles to forces ranging
from 100 to 3,000 tons or higher. Robust
MTS grips, fixtures and transducers are
available for large size specimens to
complete this high-force test system.
High Rate Testing
Robust, high-performance MTS High Rate systems are used to
conduct automotive crash worthiness testing, forging simulation
and other high strain rate, or high penetration rate testing. They
feature high-response MTS servohydraulics, FlexTest digital
controls, high-speed data acquisition, and MTS TestSuite software
to provide an intuitive operator interface and flexible test analysis
and reporting.
Multiaxial Testing
MTS material testing capabilities include Planar Biaxial and
Planar Triaxial Testing Systems. These systems combine modular
frame technology, innovative centroid control, advanced
alignment and integrated environmental chambers to investigate
true, in-plane stress states of materials, or biaxial loading of
design elements. System features include high load axis stiffness
for low stored energy, and integral actuators with high lateral
stiffness to minimize buckling. Powerful features in the FlexTest
control software make centroid control easy to implement.
