Large Direct Shear Apparatus


VJT2780A - Large Direct Shear Apparatus

VJ Tech’s new microprocessor based electro-mechanical/hydraulic large shear box is specifically designed for testing large specimen size up to 300 mm (11.8") square. The machine comes with a built-in four channel data logger for automatic data acquisition. The horizontal load is applied electro-mechanically and the vertical load is applied using hydraulic actuator. The machine is capable of applying 100kN (22480 lbf) vertical and horizontal force. VJT-csSHEAR software is available for operation and control via PC with automatic test control and data logging of results.
