Railway sleeper compression machine



  • 4 pillars with integral strain gauging for resilient and accurate performance. Load is measured by adding together the 4 load cells (one per column) thus ensuring accurate load measurement throughout the life of the machine.
  • Fixed top crosshead with ball seat mounting top platen ensuring even load distribution
  • Fixed base mounting actuator assembly
  • Test set up, operation, control, display and data logging is via a software programme running in Windows on a desktop PC with mouse and keyboard. The programme is part of the software suite of the 779 Series Servo-controller and Data Acquisition Unit detailed separately.
  • Timings for load ramp and dwell can be defined by the operator.
  • A remote pendant enables the operator to pause the test when a crack is identified and record the load.
  • 1000kN servo-hydraulic with 50mm stroke.
  • Rail seat positive load test
  • Positive and negative centre load tests
