RTC 9000

RTC 9000

Manufactured by Life Testing Machines

Crafted and assembled in Italy with cutting-edge technology, the RTC 9000 controller series is a cornerstone for conducting accurate and dependable mechanical structural tests. This range is adept at handling various actuators and motors, making it a versatile tool for diverse testing needs.

The RTC 9000, a multi-axial controller capable of supporting up to four active axes, excels in performing both static and cyclic tests. It offers a wide array of control options, including displacement, force, auxiliary (+/-10V) channel, and encoder control, all while managing multiple axes concurrently.

Including four additional read-only analogue input channels synchronised with the active axes further elevates the capabilities of this controller.

Designed for complex testing scenarios requiring simultaneous multi-axis operations on a single test subject, the RTC 9000 is unparalleled. It adapts effortlessly across pneumatic, electric, and hydraulic modes for managing corresponding actuators, ensuring broad applicability.


Static Yield/Failure Testing: This method is ideal for testing composite materials and dental implants, among other things, to assess their breaking points or yield under static conditions.

Stiffness Testing: Suitable for evaluating the stiffness of single and assembled components made from metal, plastic, composite materials, 3D-printed items, and biological materials.

Dynamic Testing: Capable of conducting tests using sine waves, square waves with adjustable duty cycles, or constant-speed triangle waves, perfect for evaluating suspension systems or shock absorbers.

Constant Amplitude Fatigue Testing: Determines the lifespan of components under cyclic or repeated loads, generating Wöhler curves for lifespan prediction.

Constant Amplitude Block Fatigue Testing: Assists in determining the Palmgren-Miner relation and calculating actual damage values of components.

Variable Amplitude Fatigue Testing: Allows for the laboratory reproduction/simulation of real-world load curves acquired on-site, offering insights into component performance under varying load conditions.

Reproduction of Load Curves: Enables the simulation of user-defined load curves during the design phase, including seismic test simulations, providing a comprehensive tool for advanced testing requirements.
