RTC 9001

RTC 9001

Manufactured by Life Testing Machines

Originating from Italy and utilising premier technologies, the RTC 9001 controller series is engineered to facilitate precise and reliable mechanical structural tests. This series is adept at overseeing various actuators and motors, ensuring versatility across testing applications.

The RTC 9001 distinguishes itself as a mono-axial controller focused on delivering excellence in static and cyclic testing.

It supports an array of control options, including displacement, force, auxiliary (+/-10V) channel, and encoder control. Enhanced with four additional read-only analogue input channels synchronised with the active axis, this controller maximises testing precision and possibilities.

The RTC 9001 is configurable for pneumatic (P), electric (E), or hydraulic (H) modes and seamlessly integrates with different actuator types, underlining its adaptability.


  • Static Yield/Failure Testing: This method is excellent for assessing the breakage or yield point of composite materials and dental implants, among other materials, under static stress.
  • Stiffness Testing: Evaluates the rigidity of individual and combined components crafted from metals, plastics, composites, 3D-printed, and biological materials, offering crucial data on material behaviour.
  • Dynamic Testing: This type of testing uses sine waves, pulsed square waves with customisable duty cycles, or constant-speed triangle waves, which are ideal for analysing the performance of suspension systems or shock absorbers.
  • Constant Amplitude Fatigue Testing: Assesses the endurance of various components under cyclic or repeated stress, facilitating the creation of Wöhler curves for predictive analysis.
  • Constant Amplitude Block Fatigue Testing: Aids in establishing the Palmgren-Miner relation and calculating the damage values, enhancing component design and testing protocols.
  • Variable Amplitude Fatigue Testing: This technology enables the lab-based reproduction/simulation of real-world load curves gathered on-site, mirroring actual operational stresses for comprehensive analysis.
  • Reproduction of Load Curves: This tool supports the simulation of load curves defined during the design phase, including seismic testing simulations, for a broad spectrum of testing requirements.
