cLine - first choice for testing automotive seats

The cLine materials testing machine range features a test area which is open on three sides. cLine materials testing machines are especially suitable for component testing and for testing flexible foam materials. Component testing mainly takes place on flexible foam products such as mattresses and vehicle seats and upholstery. For materials testing, cubes or slabs of flexible foam are used. Compression tests, cyclic indentation tests and pulsating compressive strength tests (alternating load tests) are applied. Used in conjunction with our intuitive testXpert II testing software, cLine materials testing machines are very easy to operate.

cLine materials testing machine for testing automotive seating

Technical overview

  • cLine is available with test speeds from 0.0005 to 1000 mm/min, depending on type. Testing machine speed is independent of the test load.
  • The high test-speed range can be used without restriction. In addition, test loads up to 110% of machine nominal load are permissible to compensate for heavy combinations of test fixtures, accessories etc.
  • cLine is available for test loads up to 10 kN and with a test-area height of 819 mm.
  • cLine can be operated with standard commercial PCs or laptops and requires no special expansion cards.

cLine materials testing machine - convenient operation

Convenient operation
All-round convenience, with side operating position, swiveling table extensions incorporated on both sides, an additional single-sided table extension and an optional display-equipped remote control for set-up and operating modes.

cLine offers standard-compliant positioning accuracy

Standard-compliant positioning accuracy
Standard-compliant positioning accuracy is reliably achieved. The corrected targets are approached using online correction performed automatically in the testing software and the testControl II electronics. For the user this means greater accuracy in displacement measurement at specified loads.

Powerful drives

Powerful drives
Extremely low minimum speeds can be set, combined with excellent speed-constancy, while the drive with zero-backlash ball-screw delivers high crosshead travel resolution. The motor employs zero-maintenance AC technology and the high test-speed range can be used without restriction. Faster return speeds mean reduced cycle times and increased test throughput.

Indenters for cLine

As fixtures, indenters are available in different diameters according to the requirements of standards or company specifications and are circular flat, domed or spherical. They are easy to install and change.

Integration into production process

Integration into production
cLine materials testing machines can optionally be integrated into the production process, for example by positioning roller conveyors before and after the support table.
