    Features of TE Measuring & Control software for cupping test

    TE software refers to the software characteristics of the top manufacturers of testing machine in the world and proposals of various testing requirements from the end users, and combines all the advantages of former versions of software with lots of new features. Optimized software structure makes the testing operation easy, convenient and powerful.


    The control modes, test data and curves can be displayed in real time in the main interface and can be shifted at any time.

The digital cupping tester is mainly used in the test of metal sheets and thin strips. The automatic cupping testing machine can test the plastic deformation performance of the sheets and thin strips. The automatic cupping testing machine meets the requirement of international GB/T 4156-2007 "Metal Material Sheet and Thin Strip Erichsen Cupping Test”.
Adopting a hydraulic clamping and hydraulic stamping composite oil cylinder, the cupping tester automatically shuts down when a test sample has crack, so as to facilitate the observation of crack. With peak value memorizing function, the cupping tester can automatically memorize the maximal stamping force and the maximal deformation depth. A turning type clamp ensures the convenient replacement, assembling and disassembling of a punch and a test sample.
