Automated Cornell Type Tester by IDM

The Cornell Type Tester is used to test the long term capacity of bedding to resist cyclic loading.  The machine consists of a double hemispherical ram head on an adjustable shaft.  A load cell is located at the ram head to measure the force being applied to the bedding.

IDM has designed a Fully Automated Cornell Type Tester (model C0044-M2) which features:
  • PC & Operator Prompted Software
  • Adjustable Ram Head
  • Load Cell Capacity: 500lbF (2200N)
  • Multiple safety features
  • Printable Data Sheets and Data Storage
  • Real-time / remote PC and operational support by IDM via TeamViewer, Skype and other available sources
The ram head is automatically lowered so that the load/position data can be recorded for a few cycles.  This procedure is automatically performed at the start of the test and the subsequently at the end of each of the stages.



Our unique software offers automatic and/or manually adjustable parameters and a two page colour report is generated for printing.  Reports include both Load Deformation Results Graph and Cyclic Load Limit Characteristics and an Analysis Sheet.

IDM can assist with installation and training of this equipment upon request. Contact us for more information.
