Compression & Tension System
Updated for 2011, the Compression and Tension System (CTS) builds on the SportsLogic platform and features the most advanced testing platform available for sports material testing. Designed for ball, bat, and material testing, all CTS systems are powered by an advanced computer control software, MechLab, that allows the user to create an infinite array of test methods using a simple table format. Tests and data can be saved, copied, exported, and easily transferred to other systems.
The original ADC Compression System automated and standardized compression of golf balls and cores, allowing for the first time for comparable data to be shared world-wide between labs, offices, suppliers. Prior to ADC Compression, hand testing of compression varied from day to day, user to user, and setup of the machine was archaic and cumbersome. Compression testing was time-consuming and inaccurate. Each company, each division, had its own units and methodology.
The CTS advances the original system with an improved mechanical design, advanced measurement hardware, a 1kHz scan rate, and a variety of mechanical configurations to satisfy the needs of any materials test. The CTS exceeds the capabilities and performance of mechanical test systems costing more than $100,000 at a fraction of the cost.
The CTS also has industrial testing applications.
