Test System Components

INOVA loading frames are designed to provide exceptional results in any application, including high-frequency and high-speed testing. INOVA offers a wide portfolio of loading frames to cover your needs:

  • Standard loading frames with vertical loading axis, featuring two or four columns and a hydraulic actuator mounted either in the table or crosshead. An enhanced version with a crosshead mounted tension-torsion loading unit is available as an option. The use of hydrostatic bearings in all loading unit components – i.e. the linear actuator, torsional actuator and coupling between both actuators – ensures outstanding precision, performance and durability.
  • High-speed loading frames for high speed and high frequency applications, including multi-axis loading scenarios.
  • Custom special-purpose loading frames for single-axe or multi-axis load tests.


Because to their advanced mechanical and hydraulic design, INOVA Loading Frames can be integrated into high-safety test rigs with a safety rating up to PLe.
