Fundamentals of Statics TM 110

Fundamentals of Statics

Type: TM 110
Name: Fundamentals of Statics
Technical Description

  The experimental unit demonstrates fundamental principles of statics such as the equilibrium of forces and moments, resolution of forces, the law of levers, and more.
  The base element is an upright panel. Feet enable the panel to stand on a laboratory bench. All parts required for the experiment can be quickly attached to the rails around the edges. The imprinted line grid and grid-marked lever rods permit precise assembly. The lengths marked on the grid make it easy to define angles. A wide range of mountings, such as cables, rods, pulleys, torque discs, pivot bearings and the like, can be easily fixed in place and combined. Ball bearings integrated into the panel permit low-friction torque experiments. The versatility of the experimental unit helps students to explore their creativity in developing their own experiments.
  Large-format force gauges are particularly well suited to demonstration purposes. The adjustable transparent dial enables input loads, such as dead-weights, to be taken into account.
  As a special teaching aid, it is possible to write directly on the panel with erasable markers. Markings, sketches and comments can be added to supplement the experiments. All parts are clearly laid out and well protected on a storage system. The storage systems are stackable, providing for space-saving storage.

  Three supplementary sets are available to extend the scope of experimentation, providing additional experiments relating to the inclined plane, friction, pulley blocks and gear wheels.
