High-Capacity Track Frame Offers New Capabilities

In an effort to expand our laboratory services for static, dynamic, and fatigue testing of ties and other track structures and components, TTCI has introduced the new High-Capacity Track Frame (HCTF). In a combined effort, TTCI’s Engineering, Instrumentation, and Facilities teams have designed, built, and installed this 110-kip load frame, actuator, and controller system allowing for a wide range of AREMA testing. The new HCTF can also be customized to allow for various other low frequency, high-capacity load testing as defined by the needs of the industry and our customers.
