MTS load frame

MTS servo-hydraulic fatigue load frame at APS 1-ID beamline This is a MTS model 858, hydraulically actuated with +-15kN capacity, with modified base to allow for easier manipulation with respect to the fixed x-ray beam. Added devices have been developed, often in conjunction with users, to allow for added in-situ functionality, described further below.
