The increasing demand in industry for calibrated multicomponent measuring, especially with mixed loads, supports the necessary development for the next level of Multicomponent Standard Machines. Our next step is a flexible machine, which ensures an automatic force and moment generation for realistic load situations. The multicomponent measuring in realistic load situations improves test results, assures comparability to application and reduces time expenses in calibration. This paper deals with definition of the capacity of the main components of the new machine type and its possibilities for realistic applications.
