Compresion Test Fixtures

Compresion Test Fixtures

In compression testing applications, the specimen is compressed until it cracks, breaks or is crushed to a specified level. Test specimens and compression platens must be matched for size, shape, surface pressure, material and surface roughness of the platens. A variety of platens are available including standard fixed lightweight aluminum and Delrin platens for biomedical and other light force applications. Hardened and stainless steel fixed platens and spherical seated platens are common for high force tests on hard materials.
