Compression Test machines are universal testing machines specially configured to evaluate static compressive strength characteristics of materials, products, and components. Our compression test machines measure characteristics such as ultimate compression strength, yield strength, deflection and modulus.
Each compression tester is configured to your test applications by our application engineers with the correct controller, grips, and accessories. Due to our modular machine design, your compression test machine can also be equipped to perform other applications such as tensile, cyclic, shear, flexure, bend, peel, tear by adding appropriate fixtures.
Selecting a compression test machine
Your first step to choosing the correct compression tester is to determine your specimen geometry, size and strength characteristics. Armed with this information our applications engineer can identify the test machine capacity and compression platens needed to crush your sample. The next step is to decide the test data you want which will help confirm the best controller and test software for your test.
