310 Universal Test Machine

300 Series Dual Column Electromechanical Universal Test Machines are the best choice for performing static tension and/or compression applications which require higher forces, higher speeds or increased test space than the 100 or 200 Series can offer. Models are available with load capacities between 5 kN and 600 kN (1,125 lbf and 135 kip). These dual column test machines perform the full gamut of mechanical including Tensile, Compressive, Bend, Bond, Flexural, Fracture, Peel, Shear, Tear, Stress Relaxation, and Short term Creep tests. Each system is configured to your application needs.
