Fixed Platens

Our compression fixtures make it easy to perform compression tests. Fixed platens are rigidly fixed, stiff and resistant to off center loads. That way, parallelism is ensured during specimen failure. Standard options include platens where the edge of the platen can attach to optional displacement transducers, allowing measurements of direct displacement between two (equal sized) platens during a compression test.

  • Enables uniform compression stress distribution tests
  • Available as spherical or fixed platens
  • Available in steel, lightweight aluminum, bio-compatible delrin, or stainless steel construction
  • Available in a wide range of dimensions with test machine adapter to match your existing test machine

Need help? There are so many compression fixtures to choose from it can be overwhelming and you certainly don’t want to make the mistake of selecting the wrong one. Give us a call today to speak to one of our experienced engineers that will work with you to find the exact solution based on your test requirements.
