G23 Compression PlatenG23 Compression PlatensG23 Compression Platen

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.
