Choose from 10 different frames with 100's of configurations
Tensile test machines, also known as tension test machines, are universal testing machines specially configured to evaluate the tensile strength of specimens. Our tensile testers will measure characteristics such as ultimate tensile strength, yield strength, elongation, and modulus. Each tensile test machine is configured to your testing needs by our application engineers with the correct controller, grips, and accessories.
Choose from 10 different frames and two different technologies with 100’s of configurations which allows you to optimize your testing capabilities and pick exactly what you need.
That means you get the exact system that matches the specifications you need and fits within your budget. More choices mean fewer compromises.
|Series||Type||Force Range||Relative Price|
|100 Series||Electromechanical||up to 9 kN (2,000 lbf)||$|
|200 Series||Electromechanical||up to 5 kN (1,125 lbf)||$$|
|300 Series||Electromechanical||up to 300 kN (112 kip)||$$$|
|600 Series||Electrohydraulic||up to 2 MN (450 kip)||$$$|
Electromechanical test machines are the best solution for tensile testing solutions ranging from low force up to 300 kN (112 kip). Electrohydraulic test machine configurations are best for high load capacities ranging from 300 kN (112 kip) to 2000 kN (450 kip).
Due to our modular machine design, your tensile tester can also be equipped to perform other applications such as compression, cyclic, shear, flexure, bend, peel, and tear just by adding fixtures.

You Can Pick the Right Tensile Test Machine in 4 Easy Steps
First, select your frame and actuator(Step 1) by series, then complete your system by selecting your controller software(Step 2) and accessories(Step 3). Choose from a wide range of controller software packages, grips, fixtures, chambers, video extensometers and more, are all designed to perform thousands of ASTM, ISO, EN, DIN and JEDEC industry standard test methods.
When you're ready to complete your system, contact us(Step 4), and an application expert will help you optimize your system to your test requirements and budget.
Start by Selecting a Series
Your first step to choosing the correct tension tester is to determine your specimen geometry, size and strength characteristics. Armed with this information our applications engineers can identify the test machine capacity and tensile grips needed to pull your sample apart. The next step is to decide the test data you want which will help confirm the best controller and test software for your test.

Force: 9 kN (2,000 lbf)
100 Series Electromechanical Tensile Test Machines are modular tabletop systems ideal for tensile tests requiring load capacities up to 9 kN (2,000 lbf). This affordable series includes five lightweight load frames and four actuators that deliver different force/speed capacities. We offer several choices of price/performance controllers and test software, and a selection of load cells from the full scale actuator rating down to sub-gram load levels. The 100 Series is our most flexible series, making them a popular choice.
Force: 5 kN (1,125 lbf)
200 Series Single Column Tensile Test Machines are capable of performing both compression and tensile testing applications and feature higher travel and faster speed than the 100 Series. They are available with force capacities up to 5 kN (1,125 lbf) and speeds up to 2,500 mm/min (100 ipm). 200 Series load frames are compact and lightweight and apply to situations where lab table space is limited.
Force: 300 kN (112 kip)
As our most popular test machines, the 300 Series Electromechanical Tensile Test Machines are the best choice for performing static compression applications at forces between 1 kN and 300 kN (225 lbf and 112 kip). These dual column testers are available in both tabletop and floor standing models which can perform a variety of other tests including Tensile, Bend, Bond, Flexural, Fracture, Peel, Shear, Tear, Stress Relaxation, and Short-term Creep tests.
Force: 2 MN (450 kip)
600 Series High Force Hydraulic Tensile Test Machines are the best choice for performing static tension applications when high force capacity is needed, such as testing metals and metal products. 600 Series test machines feature capacities between 300 kN and 2 MN (67,500 lbf and 450 kip). 600 Series test machines also perform compressive, bend, fracture, and shear tests. The standard model features large diameter columns and rugged components for superior frame stiffness and durability.
