Get the Most Affordable Torsion Test Machines
Choose from 7 different frame styles with 100's of configurations
Choose from a wide range of torsion capacities with 7 frame styles and 100's of configurations which allows you to optimize your testing capabilities and pick exactly what you need. Our extensive product line of torsion test machines gives you the options you need. Each torsion testing machine configuration includes your choice of a test controller, easy setup test software, test table with rotary actuator or motor, power source, torsion test fixtures, and torque and angular position sensors. Which means you get the exact system that matches the specifications you need and fits within your budget.
Torque test machines measure the torsional strength, stiffness and stress-strain properties of materials and products which are the ideal solution for biomedical, automotive, and aerospace applications. Torsional testing machines are used to simulate real life service conditions and to check product quality for products such as drill tool bit tips and medical devices, screws and other fasteners, wire, and much more. Get started by deciding if you need a static system or a dynamic fatigue system.

Start by Selecting a Series
Learn more about each series so you can make the right decision.
Type: Electromechanical Gear
Torque Capacity: 2 to 5650 Nm (18 to 50,000 in-lb)
The 160 Series Electromechanical Torsion Test Machines are best for static and quasistatic cyclic tests. As an affordable option to torsion testing, we find the 160 Series to be a popular choice.
Type: Electrodynamic Direct Drive
Torque Capacity: 1 to 200 Nm (9 to 1770 in-lb)
560 Series Electrodynamic Torsion Test Machines include high speed motors and actuators that are capable of performing static, dynamic and fatigue testing applications. The 560 Series is capable of more sophisticated dynamic fatigue applications for users with fatigue-life testing requirements.
What is the price of a torsion testing machine?
In 2020, the price of a torsion test machine starts at $16,900. The 3 main factors that affect the cost of a torsion tester are torsional load, test space and controller, with torsional load capacity having the most impact.
Low torque (up to 1 Nm to 100 Nm (9 in-lb to 885 in-lb) max torsional load) torsion test machines range in price from $16,900 to $20,500.
Moderate Torque (up to 300 Nm to 1500 Nm (2655 in-lb to 13275 in-lb) max torsional load) torsion test machines price starts at $23,500.
What is the price of a high speed and fatigue rated torsion test machine?
High speed and fatigue rated torsion test machines varies in price depending on the application requirements.
