Get the Highest Value Universal Test Machines
Choose from 10 different frames with 100's of configurations
Choose from 10 different frames with 100’s of configurations which allows you to optimize your testing capabilities and pick exactly what you need. While other companies only have 2 or 3 frames to choose from, our extensive product line of universal test machines gives you the options you have been craving for.
That means you get the exact system that matches the specifications you need and fits within your budget. More choices mean fewer compromises.
|Series||Maximum Force||Ideal Applications||Relative Price|
|100 Series||9 kN (2,000 lbf)||Low force tension and compression tests, bend, flexure, peel, shear, stress relaxation, and creep tests||$|
|200 Series||5 kN (1,125 lbf)||Elastomer testing, high deflection tests, rubber testing, peel, static, tension, compression, bend, flexure, shear, stress relaxation, and creep tests||$$|
|300 Series||500 kN (112 kip)||Static tension and/or compression applications which require higher forces, higher speeds or increased test space, plastic tests. Mechanical tests including tensile, compressive, bend, bond, flexural, fracture, peel, shear, tear, stress relaxation, and short term creep tests||$$$|
|600 Series||2 MN (450 kip)||Testing metals (bar, plate, pipe, tube, rebar, structural), wire (rod and strand), fasteners, concrete (cubes, cylinders, beams), wood||$$$|
Each series of test machines are modular, which means they are easily modified for different tests. If you find that the machine test space is smaller than your largest test sample, we will get you load frames with wider width column spacing or with longer columns. Each system can be application engineered to perform uniaxial tensile, compression, cyclic, shear, flexure, bend, peel, tear and material characteristics tests such as elongation and modulus.

Force: 9 kN (2,000 lbf)
100 Series Electromechanical Universal 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 Universal 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: 500 kN (112 kip)
As our most popular test machines, the 300 Series Electromechanical Universal Test Machines are the best choice for performing static compression applications at forces between 1 kN and 500 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 Universal 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.
