Add Torsion

Simple twist-thrust biaxial tests help evaluate the mechanical performance of tubes, screws, connectors, wires and bottles. TestResources solves these applications in multiple ways that depend on the timing of your torsion add-on. Our systems are inherently modular and flexible which allows you to add the torsion channel upfront or in the field in a short amount of time.
