Universal Testing Machines

Manufacturer:  Instron GmbHShimadzu Deutschland GmbH
Type:  Instron 4469Shimadzu EZ Test

Universal testing machines are used to perform force-displacement measurements to determine material or component characteristics.
Depending on the tools and devices used, tensile, compression, bending, peeling, shear tests and many other tests can be performed. The tests can be carried out according to various testing standards.

Different force measuring ranges and test speeds are available for the investigations, depending on the testing machine used.

Force Measuring Ranges:
•  Up to 500 N
•  2 kN
•  5 kN
•  30 kN
•  50 kN
Testing Speeds: 0.01 to 1000 mm/min

For measurements below or above room temperature, a cooling and heating temperature chamber is mounted. This allows analyses to be carried out in a wide temperature range from approx. -170 °C to 250 °C.

In addition to standardized testing and clamping tools such as 3-point bending tools, disc tools and mechanical collets, there are also collet chuck for ropes, pneumatic collets and various shearing and peeling devices available. For special testing tasks, appropriate fixtures are designed and manufactured by the in-house workshop.

Please do not hesitate to contact us for questions and further information about our R&D and services offered.
