Universal Testing Systems include electromechanical series and industrial series to perform static testing, including tensile and compression applications.
Electromechanical testing systems are most commonly used for static testing in a tensile or compression mode within a single frame. Capacities for these systems range from low-load forces of 0.5 kN (112 lbf) up to high-capacity 600 kN (135,000 lbf) test frames.
Static Hydraulic Industrial Series
The Industrial Series is comprised of high-capacity, hydraulic testing systems for tension and compression applications, ranging from 300 kN (67,500 lbf) to 2,000 kN (450,000 lbf).
Custom Universal Testing Machines
For those testing applications that require more than a standard frame offers, our Engineered Solutions Group is available to design specialized systems to fit your needs – including taller or wider frames, custom safety features, high-speed frames, automation/robotics, and more.
EXTEND™ System Upgrades
Instron EXTEND System Upgrades extend the life of a testing system by replacing at risk components and enabling the use of Instron’s latest software and accessories. Available for both electromechanical and static hydraulic systems.
