Instron Mechanical Test Machines (Hydraulic)

Two Test Frames:

  1. 100 kN
  2. 250 kN
  • Vee Jaw faces 6.1 – 26.2 mm diameter for gripping round specimens.
  • Vee Jaw faces 50 mm wide (100 kN) for gripping specimens 0 – 7.8 mm thick (For flat specimens)
  • Vee Jaw faces 100 mm wide (250 kN) for gripping specimens 0 – 6.4 mm thick (For flat specimens)

Both load frames are fully computerized:

  1. Built in high-speed interface.
  2. Advanced sensor technology provides 19 bit data resolution across complete span of the sensor.
  3. Transducer signal provides high accuracy.
