Our Testometric Compression/Tension machine can accommodate a wide range of components to be statically tested.
Jigs can be made to fix your items to the 1m2 test plate, with a variety of impactor shapes available.
The displacement control upper test plate can be lowered or raised with a feed rate as low as 1mm/min. Cyclic testing is also available.
Further instrumentation such as strain gauges or temperature sensors can be incorporated into the test along with video analysis.
