Universal tensile/compression machine, motorised, measuring system with fully automatic touch screen control.
This compact machine, is used to carry out tensile tests on steel reinforced bars from 6mm to 25mm diameter and flat bars up to 25mm x 15mm maximum size.

It can also be used to carry out compression tests on concrete cubes up to 150mm and cylinders up to a maximum of 160mm x 320mm.

The four column load frame assures high rigidity and stability. The double action loading piston is rectified and lapped. The piston is protected by a hydraulic maximum and minimum piston stroke’s security device, to avoiding the risk of damage due to misuse. A hydraulic selector allows the user to select either the tensile or the compression test. The heads holding the jaws are machined from a single block of high tungsten steel and the jaws are hardened to over 65 HRC. The "V” auto-clamping form allows quick and practical positioning of the specimen.

The machine is supplied complete with a pair of jaw-holders, but without accessories for tensile and compression tests,
Accessories must be purchased separately
