The TS500 is used to carry out tensile tests on 4mm - 26mm diameter steel reinforced bars and flat bars with maximum dimensions of 25mm x 1 mm. The TS500 can also be used for compression test on concrete cubes up to 150mm and cylinders with a maximum dimensions of 160mm diameter x 320mm long.

The double action loading piston, is rectified and lapped. The piston is protected from damage by a security device which limits the maximum and minimum stroke. The hydraulic selector allows the operator to choose either a tensile or a compression test. The jaw holders are manufactured from a single block of high resistance steel. The auto-clamping "V” form ensures a quick and practical location of the specimen, whilst the grip locking system ensures safe bar handling after failure.
The machine is supplied with pair of jaw-holders, but without hardened jaws and accessories for tensile and compression tests, which must be ordered separately
