Tensile and compression test

With our test system, property values on test specimens in form of mechanical stress are determined by a swift, static, swelling or alternating course by means of an electromechanical drive.

The specimens are loaded by the test values force, torque or deformation with defined value, time sequence and defined frequency. The classic test types are tensile, compression and bending tests based on various test standards.

With our tensile and compression tests, we offer strength and component tests in the load range up to a maximum of 5 kN. Clamping tools and testing equipment are available for the following tests:

  • Static and dynamic tensile tests
  • Static and dynamic compression tests
  • bending tests
