Traction testing machine / compression
max. 600 kN | LX Model Instron


  • Test type:

    compression, traction


The LX models are designed for high capacity tension, compression, bend/flex, and shear testing. It features a broad, single test space, and footprints that ensures operator safety. The single footprint design also combines the load frame, hydraulic power supply, and other various panels into a single package. The latter aids in reducing space requirements up to 60%. Digital electronics also provide high accuracy and quick response. Its integrated controller automatically recognizes and calibrates transducers, pots, and dials. The model is suited for tensile proof and strength tests applied on fasteners, chain, threaded and shoulder end specimens, and wire rod. Model ranges has a force measurement from 150kN up to 600kN.
