Universal Testing Machines

Servo Hydraulic universal machines, single and double test space Suitable for multiple testing applications, universal testing machines are able to perform tensile and compressive testing. Accessories support other tests such as CBR and flexural tests in selected models.

All system are automatic and supplied with suitable control systems and hydraulic or motor stages.

A system will typically include platens suitable for compressive testing of specimens appropriate to the maximum load of the machine and a set of jaws for holding tensile tests samples.

Servo Hydraulic Universal Testing Machines

Computer controlled servo hydraulic universal testing machines are suitable to test various metallic and non-metallic materials and can carry out tension, compression, flexural and bending tests.


  • Closed Loop Servo controlled power packs
  • Standard models offer dual test spaces for compression and tension testing.
  • UTEST-S Series Universal Testing Machines are high capacity systems with a single test space, the jaws may be fitted with compression platens or bending apparatus as required.
  • On all models a load cell is used for load measurement. Strain measurements are done by the electronic displacement transducers built in the machine.
  • Displacement or strain measurement can also be via an external extensometer fitted to the specimen.
  • Rigid 4 column construction
  • Supports load or displacement control

Accessories include: Multifunction Remote Control, Automatic Extensometer, Flexural Assembly, Compression Test Platens, High Temperature Cabinet
