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

Extensometer Options

ExtensometerDifferent types of extensometers with accuracy of up to ±0.1 % of the indicated value are available depending on requirements. Extensometers separate to grips or platens can directly measure deformation of specimens. 

All systems can directly interface with an external extensometer, some systems also support the use of video extensometers.


Testing SoftwareTest software provides fully customized parameter definition, test method development tools, automatic test control, data collection, results analysis, and reporting. 

Data collected may include client details, test type, specimen type and user info. The user can prepare his own report or export to Microsoft Excel. This flexible software solution supports multiple testing technologies and test types. 

Advanced templates for testing to standards for tension testing, compression testing, flexure testing, and more across a wide variety of materials and applications help ensure quick and efficient test setup and execution. Up to 500 test methods can be managed at the same time.

Software Features

  • Foreign language support and customizable user Interface
  • Capability to save 24 test results of different specimens in one test record
  • Graphical data on the screen is refreshed simultaneously during test procedure
  • Able to save frequently used text snippets in memory and recall them when necessary
