  • Distance pieces are used to reduce the amount of vertical clearance between the upper platen and the lower platen.
  • For lowering the minimum distance between upper and lower platens down to required height, 2000 kN, 3000 kN and 4000 kN machines are supplied with 205 mm (8,07”) dia. distance pieces and 600 kN, 1100kN and 1500 kN machines are supplied with 165 mm (6,5”) dia. distance pieces.
  • Distance pieces are equipped with handles.

  • All frames have a single acting up stroking ram.
  • The diameter of the piston is designed to work with the load capacity.
  • The maximum ram movement is 50 mm.
  • The pressure transducer is used for load measurements.
  • There is a low friction coaxial PTFE seal between the cylinder and the piston fitted to the cylinder.


  • The pedestals make it easier for the user to placement of specimens in the frames for compression test.
