  • This compact machine is used to carry out tensile tests on steel reinforcement bars from 6mm to 25mm diameter and a maximum of 25mm x 15mm flat.
  • It can also carry out compression tests on concrete cubes up to 150mm and cylinders up to 160mm diameter x 320mm long.
  • The four-column loading frame is over-dimensioned to ensure high rigidity and stability.
  • The loading piston, double action, is rectified and lapped.
  • The piston has a hydraulic maximum and minimum stroke security device, which avoids the risk of damage due to incorrect operation.
  • A hydraulic selector allows selection of either the tensile or the compression test.
  • The heads holding the jaws are machined from one single block of high tungsten steel, and the jaws are hardened to 65 HRC.
  • The auto-clamping “V” form allows for quick and practical specimen location.
  • The machine is supplied complete with a pair of jaw-holders.
