Installation & Relocation

Installation of larger and more complex testing systems - whether new, relocated, or upgraded - will often require support for site preparation, physical installation, training, and traceable verification at your site.

We have designed a full range of installation and system startup services to address these needs. Physical installation, verification, and training services are often included when you purchase an Instron® system to assure successful handover to your staff and the startup of testing operations. Additional services are available to address unique installation and startup needs.

Beginning with the configuration of your Instron system, your sales engineer will work with you to discuss installation site requirements, site preparation, physical installation, calibration requirements, and necessary staff training.

Our installation and start-up team is trained and supported by factory engineering and calibration teams.

Site Preparation Guidance and Services 

  • Guidance on foundations/flooring 
  • Suitability of benches and electrical/pneumatic supply requirements 
  • Access assessment if the equipment is being placed a distance from the delivery point (e.g. door heights and corridor widths) 
For larger servohydraulic-operated testing systems requiring hydraulic supplies with specialized cooling requirements we can provide hydraulic pipe-work services and guidance on best practices to minimise environmental and energy impact. 
  • Support services and documentation to address IQOQ process requirements 
  • Guidance for the off-loading and movement of equipment 
  • Unpacking, positioning, and leveling guidance and services 
  • Services connections support 
We will work with your Site Facilities staff to connect the testing equipment to required services that may include electrical, pneumatic, hydraulic, and cooling water services for larger testing systems. 
  • Fitting and installation of accessories 
  •  Calibration 
Traceable system calibration of load cells, extensometers, and other measurement accessories is provided to support ISO and ASTM standards compliance.
