±100 kN, ±1000 Nm / ±250 kN, ±2000 Nm
The Instron 8850 series system is a floor model biaxial servohydraulic dynamic test system that provides axial and torsional load on the specimen in an integrated biaxial actuator. With a precision aligned, high-stiffness twin-column frame, the 8850 series meets the challenging demands of a varied range of both static and dynamic biaxial testing requirements. Instron provides a wide range of high capacity axial-torsional accessories and custom options to suit your testing needs. Many components of the frame can be configured to aid convenience and requirements according to your applications. Our dedicated project engineers will assist in every step of the purchasing process from configuring your machine to delivery, installation and system handover. The 8850 series combined with advanced features of a two-axis 8800MT digital controller and an axial-torsional fatigue-rated Dynacell™ enable Instron to supply fully integrated turnkey solutions to meet the most demanding applications.

Controller and Software
The Instron 8850 series is supplied with a two-axis 8800MT digital controller, which comes with Console software to provide full system control from the PC, including waveform generation in both axes, calibration, limit set up, and status monitoring. The 8800MT controller also enables the use of WaveMatrix 2 block loading software for simple and advanced axial-torsion dynamic tests on materials or components, and Bluehill Universal software for static tests.
