Designed for high-capacity tension, compression, bend/flex, and shear testing, the HDX Models feature a dual test space and long test stroke. Understanding the critical importance of operator safety, these frames incorporate high-quality materials, components, and craftsmanship, and are ideal for testing metals, wire, fasteners, concrete, and wood.

Features and Benefits
  • Two test space design makes changing between tension and compression testing safer and more efficient - no need to remove heavy fixtures
  • Fully open-front grip design improves operator safety and throughput, and allows a limited number of jaw faces to cover a large range of specimen sizes
  • Long test stroke accommodates a variety of test fixtures and applications, such as rebar bend tests
  • Ergonomic handset with a fine position adjustment wheel, two programmable softkeys, start, stop and return functions, and variable speed jog
  • Powerful, yet user-friendly materials testing software provides repeatable and reproducible results for simple to sophisticated testing requirements
  • Variable pressure hydraulic power supply provides pressure on demand, reducing heat generation, increasing oil life, and eliminating the need for water cooling
  • Optional closed head grip design available

  • 1000HDX - 1,000 kN (220,000 lbf)

Typical Application
  • Metals - Bar, Plate, Pipe & Tube, Rebar, Structural
