Designed for high-capacity tension, compression, bend/flex, and shear testing, the KPX Models feature an ultra-large single test space and adjustable crosshead options. Understanding the critical importance of operator safety, these frames incorporate high-quality materials, components, and craftsmanship and are ideal for testing metals, wire, concrete, fasteners, wood, and composites.

  • Adjustable crosshead options allow the test space to be adapted to a wide range of test specimens, applications, and accessories
  • Linear guidance system maintains precise alignment of load string over the entire stroke of the actuator
  • Co-axially mounted encoder accurately measures actuator travel at the center of the load string
  • Convenient working height and ergonomic controls improve operator productivity and comfort
  • Long stroke, high-speed actuator accommodates both tension and compression testing applications
  • 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

  • 1500KPX:  1,500 kN (337,500 lbf)
  • 2000KPX:  2,000 kN (450,000 lbf)
