What is Tensile Testing?
Tensile testing is a key part of basic materials characterization. This video discusses the equipment used when performing a tension test and explains why this testing is important.
Tensile Grip Guide
In this video, we discuss some of the key differentiators between the major tensile grip types, including manual versus powered and side action versus wedge. We cover how they work and their suitability in various testing scenarios, in addition to some recommendations for better throughput and efficiency.
Instron® AT3 | Configured for Tensile Testing
The AT3 automated testing system utilizes an innovative, three axis design for automatic tensile testing of plastics and other lightweight materials. With a smaller footprint than the AT6 robotic system, the AT3 provides a simple and compact solution while still maintaining high throughput and accuracy.
High Volume Hot Tensile Testing | Dual Furnace Setup on 68FM-100
Instron's® 6800 Series floor model, equipped with a dual-furnace configuration, offers an exceptional solution for hot tensile testing to meet ASTM E21 and ISO 6892-2 standards. The ability to temperature soak a secondary load string while the primary test is in progress ensures that you can double throughput and save time. Additionally, the quick-change adapters make it convenient to switch between furnaces when testing is underway. Once a test is complete, simply swing out the furnace with the tested specimen and replace it with an untested one.
