High-Capacity Universal Testing Systems for Tensile, Compression, and Flexure Testing
The Industrial Series is comprised of high-capacity, hydraulic testing systems for tension, compression, and flexural applications. Ranging from 600 kN (135,000 lbf) to 2,000 kN (450,000 lbf), standard models feature large diameter columns and rugged components for superior frame stiffness and durability. Understanding the critical importance of operator safety, these models incorporate high-quality materials, components, and craftsmanship. Custom designs are also available in higher capacities or unique configurations such as compression-only frames.

The Next Generation in Materials Testing Software
Bluehill Universal is built from the ground up for touch interaction. The Operator Dashboard features large touchpoints to make the user experience simpler and smarter. Easy-to-understand icons and workflows make it easy to train new or experienced users, simplify operator training, and allow you to start testing even faster than ever before.
System controls are now closer than ever before with an all-new ergonomic handset, mounted directly to the frame. Operators can use the handset in the mounted position or removed from its dock.
With 2 user-defined ‘Soft Key’ buttons, the operator can initiate a variety of commands. The Soft Keys can be defined per method, allowing for customization for each test.
The Fine Position adjustment thumbwheel with tactile feedback allows for precision positioning of the crosshead in 4 μm increments when performing sensitive testing.
Specimen Protect prevents unwanted forces from being applied to the specimen by automatically making fine adjustments to the crosshead, protecting your valuable specimen from damage.
Grips, Fixtures, and Instrumentation
Industrial Series systems can be extended with various accessories to meet the changing needs of your laboratory. Standard accessories may be fit to your system to perform common materials tests including tensile, compression, bend/flex, and shear. Customized fixtures are also available for specialized testing applications.View Accessories
