Introduction to Instron® Universal Testing Machines
Instron universal testing machines are designed to perform tensile, compression, flex, peel, puncture, friction, and shear tests and more. This video provides a basic introduction to using an Instron universal testing machine. You will learn the basic parts of the testing system, how to power on the machine, and the primary safety features of the equipment.
Specimen Protect: 6800 and 5900 Series Universal Testing Systems
Specimen Protect is a feature of Instron® 6800 and 5900 Series universal testing systems and system retrofits that limits unwanted forces applied to the specimen during loading. When Specimen Protect is enabled, the actuator or crosshead moves automatically to ensure the force on the specimen remains within the pre-set bounds. It is often used to protect specimens or components during set-up, prior to setting operational limits.
What Is a Universal Testing Machine/Tensile Testing Machine?
From product design and development to quality control, universal testing machines are crucial to ensuring that materials and products perform as expected. This video provides an introduction to universal testing machines, explains the most basic types of materials testing performed on these systems, and discusses the important role they play in keeping us safe.
