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.
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.
