Tensile Tester - Horizontal or Vertical

Expert 5600 Universal Testing Systems

A bold and fexibile new approach to low force testng at an afordable price.

The eXpert 5600 series testng machines are equipped with a rigid frame and detachable electronics and top actng actuator. Several motor/drive combinatons allow for a variety of machine confguratons. The table top load frame with precision actuator and fast actng servo motor provides controllability at very light loads and rigidity for loads at machine capacity.

  • Perform tension, compression, and bend tests from less than 1N to 6.2 kN (1,400 lbf). Some models are capable of speeds in excess of 5,000 mm/min (200 in/min).
  • The standard frame assembly can be user confgured for vertcal or horizontal operaton. The actuator can be mounted on the optonal dual column frame or a frame of your own design.
  • Using optonal neoprene bellows, the actuator and electronics can be sealed from moisture and airborne partcles, allowing for mantenance free operaton in the harshest testng enviroments.

Customizable - Backed by superior engineering and a willingness to tailor a system to your testng needs

Taller, shorter, wider, faster, slower: Our engineering group will confgure a design to meet your specifcatons.

Trusted - Expertly designed, engineered and supported for life.

  • Exceeds all ASTM/ISO accuracy requirements.
  • Fastest in the industry, an 8 kHz servo loop rate ensures accurate, repeatable, and reliable testng.
  • All testng systems are supported for life.

eP2 Materials Testing Controller

A standalone presetable controller that simplifes materials and product testng. The eP2 Digital Controller performs mechanical tests on materials, products and components. It is a presetable unit that operates both electromechanical and servo hydraulic testng systems. The eP2 can also be used to retroft/upgrade virtually any manufactures testng machine regardless of age or machine type. It is a less expensive and easier to use alternatve to PC based materials testng systems and is capable of performing tests in tension, compression, bend and torsion. The eP2 features load and crosshead positon inputs plus enhanced closed loop servo control capabilites for accurate and repeatable testng. An optonal axial strain input channel can be added for accommodatng extensometry.

Combining the eP2 controller with the PC based GaugeSafe Data Exchange sofware makes it easy to create and store unlimited number of test methods; save, export and print test results including stress vs. strain curves; import results and XY data into common spreadsheet and database programs for further analysis and reportng.


  • Display load, positon, axial strain (optonal), and test rate during tests.
  • Display measured mechanical propertes at test completon.
  • Calculate key mechanical propertes such as ultmate strength, modulus, ofset yield, percent elongaton and more. Calculatons are in accordance with ASTM and ISO testng standards.
  • Upload results and XY data via the GaugeSafe Data Exchange program to a Windows based PC for viewing and reportng.
  • Store up to six test methods internally. Access unlimited number of test methods through the Gauge Safe Data Exchange sofware.
  • Specify high and low limits for each mechanical property for pass/fail indicaton.
  • Protect from inadvertent test method changes through password only accessible supervisor/operator modes.
  • Select between English, Metric and SI engineering units.
  • Specify ramp to break, ramp to hold and cyclic sawtooth and squarewave closed-loop servo control profles.
  • Perform load rate, positon rate and strain rate controlled tests.
  • Calibrate load and axial strain channels in accordance with ASTM E4 and E83 standards, respectvely. Load accuracy exceeds ASTM E4 standards down to 1/200th load cell capacity.
  • ADMET provides all calibraton passwords for streamlining maintenance costs.
