Dual column tabletop universal testing system available

A dual column tabletop testing system is now available at IMDEA Materials Institute. The system (INSTRON 5966, INSTRON) has 10 kN of capacity and 1756 mm of vertical test space. This equipment is a universal, static testing system that performs tensile and compression testing; and also perform shear, flexure, peel, tear, cyclic and bend tests at ambient and non-ambient temperatures. Dual column systems are multi-purpose instruments that are commonly used for testing in plastics, metals, rubber materials, automotive components and composites.
