5900 Systems - Confidence in Your Results
The 5900 Series Universal Testing Instruments offer exceptional performance and are designed with enhancements that deliver unparalleled accuracy and reliability, improved ergonomics, and an enhanced overall experience for the operator. New industry leading features include load measurement accuracy to +/-0.5% of reading down to 1/1000 of load cell capacity and fast, synchronized data acquisition rates up to 2,500 points per second. The most common uses of these mechanical testing systems are for tensile, compression, bend, peel, shear, tear and cyclic tests. Configured systems are fully capable of meeting test requirements per ASTM, ISO, DIN, TAPPI, GB, JIS, ANSI, NAS, etc.

Frame types include the 5940 single column tabletop for low-force testing up to 2 kN; the 5960 dual column tabletop systems for mid-range testing up to 50 kN; and the 5980 floor model systems for heavy- duty, robust testing up to 600 kN. The control panel is an integral component of the testing system, decreasing set up time and increasing testing efficiency through the use of programmable live displays and soft keys. Tests can be set up and run directly from the control panel.

Instron® testing instruments are routinely found in applications and industries, such as plastics, metals, composites, elastomers, components, textiles, aerospace, automotive, and biomedical.
