Simpler, Smarter, Safer


Simpler HV3S

Comfortable Handling of the Testing Stations

The smooth lifting mechanism of the stations, combined with the ergonomic position of the handle, allows the user of the HV3S to raise and lower the stations safely and easily.

Simpler HV6M

Intuitive Weight Application

The intuitive design of weights eliminates the risk of selection mistakes. The weights are stackable and enable the user to handle them with confidence. A wide range of stress values can be achieved without the need for any additional tools.

Sinpler HV3S 2

Touch Screen Interface

The user-friendly touch screen has a simple and clean look and allows for operation without a computer. The workflow is intuitive and offers a seamless interaction with the system for a quick test setup and data export. The pre-formatted templates enable test run in a few simple touches.

Simpler Bluehill HV

Effortless Workflow

The optional Bluehill HV Software enhances the ease of use. The user can run tests, edit methods, analyze results or configure the system with a few clicks. The
simplicity of the software allows the user to run tests with minimal effort increasing the laboratory efficiency and throughput.

Oil degradation control

Oil degradation control. The system constantly monitors the oil, alerts when the bath level is out of range and reports when oil degradation that could adversely affect test results has occurred. This feature helps reduce the risk of running invalid test and increases productivity. It's a perfect solution to maintain recommended oil bath conditions and extend the life of the machine.

HV Cooling

Efficient Cooling

The HV Series is designed for superior cooling efficiency, rapidly returning the oil to the starting temperature after a test run. This allows the user to begin the next test with minimal wait time and reduces water consumption costs.

HV Electronic

Advanced Electronic Technology

The advanced electronics on the HV Series automatically zero the position of the LVDT measuring sensors before starting a test, reducing test time and human errors. Correction factors are calculated and applied to compensate for the thermal expansion at each station ensuring accurate results.

HV3 Small Foot Print

Small Footprint

As a result of increasingly limited space in laboratories, equipment is often squeezed into tight spaces, creating crowded and less functional laboratories. The HV Series compact design helps maximize valuable laboratory space resulting in enhanced testing efficiency.

Service Calibration

Superior Results and Repeatability

Factory trained engineers provide comprehensive verifications, checking the dimensions of critical components and temperature behavior, to assure results are accurate and repeatable. The verification certificates provide full traceability, providing confidence in the laboratory's results.

Secured Test Access

Bluehill HV Software secures the test methods, preventing inadvertent changes, to ensure repeatability and standards conpliance, over multiple shifts and numerous operators. The software suite allows for creation of specific user profiles based on the operator's level of expertise. Bluehill HV is tailored to simplify the testing process and ensure data integrity.

HV Temperature Icon

Maximum Temperature Control

The HV Series has a built-in temperature control system which limits the maximum temperature allowed for the oil bath. This helps conform to the specifications of each oil type, and prevents improper temperature settings that can generate dangerous fumes and inaccurate test results.

HV Training Icon

Effective Training Program

Instron engineers offer comprehensive on-site training courses to minimize operator's exposure to risk, improve efficiensy, optimize the system's capabilities and to support the laboratory's health and safety policies to enhance the ownership experience.

HV6X Full Shield

Protection of the Test Area

The full shield on the HV6X model restricts access during test execution, protecting the user from moving parts. It is the ideal solution for open access workplaces, where many testing instruments are simultaneously in use and a risk of test interruption exists.
