This page list Instron’s Dynamic and Fatigue testing products that are no longer in current production and includes models dating back to 1973. Instron has a very proud history over many decades of being one of the premier suppliers of materials testing equipment to academia, research institutes and Industry. A fundamental feature of that success is the comprehensive level of on-going technical and replacement part support for these products during their life cycle. However, as a manufacturer of complex and highly technical products, Instron recognises when the products are superseded by later models, parts availability can become a challenge that diminishes our ability to maintain full support for our older models indefinitely. You can use the tables below to find your frame, controller or software and if any possible retrofits or upgrades are available.
