5900 SERIES

Universal Testing Systems for Tensile, Compression, and Flexure Testing

5900 Series Universal Testing Machines

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.

5900 Frame Stiffness




Stiff Frames for High-Strength Materials

Pre-loaded bearings, precision ball screws, a thick crosshead and base beam, and low-stretch drive belts contribute to better performance by producing more accurate modulus and strain values and minimizing the energy stored during a test. This is especially evident when testing highstrength materials such as aerospace composites, metal alloys, and crystalline polymers.

Precision Guidance for Alignment and Bending

When performing a uniaxial test, accurate stress and strain results can only be achieved with a system that contains robust, precise guidance columns that ensure minimal specimen bending under load.

Larger Motors for Better Reliability

Reliability is built into 5900 load frames through the use of powerful motors with reserve capacity that allow for quicker rates of acceleration when starting a test and faster turnaround times when performing a cyclic test. More of your testing occurs at the required speed.

Servo-Controlled Drive System

Systems that use gear-reducers create backlash and lower drive-system stiffness, whereas the dual-belt system provides synchronous movement of the ball screws, eliminating crosshead tilt and aiding system alignment.

Productivity Panel



Productivity Panel for Real-Time Data and Results




View Real-Time Data and Results

Constantly monitor vital measurements during pretest adjustments as well as throughout the test on the 4 user-defined live displays. Additionally, real-time results are easily displayed throughout the test.

Customizable Soft Keys

With 4 user-defined ‘Soft Key’ buttons, the operator can initiate a variety of commands, allowing for customization of the panel while minimizing the numbers of buttons on the panel.

Precise Positioning

The fine position adjustment thumbwheel provides tactile feedback for 0.004 mm resolution adjustments to the crosshead when performing sensitive testing.
