Industrial Series HDX Models from Instron

Designed for high-capacity tension, compression, bend/flex, and shear testing, the HDX Models feature a dual test space and long test stroke. Understanding the critical importance of operator safety, these frames incorporate high-quality materials, components, and craftsmanship, and are ideal for testing metals, wire, fasteners, concrete, and wood.

Features and Benefits

  • Two test space design makes changing between tension and compression testing safer and more efficient - no need to remove heavy fixtures
  • Optional open-front grip design improves operator safety and throughput, and allows a limited number of jaw faces to cover a large range of specimen sizes
  • Long test stroke accommodates a variety of test fixtures and applications, such as rebar bend tests
  • Productivity panel with multiple function keys and displays improves ergonomics, and allows the operator to perform common testing functions and view key test information without returning to the computer
  • Powerful, yet user-friendly materials testing software provides repeatable and reproducible results for simple to sophisticated testing requirements

Range of Models

  • 1000HDX - 1,000 kN (220,000 lbf)
