Instron offers a wide variety of options when it comes to torsion testing – including stand-alone torsion testing machines available in a range of force capacities, a torsion add-on for universal testing systems which allows you to convert an axial-only system into a biaxial system, and dynamic and fatigue testing machines that offer both […]


  The Instron line of CEAST Thermo-mechanical systems are used to characterize the behavior of plastic materials at high temperatures, measuring the heat deflection temperature (HDT) and the Vicat softening temperature (Vicat). These HDT and VICAT testers range from very simple units for quality control labs to more advanced and automated systems. HV3S, HV6M, HV6X […]


  The Instron line of CEAST Rheology systems are used to measure the rheological properties of thermoplastics to characterize the polymer melt flow behavior in the process conditions. This is achieved through a broad range of rheology systems – from Melt Flow Testers to Capillary Rheometers. Capillary Rheometers These bench top capillary rheometers are suitable […]


  Instron Automated Testing Systems enable a new dimension of testing productivity. These systems were designed as a solution to these common testing challenges including safety, throughput, repetitive tasks/better use of skilled operators, and variability of results. Available as either a complete turnkey solution or fitted to existing Instron testing instruments, both options are tailored […]


  Impact resistance is one of the most important properties for component designers to consider, as well as the most difficult to quantify. Impact resistance is a critical measure of service life and  it involves the perplexing problem of product safety and liability. Instron has more than 80 years experience in designing impact testing systems […]


  Instron offers comprehensive know-how in the area of servohydraulic service load simulation and component testing. Solutions offered range from simple, single-channel component test rigs to systems enabling a complex simulation of virtually all loads acting on a vehicle or structure. A modular concept allows individual test rig components to be customized and tailored to […]
