Our lab facililties are now equipped with an Instron Electropuls E1000 static and dynamic tension/compression testing equipment with +/-2000 N dynamic load cell. Tests can be performed and controlled based on extension, load or strain. Strain based tests are performed using an Epsilon digital extensometer. We can construct fixtures for most ASTM or ISO standard tests or for custom mechanical testing.
