Universal Strength Machine VUN


  • 1.1 General information

    Universal Strength machine is equipped with a hydraulic loading mechanism and dial indicator which is measure the strength reading. It can measure compression strength of an AFS (Dia. 2”X2”) or Metric (Dia. 50mmX50mm) Specimen.

    With Help of attachment it can also measure

    • High Compression Strength (Refer 4.2.1)
    • Shear Strength (Refer 4.2.2)
    • Splitting Strength (Refer 4.2.3).
    • Tensile Strength (Refer 4.2.4).
    • Transverse Strength (Refer 4.2.5).
    • Twin Transverse Strength (Refer 4.2.6).
    • Deformation (Refer 4.2.7).
  • 1.2 General Usage

    Keep the specimen in between compression pads or accessory, start the test cycle & get the various type of strength reading.
