Universal Testing Machines are used by many industries to test the tensile and compressive strength of materials. Universal Testing Machines are aptly named, as they can perform many different varieties of tests on a wide range of materials, components, and structures, ranging from hard samples such as metals and concrete, to flexible samples such as rubber and textiles.

To analyze the strength of steel, tests are conducted by placing samples into the Universal Testing Machine and using an environmental chamber to subject metals to extreme temperatures: from -196°C (-321°F) to over 1000°C (1800°F). Qualitest’s Universal Testing Machines also feature dual spaces so users can quickly change between tension and compression testing without having to remove heavy fixtures.

Qualitest recently delivered a 2000KN Servo Hydraulic Universal Testing Machine to Setraco, a construction company in Nigeria, which will use this machine to check the quality of construction steel reinforcing bars provided by Nigerian steel suppliers. Qualitest’s Universal Testing Machine will enable Setraco to effectively control the quality of the steel bars used in essential infrastructure projects in Nigeria, such as roads and bridges.

Qualitest’s servo-hydraulic Universal Testing Machine is ideal for high-capacity tension, compression, bend/flex, and shear testing, carrying out tests in accordance with the EN, ISO, ASTM, JIS, GB, and many other international standards. This unprecedented range makes our Universal Testing Machines applicable to virtually any manufacturing industry.
