TestResources Inc. Shakopee, Minnesota, USA.


Universal testing machines (UTMs) stretch, bend and compress test samples at controlled test speeds or constant loading rates.

Our UTMs are used to evaluate static product and material strength properties including uniaxial tensile, compression, cyclic, shear, flexure, bend, peel, tear and material characteristics such as elongation and modulus.

TestResources’ Universal Test Machines

Our test machines are modular, which means they are easily modified for different tests. For each load frame, we offer two tiers of test controllers (basic and premium) which work with all load cell and strain sensors.

TestResources universal test machine uses a design and technology platform that can grow with your testing needs for many years to come.

Series Machine Type Test Type Series Type Maximum Force
100 Series Electromechanical Static Modular 10 kN (2,250 lbf)
200 Series Electromechanical Static Single Column 5 kN (1,125 lbf)
300 Series Electromechanical Static Tabletop & Floor 600 kN (135 kip)
600 Series Electrohydraulic Static Floor Standing 2 MN (450 kip)

Selecting a Universal Test Machines

Start by selecting the series based on the maximum force you will need. If you find that the machine test space is smaller than your largest test sample, we customize load frames with wider width column spacing or with longer columns.
