AJT’s Horizontal Tensile Test Machine is a highly versatile piece of equipment that can adapt to various testing requirements, meaning it can be used across many industries and for a wide range of materials. It offers a flexible base to perform all types of tests within a single machine, making it a cost-effective option.


The modular beds can be made to any length, allowing for customisation based on the specific needs of the test. This design also means they can be extended to increase the test length at a later date if required. Plus, it makes shipping and handling the machine much easier, quicker and more affordable. 


Altering the required sample length on a test by test basis is also very quick and easy to do. The static end of the machine is adjustable by using a very simple, ergonomic system. The carriage is on rollers and secured with high tensile steel pins, which can be removed to allow the operator to easily move the carriage to a desired location point along the machine frame, before the pins are reinserted.


The machine includes essential safety features, such as manual or automated protective guards, emergency stops, and minimum load on sample, with all stresses contained within the structure of the machine. These features prioritise user safety during testing operations.


AJT have produced this machine (each one bespoke) for customers all over the world, with capacities ranging from 5 Tonnes to 3000 Tonnes thus far. We have our own in-house design team with CAD facilities so we can work together to bring your vision to fruition.


The machine can be equipped with data acquisition software, or a full PC control system, and can also be integrated with your existing data network. This facilitates real-time monitoring and data analysis, enhancing the efficiency and accuracy of testing processes. Alternatively, we can produce basic, manually controlled machines for stricter budgets.
