Low-Force Testing Systems

Mid-Range Testing Systems

Single Column Testing Systems

For low force applications, the 6800 single column series provides up to 5 kN capacity available in standard and extra height options.

Instron® systems are routinely found in industries that require the testing of plastics, metals, elastomers and packaging. Some of our key applications can be found in the biomedical, automotive, electronics, and raw materials industries.

The 6800 Series universal testing machines are designed to perform tensile, compression, flex, peel, puncture, friction, shear tests, and more. The systems are compatible with hundreds of grips and fixtures found in Instron’s expansive accessories catalog, with specific configurations designed to perform many of the most popular ASTM and ISO tests.
