LS1 Material Testing System

The LS1 is a 1 kN / 225 lbf high precision material testing machine that combined with our extensive range of grips, fixtures, extensometers and NexygenPlus software creates a powerful material testing system. The system is equally suited to quality control, educational and R&D environments within a wide range of applications and test types, including medical devices, plastics, packaging, textiles, rubber and electronics to name a few.

| Features

  • Tensile Testing, compression testing, flexural testing, friction, insertion/extraction, peeling, tearing, creep/relaxation force
  • Optional extensometers: contacting (250 to 800 mm travel), non-contacting video, and high resolution (10 to 80 mm travel)
  • Large sample testing of up to 78.7 x 78.7 inches with optional pogo system. 
  • An extensive built-in library of test methods covering ASTM, DIN, EN, ISO and other standards
  • Test wizards for tension, compression, tearing, peeling, friction and flexural tests
  • The User Configurable Test facility, ideal for product and component testing, R&D use and specialized testing.
