ARA’s 120,000 Lb. capacity tension
ARA’s tension and compression tester can load almost any object to failure. By utilizing small load cells, ARA can test small or weaker components, like fabrics and other materials.
Testing of chains and welded joints with either larger load cells or the built in calibrated scale can also be performed. The large surface area on the base of the machine is capable of fitting larger items, such as mechanical and automotive components, to determine compression resistance or tensile failure.
ARA is also capable of fabricating custom apparatuses to load or fail abnormally shaped materials
