Universal testing machines determine the mechanical properties of metals, plastics, and composites. The Super "L" UTM is a hydraulic machine with testing capacities from 12,000 to 600,000 lb/ft and higher, and the S-Series benchtop UTM determines tension, compression, shear and flexural strength, and other properties. Bulletin 115-G explains testing functions, capacities, and other features and includes a photograph of each machine.
