Our adapter hardware can attach Blockwise compression stations to tensile testers by Zwick, ADMET, Instron, Tinius-Olsen, and others. If we don’t have an adapter kit for your tensile tester, we will design one. These kits include top and bottom couplings and force-limiting clips to prevent accidental damage to the compression station due to excessive force. Temperature control systems are also available

Model RJU Radial force Testing Fixture

With a decade of service in radial force testing the J-Crimp™ is a proven choice. We recommend you select this model unless you need a bigger size. High precision, very low friction, no die-to-die wear, high durability.

Diameter Length Max Radial Force Die Material
0-16 mm 62 or 124 mm 660 N Hardened Stainless Steel

Model RTU Radial Force Testing Fixture

For very long or large-diameter specimens, the Twin-Cam™ compression station provides the lowest friction and best geometric accuracy in its size range. No die-to-die wear, very durable.

Diameter Length Max RF Die Material
0-30 mm 124 – 310 mm 930 N Hardened Stainless Steel

Model RLU Radial force Testing Fixture

For very large-diameter specimens, the Large Twin-Cam™ compression station provides the lowest friction and best geometric accuracy in its size range. No die-to-die wear, very durable.

Diameter Length Max Radial Force Die Material
0-60 mm 124, 248 mm 930 N Hardened Stainless Steel
