The price of a materials tester or a force measurement machine
varies for different reasons.
When purchasing a materials tester or a force measurement machine, you need the right set of grips
that will match your exact testing needs. In some cases, a standard grip is sufficient for your testing, but in other cases you might need a custom set of grips that fit the size, shape and material you need to test. The price of standard grips and custom grips varies a lot.
After deciding which grips suit your material best, you need to consider the type of test
you would like to be able to perform. You can perform different types of tests on a materials tester and most of our machines have a built-in data analysis software
offering you access to a library containing a number of pre-defined test set-ups for test methods that meet the international standards within tensile testing
, compression testing
and other common test types
. If you need to perform custom tests then you would need the optional NEXYGENPlus software
which would be an additional cost to your materials testing solution.
We recommend that you read the article What to Consider When Buying a Materials Tester
before you decide which materials tester to purchase.
