Fully Automatic Concrete Compression Testing Machine

The rigidity of a testing machine unit is a serious consideration when performing concrete compression and rock compression tests. The Shimadzu lineup includes general-purpose fully automatic concrete compression testing machines (the CONCRETO series) to accommodate ultra-high strength concrete, and high-rigidity compression testing machines with an integrated structure by hollowing out an ultra-thick steel plate for the loading unit frame.

  • JIS B 7721: Tension/compression testing machines (class 1)
  • JIS A 1108: Test method for compressive strength of concrete
  • JIS A 1106: Test method for flexural strength of concrete (optional)
  • JIS A 1113: Test method for splitting tensile strength of concrete (optional)

Not Explosion-Proofed

Explosion-Proofed

After Implementing Tests of Ultra-High Strength Concrete (130 N/mm2) (Dia. 100 x H 200 mm Sample)

An explosion-proof function is essential in order to safely test high strength concrete with a compression testing machine. This machine is equipped as standard with a highly rigid loading unit to accommodate ultra-high strength concrete, and a high-sensitivity rupture detection function.

5000 kN High-Rigidity Compression Testing Machine

This high-rigidity compression testing machine features an integrated structure by hollowing out an ultra-thick steel plate for the loading unit frame. It is equipped with a load (displacement) control function suited to strength evaluations of high strength concrete and rocks, and can prevent explosions during compression.
