Universal Testing Machine

A Universal Testing Machine is used to test the tensile and compressive properties of materials. Such machines generally have two columns but single column types are also available. Load cells and extensometers measure the key parameters of force and deformation as the sample is tested. These machines are widely used and would be found in any materials testing laboratory.
