Instron 5900 Series Multi Station System

The Instron® 5900 Series Multi Station System offers enhanced throughput with its ability to perform simultaneous, independent tests on up to five (5) separate specimens using a single load frame. Based on our standard 5967 testing frame (30kN capacity)*, this system is especially suitable when expected test times are lengthened due to high elongation and return to gauge length or slow test speeds. If your test methods and expected results are similar for the specimens you are testing, this system is the ideal solution for cost-effective and efficient materials testing.

The pre-configured Multi Station system meets most test lab requirements for performing simultaneous tests. Depending on your workload, you can test one to five specimens at the same time. The system works seamlessly with 3 Materials Testing Software®Bluehill and has the ability show all required transducer channels on live displays.

The testing frame is offered in two pitch, load string spacing configurations to allow for various peripheral equipment. The narrow pitch is necessary when using the chamber option, offering an available horizontal spacing of 140 mm (5.5 in) and can only fit the 1 kN grips due to space constraints. The wide pitch, with available horizontal spacing of 165 mm (6.5 in), is necessary when using long travel XL extemsometers and will accommodate both the 1 and 2 kN grips.

*Note: Total capacity for all five loads; other capacities available upon request
