Single Column Tensile Tester / Universal Testing Machines

Single Column Materials Testing Machines include powerful and easy to use software for use in research & development and quality control applications.

Our Single Column Tensile Tester Machines are built in Germany to the highest standards and at a surprisingly affordable price when compared to Instron, Lloyds Instruments, Testometeric, Zwick Roell and Tinius Olsen, without a compromise on quality, functionality or accuracy.

We pride ourselves on providing exceptional customer service from the initial enquiry right through the life of the Tensile Tester. Our highly experienced engineers will help you select the most suitable machine, grips and fixtures, for your test needs whether you plan to only use it for one test type or 20 different ones. Extensometers can also be supplied by AML.

See our larger twin column Tensile Testers here which are 10 kN to 200 kN.

Most Tensile Testers can be delivered and installed in under 1 week.
