FORNEY manufactures a variety of Universal Testing machines designed to test a wide array of specimens - cement briquettes, cubes and cylinders, rebar, rebar with joints or T-Caps, and other non-cement, non-metallic materials.
Many of these machines are dual purpose - allowing testing in tension or compression.
FORNEY designs and builds these machines, assuring you of single source responsibility. All FORNEY UTM's exceed ASTM and ACI specifications for frame rigidity and are backed by FORNEY's outstanding technical support staff.
Capacities range from 20,000 to 850,000 lbf in tension. This includes rebar in the range of No. 3 up to No. 20, and rebar couplings and splices. Compression machine sizes are available from 30,000 to 1,500,000 lbf .
