Forney Machines

Forney 60 Series Universal Testing Machine with Automatic (VFD) Controls

Designed and built by Forney. The LT-60 Series Universal Testing Machines are specifically designed for testing a variety of materials in tension, compression and flexure – including cementitious and metallic materials like briquettes, cubes, cylinders, rebar, rebar with joints or T-Caps, and bolts, as well as other non-cementitious and non-metallic materials. Universal Testing Machines measure Force, Displacement, Velocity and Strain.
