Tensile Testers

GENERAL INFORMATION

Some welding specifications, like AWS D17.2, require tensile testing sample specimens to qualify the machinery.  

A typical weld specimen is 1″ wide and 4″ long.  The overlap is typically 1″, making a welded specimen that is 6-7 inches in length.  A single weld of common material thickness typically will not exceed 5000lbsf of tensile strength.  (Exceptions of course exist).

Here are two common tensile tester options: 0-5,000lbsf tester, and 0-10,000lbsf tester.

If your specific application requires compression (or “push-out”) testing, please let us know when you are shopping.
