For teachers wanting to go further into materials testing, we’ve got the perfect piece of equipment. The Materials Deflection Tester brings accurate measurement to testing various materials. Want to know whether laminated balsa wood bends more or less than plain balsa wood or if aluminum bends more than steel? It’s easy with this tester.
Just place the material in the clamp and on top of the metric dial indicator plunger, zero the indicator, place the desired weights on top, and read the amount of deflection on the dial. You can test materials using a point load and several support types including cantilever, fixed, simple, and roller, and you can move the weight to different areas of the materials, such as the center versus the middle.
Tests material up to 1' L x 1-1/4" W x 3/4" H with a maximum deflection of 0.78". Comes with 500 grams of masses for testing. No assembly required.
