Can we help you?

Quasar kN is the product of state of the art design, built to the highest quality levels TQ01.01 and has many advanced technical features.

Programming tests and monitoring results can be controlled through our powerful and Labtest software, which allows complete and accurate data management in accordance with European, North American and International Standards.

This instrument is suitable to be used both in production lines where the operator has to be fast and efficient and can accurately control the test with the optional remote control unit and also laboratory environments where the advanced software lets users analyse the test data. Labtest allows full control of processing, filing, managing, and transmitting data to the company network, database, and performs many other functions.

This Quasar frame has a flexible and modular construction. It can be equipped with various grips and fixtures, as well as extensometers, additional load cells and many more accessories, for a wide range of applications (tensile, compression, flexure, etc.). In addition, this user-friendly instrument can be fitted with additional load cells with lower capacities, providing the highest resolution and accuracy for micro-loads.
