Featured Equipment

Digital Calipers

Digital Calipers

This metric/Imperial digital caliper (15 cm or 6 inch) measures to the nearest 0.01 mm (0.0005 inch). It features automatic power down and it includes a sturdy, protective plastic case.

Steel Tensile Sample

Set of 10 steel tensile samples designed for use with the Materials Testing System.

Materials Testing Machine

Materials Testing Machine

This is the assembly-only version; measures force and displacement for various materials as the materials are stretched, compressed, sheared, or bent.

Many lab activities can be conducted with our Wireless, PASPORT, or even ScienceWorkshop sensors and equipment. For assistance with substituting compatible instruments, contact PASCO Technical Support. We're here to help.
