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.

Four-Point Bending Accessory

Four-point Load Anvil

Combine the anvil with the Bending Accessory and perform both three-point and four-point bending on the Materials Testing System.

Bending Accessory

Perform three-point bending tests of various metals.

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.

Flat Structures Members

Flat members provide lateral support in bridges and can be used to build flexible buildings.

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.
