Protecting Your Investment
Reduce damage to equipment and delicate specimens by stopping the crosshead if force is detected upon return or during a jog.
The 3400 Series systems automatically stop when the load cell reaches maximum capacity to prevent damage to the load cell, system, and accessories.
Powered by maintenance-free brushless AC servomotors, the 3400 Series is designed for longevity. All Instron electromechanical systems are equipped with guidance columns in addition to preloaded ballscrews for increased robustness.
