    • ASTM C39

BESMAK offers advanced solutions for all varieties of bulding materials testing, including standard and static testing. Backed by more than 30 years of experience, BESMAK provides the technology and the specialized expertise labs need to perform accurate, repeatable tests that ensure materials and components meet standards. These complete solutions include:

• Highly stiff, floor-standing servo-hydraulic load frames for a range of force requirements

• Intuitive, versatile and user-friendly software with powerful test design capabilities

• Digital controllers with high channel density, high capacity and superior configurability

• Rugged, high-performance grips and fixtures


A compression test determines behavior of materials under crushing loads. The specimen is compressed and deformation at various loads is recorded. BESMAK can provide and offer a lot of options for users such as 4-Column and Wall Type Frame Structures, Fully and Semi Automatic, Membrane and Touch Screen concrete compression machines.

While manufacturing machines compliant to standards, BESMAK carries out a number of research and development studies and makes innovations that revolutionize compression machines. Sematron Touch Series Control and Software System, which is fully developed in-house, is capable of high speed data display with 1 kHz data acquisition speed, and reading of different sensors like LVDT, strain gauge, load cell and pressure transducers. Thanks to multiple channel, the controller unit allows to attach different frames with single hydraulic power pack.

With industrial 10 inch LCD display and user-friendly BESMAK Universal Testing Software, users can view the real time graphs and analyze the data point by point, make and save their own test templates, create their own test methods, email results directly from LCD, use the machine in their own language and get online support from BESMAK team.

• Available in different capacities (from 2000 kN to 10000 kN)

• Complies to EN 12390-4, ASTM C39 for testing hardened concrete

• Any compression and bending frame can be connected to the same machine


• Rigid load frame in 4-column construction

• The columns are screwed free from play to the machine’s upper and lower blocks

• Suitable for testing 150 x 150 x 150, 200 × 200 × 200 mm cube and 150 × 300, 160 × 320 mm cylinder samples (other dimensions are available upon request)

• Upper platen spherically seated to allow an inclination up to 3° for homogenous loading

• Given with corrosion-resistant distance platens for different size samples (30 mm, 50 mm, 70 mm, 80 mm)

• All transmission surfaces are additionally plane – parallel – treated and fine machined

• Lower platen marked to allow centering of both cubes and cylinders

• Safety door switch for secure operations

• Piston limit switch for secure operations

• At the end of the test process to start a new test the piston returns to the default position
