SqueezerPro fixed compression platen configuration

The SqueezerPro compression tester features precision-aligned specimen platforms, also known as compression platens, ensuring accurate test results and instilling confidence in the reliability of your testing outcomes.

These platforms can be configured as either fixed or floating, providing versatility to accommodate different testing requirements and materials. This flexibility allows users to adapt the testing setup according to specific needs, further enhancing the precision and relevance of the results obtained.

Whether fixed or floating, the precision alignment of the specimen platforms guarantees consistency and accuracy in testing, reinforcing the trustworthiness of the obtained data for informed decision-making processes.


Intuitive touch-enabled force testing software - VectorPro
VectorPro test reports

VectorPro at the heart of compression testing

VectorPro delivers outstanding system control, whilst simultaneous collecting and graphing data from the loadcell and displacement encoder of the test frame.

The software is intuitive for both operators and managers. Personalised user accounts and a streamlined design mean that the workflow is simple and it is easy to create step-by-step test methods according to the precise requirements of your testing procedures.

Access to the most commonly used test methods enables operators to move seamlessly from task to task and keeps training time to a minimum.

Preset or custom calculations analyse the data to determine whether the specimen has met the pass/fail criteria. it is possible to create custom calculations within a few seconds by using the drag-and-drop functions.

At the end of the test, the comprehensive reporting module within VectorPro enables the operator to issue a test report as a PDF.

An extensive range of template reports can be easily tailored to your internal or your customer's exact requirements. Test data can be exported to Excel or to the network for further analysis.

VectorPro generates a clear audit trail with electronic signature functionality - a must for customers in industries that require compliance to FDA 21 CFR Part 11.
