Code: BCO-FC

  • Standards:

    • EN 12390-5

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


The flexure test measures the mechanical properties of materials when subjected to bending load. A flat rectangular specimen is loaded at three or four points. BESMAK can provide and offer a lot of options for users test frames and test options. There are two types test solution in available as BCO-FC Series Full Automatic Sematron Touch Controlled Servo-Hydraulic Flexural Test Machine (Column Type) or BCO-FO Series Full Automatic Sematron Touch Controlled Servo-Hydraulic Flexural Test Machine (C Type)

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.
