Code: BCO-FCO / Long Sample

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 between hardened platens and the deformation at various loads is recorded.

The flexural test measures the mechanical properties of materials when subjected to bending load. A flat rectangular specimen is loaded at 3 or 4 points. Test speed and specimen dimensions are determined by ASTM and ISO standards.

BCO-FCO / Long Sample Series Fully Automatic Hydraulic Combined Compression and Flexture Test Machine is a new design, compact, ergonomic and space saving test solution to perform compression and flexture test in a single machine.


BCO-FCO / Long Sample series compression and bending test machines comes with

• Rigid column and C-type frame

• Hydraulic unit

• 2 channel electronic controller

• Linux based 10 inch industrial LCD display with built in test software

• PC software

• Software user manual

• Available in different capacities between 50 – 1000 kN

• Complies to EN 12390-5 flexture testing for hardened concrete

• More than 1 compression and bending frame can be connected to the same machine


• Rigid load frame in 4-column, C-type construction 

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

• Suitable for testing long sample concrete beams, kerbs, interlocking pavers, flagstones and blocks of different size.

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

• T-Sloted Lower platen marked to allow distance of rollers interval.

• Rod type limit switch attached to piston for secure operations

• Single-acting-Spring Return or double acting type pistons machined from the solid metal for high stability

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

Load measurement and control

• Load measurement and control is carried out with a pressure sensor with a sensitivity of class 1 or better according to EN-ISO-7500-1 standard, starting from 1% of the capacity.

Hydraulic unit

• Advanced hydraulic unit with multi-piston hydraulic pump driven by electrical motor, smooth and high flow rate, fast piston approach, with manifold and pressure limit valve, oil tank, comes with necessary joints

Control Unit and Display

• Fully automatic flexural test machine with close-loop “Sematron Touch Series” advanced controller

• Controller has 1000 Hz (1 kHz) data acquisition-processing and automatic calibration feature (2,5 kHz option is available)

• Controller has 2 channels but can be extendable up to 8 channels

• Automatic user-defined pace rate adjustment with high accuracy

• Users can hold the load at any desired point for a specific time

• Linux based 10 inch LCD touch screen with built-in test software

• Fast response real-time graphic display
