Instron is a global organisation that designs, manufactures, sells and services material testing systems which evaluate the mechanical properties of materials and components.

Our systems evaluate the mechanical properties of materials and structures using tensile, compression, flexural, fatigue, impact, dynamic, torsional and multi-axial loading. Instron is the market leader in crash simulation systems and are able to test car, bus, train and aeroplane parts to make sure they are safe during a crash event. They can test the thermo-mechanical properties of materials at a high temperature in case of fires or explosions.
