LR5K Plus

(1,100 lbf or 5KN Capacity)

Spec Sheet




The LR5KPlus testing machine combines high performance, flexibility and exceptional ease of use. It is ideal for testing applications up to 5 kN (1124 lbf) and designed equally for routine quality control testing and for performing complex multi-stage tests. The machine uses high accuracy interchangeable XLC Series load cells for tension, compression and cycling through zero force measurements.


The high stiffness frame incorporates a crosshead guidance system to prevent side loading of the test sample.


With this material tester you can perform several different types of tests, among others:

  • Electronic testing
  • Rubber testing
  • Wood testing
  • Automotive testing
  • Construction materials testing
  • Packaging testing
