The Automax ULTIMATE is CONTROLS’ latest Automatic Computerized Control Console for testing concrete, cement and steel rebar. Its modular design means that users can start using the Ultimate to perform basic failure tests to advanced displacement-controlled tests, and by simply adding extra modules, expand its testing capabilities to advanced displacement-controlled tests for Fiber Reinforced Concrete characterization.

Automax ULTIMATE has been designed with three key concepts in mind: versatility, testing capabilities and ergonomic design.

  • Versatile, it can connect up to four testing frames, from 15kN to 5000kN, allowing operators to test any kind of material and sample dimensions.
  • Ergonomic, users can easily adjust its height and move the machine to their desired location ensuring that you work in a comfortable work environment and make the most of your lab’s space. The machine is flexible, allowing each operator to adjust it individually in a few simple steps.
  • Efficient and advanced, this new console can perform the widest range of tests, from basic failure tests (compression, flexure, splitting, tension) through to cyclic tests for Elastic Modulus and Poisson’s Ratio determination and up to advanced displacement controlled tests on Fiber Reinforced Concrete (FRC).
