The Watts Weld Tensile Tester W50 is a destructive weld testing machine that incorporates compression, tensile, and bend testing in one complete unit. The W-50 is an invaluable asset to any training facility or commercial company that requires weld qualification. The W-50 can do all the key destructive tests as specified by AWS, ASME, and API. In addition, the unit requires very little space since the unit sits horizontally. This machine is designed so the entire test procedure can be handled by one operator quickly and easily.

Test Capabilities
