The HCM-1000 has been custom-configured to be used for mortar applications like 2″ and 4″ cubes, beams and other low-strength materials, below 100,000 lbs. (445kN). These machines are based on HCM-2500 frames, which have been reconfigured for accurate readings of lower-strength materials. The machines are sold without platens, so be sure to order the appropriate set for your applications.
Vertical Opening – 19.375″ (492mm)
Horizontal Opening – 9.25″ (235mm)
Piston Stroke – 2.5″ (63.5mm)
Lower Platen – NA
Upper Platen, Dia. – NA
Oil Reservoir Cap – 2 gal (7.6 liter)
Overall Width – 30″ (762mm)
Overall Depth – 23.750″ (603mm)
Overall Height – 60.625″ (1540mm)
*Frame opening dimensions are measured without test platens installed in machine. Overall machine dimensions are measured with the stand, including machines where it is optional.
Humboldt offers several excellent controllers for use with our concrete compression machines allowing you to choose the controller that best fits your application.
Humboldt’s line of controllers include the HCM-5080, an automatic controller and the HCM-5070, a console version of the HCM-5080. The HCM-5080 and HCM-5070 utilize an integral hydraulic pump, which is automatically controlled by the controller. Humboldt Controllers feature a 7″ high-resolution, color, touch-screen, which provides accurate, precision machine operation. And, they both feature two channel inputs for load, which allow for the control of two separate compression frames and two additional channel inputs for displacement, which allow for extensometer and compressometer testing
Humboldt’s HCM-5080 and HCM-5070 Console Automatic Digital Controllers for concrete compression frames provide an easy-to-use automated testing work flow— just choose the test standard you wish to run and the controller will quickly guide you through the setup and run the test automatically, including releasing the pressure once failure has occurred. Choosing the “Fast Testing” option and your compression machine will run tests as fast as you can load your cylinders, cubes or blocks while sequentially numbering each test automatically.
Humboldt’s HCM-5080 and HCM-5070 controllers incorporate these standard tests in their design: ASTM C39, C78, C293, C469, C496, C1019, C109/C109M and EN 12390-3. Just pick the test you want to run as you configure your test and the controller will guide you through setup from where you can proceed with your test.
Humboldt also offers the HCM-5090, a digital indicator for use with manually-operated machines. This controller features many of the features of our automatic controllers except that it is designed for use with a manually-operated pump. The HCM-5090 incorporates the same standard test setups as the automatic controllers. Just pick the test you want to run as you configure your test and the controller will guide you through setup from where you can proceed with your test.
Humboldt’s HCM-5090 Controller features a 7″ high-resolution, color, touch-screen, which provides accurate, precision machine operation.

For the budget-minded operation, we also offer the i7 indicator, which is an easy-to-use digital load indicator that simultaneously displays both live load and rate of load values during a test.
