CONTROLS COVID-19 Response and Action

Discover CONTROLS’ new range of automatic compression machines

Our smart and intuitive new range allows you to perform all compressive strength tests — automatically — from standard Quality Control to advanced Displacement-controlled tests on Fibre Reinforced Concrete.

These all new automatic compression machines are the outcome of 50 years of innovation and technical leadership in concrete testing equipment and are based on feedback received from our customers and distributors. 

Two new exciting models launching today!
We are excited to announce the launch of two highly anticipated and critically important new models of concrete compression machines, PILOT PRO and AUTOMAX PRO-M which perfectly complete CONTROLS' existing range of automatic testing machines.

Smart Connectivity
All Controls’ machines (except Wizard Auto) introduce new features and capabilities that will revolutionize the operations of any progressive construction quality testing laboratories.

LinkLAB is CONTROLS’ new proprietary Laboratory Connectivity Package.  It allows your compression machine to be a connected part of your laboratory infrastructure by taking inputs from any number of ancillary measuring systems and devices increasing efficiency and eliminating transposing errors.


WIZARD AUTO - Standard Quality Control concrete compression machine is now AUTOMATIC!

With the introduction of WIZARD AUTO replacing Wizard 2 and Digimax models, CONTROLS has decided to completely abandon the design and manufacture of semi-automatic machines in favour of automatic systems, even at entry-level, making this technology accessible to everyone. We firmly believe automation is the only way to reduce opportunities for operator errors thus providing total certainty in testing accuracy and strict conformity to International Standards — our long-standing objectives.


PILOT PRO - Versatile automatic compression machines for high throughput of routine failure tests

PILOT PRO is the best choice for Qualtiy Control laboratories to carry out a high throughput of routine failure tests including compression, flexure and indirect tensile tests. 

The easy-to-use high-definition graphical interface includes handy features such as saving of specimen failure type image, showing specimen geometry and access to the latest international testing standards.


AUTOMAX PRO - Smart, automatic and connected

AUTOMAX PRO is CONTROLS’ new top-of-the-range Compact-Line compression machines and is the first choice for automatic standard failure tests.

The super intuitive interface of the AUTOMAX PRO with a large easy-to-use touchscreen display operates like a smartphone or tablet enhancing user experience and comfort.


AUTOMAX PRO-M - For superior automatic Standard Failure and MOE testing

AUTOMAX PRO-M Power Control System fitted with superior hydraulics can also perform, in addition to standard failure tests, advanced concrete tests such as Modulus of Elasticity (MOE) determination.

Automatic performance of Elastic Modulus tests according to the main International Standards with automatic calculation of tests results is now easy and affordable for everyone.


AUTOMAX Multitest - Automatic Control Console for Concrete, Cement, MOE and steel testing

AUTOMAX Multitest is a versatile and automatic computerized control console suitable to perform a wide range a test methods, from basic failure (compression, flexure, splitting, tension) through cyclic tests for Elastic Modulus and Poisson’s Ratio determination up to advanced displacement controlled tests for FRC Fiber Reinforced Concrete.
