Bench mounted Twin-column Uiversal Material Testing Machines (UTM) are designed to measure mid- or high force ranging from 5kN (1124lbf) up to 150kN (33722lbf) and ideal for tension and compression testing where high precision is required. The universal testing machine is given the name for its capabilities of commencing more than one specific testing operation. The materials testing machines can carry out tensile, compression, flexural, friction, insertion/extraction, peeling, tearing or cyclic tests on a wide variety of materials or components. Single column testing systems featuring linear guide technology, pre-load screws and advanced software compensation are preferably chosen where free access to the test area is desirable. Thu Universal Material Testers are suitable for industrials ranging from medical devices, plastics and packaging to textiles, rubber and electronics providing high precision and versatility. Comprehensive range of grips and fixtures is supplied to accommodate specific test specimens while powerful material testing software is offered to implement the required tests.
