Bench mounted Twin-column Universal 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.
Dual column UTMs are high force machines with capacity up to 150kN suitable for heavy load, high accuracy testing applications while single column units are available at lower cost with capacities up to 5kN. How much maximum load you will typically need based on the type of materials you are testing is among the key issues (sample size, space availability, amount of crosshead travel, cost etc.) to consider in deciding whether to opt for a single-column or a dual-column machine.
These universal testing machines are used to determine the physical and mechanical properties of raw materials (e.g. leather, rubber, plastic, asbestos, plywood, ceramics, resins, metal, PVC, paper, textile, wire, etc.) as well as components, and ideal for product testing of finished goods such as plastics, packaging, medical devices, electronic components, textiles, metals, composites, paper and more.
Materials testing machines from Lloyd Instruments guarantee the highest level of performance and capability for production testing, quality control, laboratory testing, research and education to provide expert materials testing solutions.
A comprehensive range of material testing machines can be chosen for testing of tensile strength, compression, flexure, friction, tear, peel, adhesion, shear, ductility, insertion, shear strength and many other parameters.
