Tensile - Universal Tensile Testers (UTM)

Tensile Strength can be defined as the ultimate strength of a material subjected to tensile loading. It is the maximum stress developed in a material during a tensile test performed by a universal tensile tester.

A tensile test, or tension test, is done by pulling on a tensile (normalized) specimen, to determine how the material reacts to forces being applied in tension. As the material is pulled, you determine the material’s tensile strength and how much it will elongate.

The following universal tensile testers manufactured are powerful tensile testers with the flexibility to perform a wide range of tests including tensile, flexural, compression, peel, tear, friction, cycling and modulus. We offer models from 1kN to 10kN capacity with single column and dual column frames.

Universal tensile testers 1kN to 10kN

A universal testing machine or tensile tester is used to test the tensile stress and compressive strength of materials. It is named after the fact that it can perform many standard tests including tensile and compression tests for a wide range of materials. The Thwing Albert's universal materials testers can be modified to meet a broad range of test applications from simple to complex. Configure your universal materials testing machine to measure a variety of physical properties: Tensile - Coefficient of friction - Compression - Burst - Flexural bending - Peel - Puncture
