TH2730 (50) is a mechanical test system for testing new engineering materials and product designs for quality control applications.
We offer an affordable compact mechanic testing machine for tests on  materials and products with smaller forces :

Force up to  3 kN.  and now also  Force up to  10 kN (new!)

This  universal  Machine can be used standalone  or with a Computer (PC). All measuring data can be transfered using a serial  standard interface (RS 232) to a PC. 
This machine comes complete with Load Cell and control software for Windows.

 Test materials and products such as & 

  •      Biomaterials, tissues, medical devices, components (wire, tubing and needles) 

  •      Electronic components, connectors, insertion tests 

  •      Films, adhesive tapes, foils, magnetic tape 

  •      Plastics, polymers, nylon, acetals 

  •      Elastomers,rubber,foam,latex, compounds 

  •      Automotive components, interior structures, foams 

  •      Packaging materials such as paper, cardboard, wood 

  •      Cords and Textiles, yarn, strings & threads, fabrics 

  •      Racquet strings, thin cables, composite fibers 

  •      Shingles and construction material 

compact affordable and complete !

Peak Load
Peak Stress
Average Load Over Extension Range
Load at Extension Point
Modulus of Elasticity
Elongation at Break
Reduction of Area
Extension at Load

Greatest Load during test.
Peak Load divided by specimen area.
Average Load between two user specified extension points.
Load value at a user specified extension point.
Slope of the Stress-Strain curve in the elastic region.
Elongation at the time of fracture including elastic and plastic deformation of tensile specimen.
Final Area divided by Original Area Elongation at the specified Load.
Calculation of the area under the Load-Displacement curve.
Stress at the point on the Stress-Strain curve where the Modulus Line, Offset by a user specified amount in the strain direction, intercepts the curve.
Load at the point on the Load-Strain curve where the Modulus Line, Offset by a user specified amount in the Strain direction, intercepts the curve.
Stress at the point on the Stress-Strain curve where a line drawn parallel to the Stress axis and offset by a user specified amount in the Strain direction intercepts the curve.
Load at the point on the Load-Strain curve where a line drawn parallel to the Load axis and offset by a user specified amount in the Strain direction intercepts the curve.
