Extensive range of tensile testers, offering excellent value for money

Universal testing machine available in a range of capacities from 3kN to 50kN. Excellent value tensile test machine measuring and displaying tensile force and extension. Capable of performing a tensile test without having to have a PC. A separate software pack is available, if additional features are required. The following models are available:

  • T3 (up to 3 kN, travel 500 mm)
  • T5 (up to 5 kN, travel 500 mm)
  • T3-1200 (up to 3 kN, travel 1200 mm)
  • T5-1200 (up to 5kN travel 1200 mm)
  • T10 (up to 10 kN, travel 700 mm with dual screw)
  • T10-1200 (up to 10 kN, travel 1200 mm with dual screw)
  • T20 (up to 20 kN, travel 1000 mm, max. sample width 400 mm with dual screw)
  • T25 (up to 25 kN, travel 1000 mm, max. sample width 400 mm with dual screw)
  • T30 (up to 30 kN, travel 1000 mm, max. sample width 400 mm with dual screw)
  • T50 (up to 50 kN, travel 1000 mm, max. sample width 400 mm with dual screw)


  • Extensometer or a second load cell

The standard unit is able to work without a PC in two modes:

  • Constant speed regulation: During test it shows actual values of force and load. After the test it shows the maximum value of force and the max. extension. Break force is also visible.
  • Constant force regulation: A preset value of force is kept during an adjustable time. The programme can be changed via a PC and RS-232. The languages (German, English, Spanish, French, Danish and Italian) are only switchable on the LCD.

Standard delivery includes a basic-program for Microsoft Windows® to move the unit, collect and save data, printout and statistics.

Microprocessor controlled Stand-alone (working without external computer)
RS-232 to PC 2 line LCD updates force and distance
Measuring length with HP-encoder accuracy: 0.01 mm Includes software for standard testing
Made of massive aluminium and stainless steel ball-bearings and ball screws Standard loadcell: 0.03 % linearity with calibration certificate
Crosshead Speed Resolution
Speed is variable controlled from 1-700 mm/min with the max load Resolution of a standard loadcell is ± 100,000 data points with a rate of 50 Hz (standard delivery)
Max speed 800 mm/min only for moving. T20-T50 can be driven at 1000 mm/min Max. resolution is 2,000,000 data points with a high precision load cell
Special sizes with different speed are possible
