Single and double column benchtop testing machines are suitable for use with a wide range of materials that require tension, compression, flexure, shear or peel testing.
Materials testing equipment company, Tinius Olsen, will be using the Interplas Show in September, 2008, to announce the addition of 12 developments in its extensive range of testing equipment The company will display a representative range of bench-top testing machines.
Founded in 1880 by Tinius Olsen, who was one of the first to look at the need to test materials to ensure quality and reliability, the company said it now has one of the most extensive ranges of self-standing and bench-top machines available on the market.
* Single and double column testing machines – single and double column benchtop testing machines are suitable for use with a wide range of materials that require tension, compression, flexure, shear or peel testing.
The H1KS single column machine has a frame capacity of 1kN or 5kN, whilst the H10KS double column machines have capacities of 10kN, 25kN and 50kN.
Both models on display also feature an easy-to-read digital numerical or graphical display and a control panel that both enables test conditions to be inputted, but also then retained for future use.
* Melt Flow Indexer – Tinius Olsen will also show its MP600 modular Melt Flow Indexer which is specifically designed to meet the resin flow measurement requirements of those working in the polymer sector.
The MP600 uses a dual zone heating system in the core which has an accuracy of 0.1 deg C with a maximum temperature of 450 deg C.
The standard specification includes an integral micro-processor based controller/timer, and a fluorescent display and keypad, but the modular design ensures that the MP600 can the fully specified to meet particular needs.
The model on display also features the PPDT automatic timing switch for Procedure B testing.
