A Universal Testing Machine (UTM) is used to test both the tensile and compressive strength of materials. Universal Testing Machines are named as such because they can perform many different varieties of tests on an equally diverse range of materials, components, and structures. The TT100 provided in this case for the custom requirements of this customer proves to be a strong asset in the tensile testing lab with the state of the art tensile and compression test hardware and software (TTSOFT) along with the customized grip manufactured ideally for this customer.
Universal Testing Machines can accommodate many kinds of materials, ranging from hard samples, such as metals and concrete, to flexible samples, such as rubber and textiles. This diversity makes the Universal Testing Machine equally applicable to virtually any manufacturing industry and our customer is a giant in Automobile manufacturing plans on making the best use of Torontech’s TT100.
The UTM is a versatile and valuable piece of testing equipment that can evaluate materials properties such as tensile strength, elasticity, compression, yield strength, elastic and plastic deformation, bend compression, and strain hardening. Different models of Universal Testing Machines have different load capacities, some as low as 5 kN and others as high as 2,000 kN. Furthermore, for individual customer requirements, Torontech does offer the ideal custom option so any customized technical requirement can be met at minimum cost and maximum efficiency.
