Two Colomn / Universal Testing Machines (UTM)
The Tinius Olsen benchtop range of ST models features both single and dual column frames.
The single column models have frame capacities of 1kN (100kgf/200lbf) and 5kN (500kgf/1,100lbf), while dual column models are available in capacities of 10kN (1,000kgf/2,200lbf), 25kN (2,500kgf/5,000lbf) and 50kN (5,000kgf/11,000lbf), and are designed to test a vast range of materials and finished products for strength properties in tension, compression, flexure, shear, tear and peel.
They provide the ultimate in durability, speed, accuracy and convenience and feature high precision, interchangeable strain gage load cells for capturing applied load data. This design allows rapid change of machine capacity from as little as 0.2% of the capacity of the smallest load cell (exception in 5N&10N) to the maximum frame capacity in a very simple process.
The construction of the machine frame, leadscrews and drive system make them unique. Even at full capacity, these frames have excellent rigidity with negligible frame deflection.
