We have just launched new longer-length test stands for improved determination of break strength and elongation when testing rubber and film samples.
The extended stands are constructed using a rigid aluminium base-casting and precision ballscrew, making them ideal for elongation testing up to 1200mm of highly elastic material such as rubber and film. To accommodate the extra length and to comply with the EU Topple Test, these long stands are fitted with stability bases made of steel.
The new 1kN and 0.5kN models are available with software and electronics from Mecmesin’s established range of MultiTest-d, MultiTest-xt and MultiTest-i tension and compression test frames.
The extended stands are now in full production with the first machine being supplied to a large manufacturer in Australia to enable improved testing of female hygiene products.
Our MD, John Page, says: "Quality Control Managers in the plastics and rubber industries will now find it much easier to test their samples and the results will be more representative of the materials benig tested which will significiantly improve their production process."
