0.5 - 5 kN i Tensile Testers

A Mecmesin single-column, Tensile Tester provides the ideal solution for for routine quality-control or design testing.The TT-i range of portable bench-top testers includes four models from 0.5 to 5 kN and thanks to the interchangeable ‘intelligent’ loadcells, it covers testing of a wide range of components, products and materials.

Test control and comprehensive data analysis is provided by Emperor™, our top-of-the range suite of software, which along with the quality of the TT-i range of test stands, provides excellent accuracy, repeatability and reliability of test data and results. Test routines can be easily developed in accordance with international standards or ‘in-house’ test methods. To ensure simplicity of use by operators most tests can be launched within 2
or 3 presses of a button.

TT-i 0.5 kN, TT-i 1 kN, TT-i 2.5 kN and TT-i 5 kN
