0.5 - 5 kN xt Tensile Testers

A Mecmesin single-column, touch screen Tensile Tester provides the ideal solution for production area quality and routine testing. The TT-xt range of portable, bench-top testers includes four models from 0.5 to 5 kN and thanks to interchangeable 'intelligent' loadcells, covers testing of a wide range of components, products and materials. Test control and comprehensive data analysis are managed by the integrated Emperor™ software, ensuring excellent accuracy, repeatability, and reliability of test data and results.

Ease of use is at the heart of the -xt range design. A library of test routines can be easily developed in accordance with international standards or 'in-house' test methods to ensure simplicity of use by operators - in fact most tests can be launched within 2 or 3 presses of a button. Operation requires minimal training.

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