Tinius Olsen's line of Benchtop Materials Testing Machines are designed to test a wide spectrum of materials including metals, plastics, rubber, textiles, paper, yarn, wire, adhesives, ceramics, timber, foils, composites and finished components in tension, compression, flexure or shear. Maximum frame capacities from 1kN (200lbf, 100kg).
Tinius Olsen offers two types of tensile tester at the listed capacity thresholds, namely the S series and the T series. The S series includes a control panel as part of the test frame to allow the machine to be used independently, whereas the T series must be connected to a Windows PC to be used. In addition to our standard test frames, Tinius Olsen offers a couple of select application testing frames capable of accomodating wide specimens or testing at ultra high speeds.
All testing hardware is fully complemented by Tinius Olsen developed software that turns your hardware into a sophisticated quality analysis system. Be sure to examine the software products to determine which package is right for your application.
