Tinius Olsen's material testing system helps companies in the textile industry test their fabrics, cords, yarns, ropes and threads for break strength, elongation and tear resistance. All Tinius Olsen's Constant-Rate-of-Extension (CRE) and Constant-Rate-of-Loading (CRL) machines meet or exceed ASTM D76, the requirement for tensile testing machines for the determination of the force and elongation properties of textiles.
Tinius Olsen material testing systems are chosen by the textile industry because of their reliability and ease of use. We have a large selection of tensile grips specifically designed for testing fabric, thread, ropes and webbings.
All Tinius Olsen testing machines can be equipped with one of two closed loop servo-controllers. Horizon, our most advanced testing system, is a PC-based unit that provides a wide range of flexibility in control, data acquisition, analysis and reporting. Horizon automatically calculates general mechanical properties according to specifications such as ASTM D638, ASTM D790, ASTM D412, and ASTM D624. The HMC2.0 Digital Controller, a standalone touch panel unit, provides a balance between performance and simplicity.
