The Tinius Olsen wire twisting machine is a benchtop system that provide the simplicity, performance and affordability needed for quality control and product testing.
The twister is designed to check the number of twists required to fracture a wire. Normally furnished as a bench unit, these machines are also available as floor models, and as multiple twisting units for simultaneously testing two, three or more samples.
The standard, variable speed, motor drive makes up to 62 twists per minute (rpm) with a maximum torsion rating of 1,500in.lbs. A counter indicates the total number of twists, and automatically stops the machine when the specimen fails.
Wire samples up to 18in long can be accomodated. An initial tensile load of up to 150lb can be applied to prevent kinking. Load is read in 2lb, increment on a scale.
