Test Types

Mecmesin provides solutions for tests on products or materials that require measurement of a force to pull apart, push together, twist or turn. We divide these into broad test types as listed here. Some tests are best done with smaller instruments, some require our largest test stands, depending on the specimen to be tested, its size, shape and force required. These pages explain a little more about what is involved in each test type, and lead you to our suitable systems and instruments.

If you cannot find the information or specific detail you require, please call our experts, or request a callback and we will contact you.

As a leader in the design and manufacture of force and torque testing equipment, Mecmesin has a vast array of experience in test applications, used across a wide range of applications among quite diverse clients.
