Grips & Fixtures
A range of grips are available for materials specimens and product samples

To complete your UTM system Mecmesin offers an extensive array of accessories approved for use with OmniTest™. Secure, distortion-free gripping which does not damage the specimen, introduce localised stresses, or restrict its deformation is fundamental in obtaining repeatable and valid test results.

OmniTest™ has a direct input connection for an extensometer, to correctly measure the true elongation of the gauge length region of the specimen, enabling VectorPro™ MT to accurately calculate the strain for elastic, ductile and brittle materials.

We also specialise in manufacturing custom-designed grips to meet particular criteria specifications. For advice and more information, contact us now.


Build Tests

standard materials specimens are available

VectorPro™ MT features a drag and drop methodology to apply all the operations needed to create a test program, apply common stress-strain calculations and build reports. Using icon-driven prompts create even the most elaborate test routines in moments and refine them as you go.

The interface guides the user to build test sequences and select standard specimen types and operations based on the type of test being conducted.

Materials testing

material properties calculations are standard in VectorPro MT software

In addition to all traditional product testing calculations (peak load, average load, load at displacement etc.), VectorPro™ MT includes a comprehensive range of stress-strain domain calculations, available to be included in the results analysis of the test routine. Pass/fail parameters can be easily added for each calculation and clearly displayed to operators.

  • Elastic Modulus (Young’s Modulus)
  • 0.2% Offset Yield
  • Yield (steel and plastic)
  • Ultimate tensile strength (UTS)
  • Stress and Strain at Break
  • Flexural modulus 3 & 4 point
  • Secant modulus

Data and Export


VectorPro™ MT is designed to help facilitate meeting FDA 21 CFR Part 11 requirements, incorporating the following features:

  • Complete fl exibility to compare the plots of all tested specimens or simply select out the specimens you wish to compare.
  • Add spot calculations not included in the original test profile view temporarily.
  • Select out the specimens you want to compare, and adjust calculation parameters temporarily or to save.
  • Link to the network so managers and operators alike can review test results remotely at their convenience.
  • Export raw data or test results to Excel files.
  • Automatically email a table of results at end of test.
  • Compare the plots of tested specimens across different test methods.
  • Create a test report including company logos, test results, graphs and notes, then print or save as PDF.
