Manual Test Stand - MDD

An affordable manual test solution enabling fine positional control of the crosshead

This MDD manual test stand, operated via a handwheel, can be combined with any of Mecmesin's digital force gauges to measure tension and compression up to 1000 N. Add a height scale to measure displacement or use the MDD horizontally by adding a feet kit.

If consistent test speed and reproducibility are a priority, have a look at our Motorised Test Systems.
