Our history

Mecmesin was established in 1977 and is a British company specialising in the design and manufacture of force, materials testing and torque measurement equipment for quality control.

Mecmesin is a part of the Physical Properties Testing (PPT) group, a multi-national holding company.

Based in West Sussex, England, Mecmesin is an international company with subsidiaries in China, France, Germany, Thailand, and the USA.

Mecmesin has a global network of exclusive distributors over 50 countries, providing customers with local technical expertise, training, application and after-sales support.

For more than 40 years Mecmesin has provided high quality testing solutions that deliver outstanding performance and longevity, as well as an affordable alternative to many higher-priced systems available.

This enables any business, small or large, to perform quality control checks on their products without compromising on precision and accuracy.

The rugged design of Mecmesin instruments and systems guarantees that they can withstand tough factory conditions and perform tests at the point of production, rather than having to use expensive laboratories or third-party providers to ensure consistent manufacture.

There are three distinct levels of testing system, including easy-to-use motorised systems, touchscreen controlled systems (ideal for production line/shop floor), and fully-featured software-controlled test systems.

Our test solutions enable you to measure according to BS, DIN, ASTM, and ISO standards from 2.5 N for our gauges to 50 kN on our twin-column systems.

We also provide and design an extensive range of accessories and gripping fixtures, including:

  • compression plates
