Materials Testers

Mecmesin has long been a provider of choice for product testing applications in force and torque, but Mecmesin universal testers are equally at home testing the mechanical and physical properties of raw materials, rubber, plastics, wire, textiles etc. Our range of OmniTest™ UTM systems, with VectorPro™ MT materials testing software are specifically designed to measure stress-strain properties of test specimens.

The FPT-H1 COF tester is a dedicated machine able to measure the frictional properties of materials and coatings of samples such as thin plastic films, paper and board. With the right fixtures and grips the whole of the Mecmesin MultiTest-i and MultiTest-xt range of testing machines can be used in a variety of materials testing applications where extensometry is not critical.

Add to that the power of Emperor software, and our proven track record in providing solutions to individual requirements (no matter how unusual!) and you have a formidable combination.

The examples shown here are just a few where Mecmesin machines have been used to measure material properties successfully and with customer satisfaction..
