MultiTest 1-i (1 kN)

Mecmesin's premium range computer-controlled tensile & compression test system

The MultiTest 1-i provides a powerful and comprehensive tensile & compression testing system for force measurements up to 1kN. With full programming capability and a large selection of analysis options, through the power of Emperor™ software, the MultiTest 1-i offers unparalleled test versatility. The stand has a column height of 1510 mm (59.4"), ideal for the elongation testing of highly elastic material such as rubber and film which require test stands with extended crosshead travel. The system is combined with Mecmesin's high performance loadcells (ILC), ensuring excellent resolution and outstanding accuracy.
