MultiTest 5-xt programmable universal tester

MultiTest 5-xt (5 kN)

Force testing system designed with a touch screen interface for tensile & compression testing

The MultiTest 5-xt is Mecmesin's mid-range programmable, yet self-contained force testing machine rated to 5 kN. Using a touch screen interface, it is ideal for the production environment, where repeatable, accurate routine tensile & compression tests are performed, requiring minimum set-up time and training.

The system uses Mecmesin’s high performance Intelligent Loadcells for excellent resolution and outstanding accuracy.

Automated testing = Maximum efficiency

Test Automation

The PLC (Programmable Logic Controller) or Digital Control Interface facilitates additional automation, enabling control of external devices, which can perform other tasks normally undertaken manually. Using a PLC allows tests to run safely without the requirement of an operator present, thereby maximising productivity, lowering costs and minimising mistakes, often caused through human error.
