Motorized Force Test Systems - MT-1500 Series

Motorized Force Test Systems - Universal Tensile Testing Machine - MT-1500 Series

Meeting ASTM D882 & ASTM D3354 Standards

Full-Featured Force Test Stands for Film and Paper

In the past, film extruders, paper producers, converters, and woven/non-woven fabric producers have had the choice of test stands and universal test machines which are either value-priced peak-force-only machines, or expensive computer-operated integral-load cell machines. Now you can have the best of both worlds in a single instrument. The series MT-1500, a simple to use computer operated tester, with Quality Control software for automatic calculation and graphical display of break, elongation, yield, modulus, and other, tension and compression force information.

Improved Film & Paper Quality, Increased Profit Margins

The Series 1500 Precision Force Test Stand is a proven tool for more closely controlling nominal and peak strength and elongation characteristics to speed your:

  • Research and development of new film and paper products, converted materials, wovens/non-wovens, fabrics and textiles.
  • Inspection of incoming film and paper products
  • In-process checks to ensure on-spec product for converting operations& Quality-control

Advantages of the Motorized Force Test Systems - MT-Series

Meets ASTM D882 Standard Test Method for Tensile Testing of Plastic Film and ASTM D3354 for Blocking Testing of Plastic Film and Sheet.

Easy, Error-free Operation – Two Modes of Operation:

Operate as a stand-alone, manual system or operate in Digital/Software mode using MT-1500 Force Test Software to automatically calculate force values.

Expandable; Industry-Leading Software:

Portable and expandable with optional software, printers and computer system. A computer is required for operation in the Digital/Software mode. Advanced software for display/hard-copy reporting of statistical and graphical analysis of data including yield, elongation, break strength, modulus, and friction values.

Affordable:

Best of all, the MT-1500 Series is economically priced.

Unique, Modular Design:

Test Stand can be set up with Force Gauge mounted on the front of the column for easy access for strip testing, or with Force Gauge mounted to the right of the column for access to the large working table area for testing.

Advance Engineering & Technology: 

  • Tension & Compression Testing to 550 lb (2.5 kN)
  • Crosshead Travels up to 58 inches (1470 mm)
