Extensometers: Extension measurement is one of the areas that complements our range of UTM program. The result is a comprehensive range of high class variations. General purpose extensometers for axial tensile, compression and cyclic testing. Gage lengths from 0.5 to 2 inches (and 10 to 50 mm) and measuring ranges from 5% to 100% strain.

These extensometers are designed for testing a wide range of materials, including metals, plastics, composites and ceramics. All will work in both tension and compression. The dual flexure design makes them very rugged and insensitive to vibrations, which permits higher frequency operation.

They come standard with Qualitest’s quick attach kit, making it easy to mount the extensometer on the test specimen in seconds with one hand. The quick attach kit can be removed, allowing mounting of the extensometer with springs or rubber bands. Learn more

Grip & Fixtures: Qualitest offers an extensive range of advanced test fixtures and grips, accessories, and adapters for Universal Testing Machines, and Tensile/Compression Testers. Explore products

Electronic Tensile Tester: These tensile testing equipment are specially designed considering tensile testing requirements for flexible materials that are commonly used in product packaging to study different properties of materials.

This instrument utilizes Qualitest's latest embedded control system and operating software, with user-friendly operating interface and intelligent data management system. 

These tensile testing equipment can be used to perform different type of tests like traction, stripping, sealing, tear, compression, bending, and cutting strength of plastic film, composite film, plastic tapes, soft packaging material, rubber sheets, paper, non-woven fabrics and other packaging materials, widely used in industries related to production of plastic films, packaging, pharmaceuticals, food, inspection agency, research institutes etc. to study properties of materials and finished products.

Concrete Strength Testers: This category of products comprises the range of instruments utilized to evaluate construction material strength. The range of instruments is typically considered to be two parts. The first are non-destructive field tests of compressive strength. The second are tensile field tester systems to either determine the tensile strength of an overlay or bond material, or tensile strength of anchors embedded in the concrete. The first group is pure Non-Destructive Testing where the strength of the material is determined by correlation to another parameter more easily available and readily apparent. This is typically the hardness of the concrete or the resistance to penetration by either a pin or probe. The Windsor Probe, Windsor Pin and our line of Rebound Hammers all fall within this category. These are widely used standard tests and as such have seen use throughout the world.

The second set of instruments is our concrete tensile testers. These have been optimized to both test the strength of the anchors and repair overlay material. They can be used to test until failure or to simply verify that the material will not be affected by a specific amount of force. A number of considerations were taken into account when designing this line of products, include viscous damping of the resultant failure backlash, portability, and ruggedness.

We supply a wide range of non-destructive test equipment for concrete and other coarse grained materials. Our instruments measure and analyze strength, and structure, and are rugged, quality equipment for field use, backed by factory service and an ongoing program of research and development. All instruments are NIST traceable and conform to the corresponding ASTM standards. Learn more

High & Low Temperature Universal Testing Machine: High and Low Temperature UTM Environmental System enables the testing of material and components under a variety of real world conditions. Cooperating with environmental chamber, XWW series machines can realize variety of tests at low or high temperature.

ASTM D638 Standard Test Method for Tensile Properties of Plastics. This test method covers the determination of the tensile properties of unreinforced and reinforced plastics in the form of standard dumbbell-shaped test specimens when tested under defined conditions of pre-treatment, temperature, humidity, and testing machine speed.

Specimens are placed in the grips of the universal tester at a specified grip separation and pulled until failure. For ASTM D 638 the test speed is determined by the material specification. An extensometer is used to determine elongation and tensile modulus.

A thermal chamber is installed on the universal test machine. The chamber is designed to allow the test mounts from the base and crosshead of the universal tester to pass through the top and bottom of the chamber. Standard test fixtures are installed inside the chamber, and testing is conducted inside the controlled thermal environment the same as it would be at ambient temperature. The chamber has internal electric heaters for elevated temperatures and uses external carbon dioxide gas as a coolant for reduced temperatures. The size of the chamber places a limitation on the maximum elongation that can be reached, and extensometers are generally limited to no more than 200° C. Learn more

Motorized Force Test System - MT Series: 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. Learn more

Hydraulic Universal Testing Machines - HW Series: Rigid 4-column load frame construction providing superior axial and lateral stiffness and minimum maintenance, low reaction at specimen failure. Chrome plated columns for easy cleaning and longer life.

Extra-length screws and columns, with an adjustable lower crosshead, to increase the available test space for longer test specimens. Double acting crossbeam quickly accommodates specimens of varying lengths. In the case of the additional length of columns, the maximum testing space is adjustable to meet extra length specimens.

Fully open front hydraulic wedge grips make it easy to insert and remove specimens for increased productivity and operator safety.  Interchangeable design allows a limited number of jaw faces to accommodate a large range of specimen sizes. Fully open front wedge clamps for easier loading and allowing rapid loading and unloading of specimens. Including grip control system mounted directly at the machine Tooling for tension, compression, bend/flex, shear, and other tests available. With digital displacement transducer for the best positioning and measuring accuracy. Learn more

Universal Testing Machine - QM Series: The QM-Series Universal Testing Machine is loaded with technical features, ergonomic design and is produced with the highest quality as a benchmark. This instrument is suitable to be used in production lines, where the operator has to be fast and efficient, and accurately control the test, Testing lab environments, where using the advanced software, the users can analyze the test data, have full control on processing, filing, and test management.

A Universal Testing Machine (UTM) is used to test both the tensile and compressive strength of materials. Universal Testing Machines are named as such because they can perform many different varieties of tests on an equally diverse range of materials, components, and structures. Most UTM models are modular and can be adapted to fit the customer’s needs.

Universal Testing Machines can accommodate many kinds of materials, ranging from hard samples, such as metals and concrete, to flexible samples, such as rubber and textiles. This diversity makes the Universal Testing Machine equally applicable to virtually any manufacturing industry.

The UTM is a versatile and valuable piece of testing equipment that can evaluate materials properties such as tensile strength, elasticity, compression, yield strength, elastic and plastic deformation, bend compression, and strain hardening. Different models of Universal Testing Machines have different load capacities, some as low as 2 kN and others as high as 3,000 kN. Learn more
