Working Principles

The system uses a load cell based full bridge sensor to measure the force. An electromechanically controlled platform is used to apply the defined value of force to the sample as per the requirement of the test. Force and deformation are recorded through computer software and the data can be used for further analysis.


The system can measure precise force during tensile, compression, break/rupture, peel and shear tests as well as for cyclic tests meeting the international testing standards from ASTM, ISO, DIN etc.
Tests can be performed for a variety of applications like syringes, gloves, other medical related components/samples. Also samples of other materials like metallic, plastic and elastic (Rubber etc) can be tested accurately.
Graphical test results as well as raw data can be provided for various parameters like load, deformation, velocity, break limit etc.
