100 Series Electromechanical Universal Test Machines are modular tabletop systems ideal for low force tension and compression tests. 100 Series includes five different compact and lightweight load frames with four standard actuators featuring different force/speed capacities. The main difference between the 100 Series and other universal test machines is the number of modular product elements that can be configured to different test applications, making them one of our most popular choices.
Universal Testing Machines
Universal testing machines (UTMs) stretch, bend and compress test samples at controlled test speeds or constant loading rates. Our UTMs are used to evaluate static product and material strength properties including uniaxial tensile, compression, cyclic, shear, flexure, bend, peel, tear and material characteristics such as elongation and modulus.
TestResources' Universal Test Machines
Each series of test machines are modular, which means they are easily modified for different tests. For each load frame, we offer two tiers of test controllers (basic and premium) which work with all load cell and strain sensors. Your TestResources universal test machine uses a design and technology platform that can grow with your testing needs for many years to come.
|Series||Machine Type||Test Type||Series Type||Maximum Force|
|100 Series||Electromechanical||Static||Modular||10 kN (2,250 lbf)|
|200 Series||Electromechanical||Static||Single Column||5 kN (1,125 lbf)|
|300 Series||Electromechanical||Static||Tabletop & Floor||600 kN (135 kip)|
|600 Series||Electrohydraulic||Static||Floor Standing||2 MN (450 kip)|
Selecting a Universal Test Machines
Start by selecting the series based on the maximum force you will need. If you find that the machine test space is smaller than your largest test sample, we customize load frames with wider width column spacing or with longer columns.
