Universal testing machines
19 September 2018
British specialist in force and torque testing equipment, Mecmesin will demonstrate its OmniTest universal testing machine and VectorPro MT materials testing software at Advanced Engineering 2018.
Designed to meet the diverse needs of both R&D laboratories and quality assurance environments, this new generation of universal testing machines offers enhanced performance and excellent value for money.
On show will be the OmniTest 5 kN single-column UTM and a dual-column OmniTest 25 kN benchtop system, designed for testing larger, higher strength samples.
The OmniTest is the ideal solution for performing static tensile and compressive tests to measure the mechanical properties of a wide range of materials, including metals, polymers, composites, fabrics, glass and ceramics. Quantitative results for tests such as tensile strength and compression forces on materials are generated with a high degree of repeatability - essential aspects for effective quality control.
The OmniTest has a simple-to-use front panel for selection of test parameters, live load and length readings and precise manual crosshead positioning using the multifunction controller. Coloured LEDs indicate machine status during testing.
The OmniTest incorporates state of the art electronics and a new Enhanced Load Sensor (ELS). Load accuracy is 0.5% rdg with a resolution of 1:25000 allowing a wider range of tests to be performed without the need to select a different load sensor.
The system can be supplied with or without an extensometer depending on the customer’s actual testing requirement.
At the heart of the OmniTest lies Mecmesin’s new VectorPro MT material analysis software. Powerful, intuitive and touch screen friendly, Vector Pro MT has been designed with ease of use at the forefront through an intuitive drag & drop test builder, built-in stress-strain calculations, icon driven graphing tools and configurable reporting options.
VectorPro MT is intuitive to use with minimal training. The icon-based interface acts like a 'wizard' taking the user step-by-step through even the most elaborate and complex test routines quickly, with the ability to refine as you go.
VectorPro MT is built around a database that logs user permissions, test parameters, test versions and results. This database architecture provides an audit trail and e-signature functionality delivering compliance with 21 CFR Part 11 requirements. Stand M72
