Tensile strength and elongation are the two prime characteristics of most of the raw materials, whether they are metals: or non-metals: such as rubber, textiles, plastic, paper or finished products such as rods, wires, ropes, yarns, belts etcetera. These properties very often play the major role in determining the suitability of any raw material for any specific application. It is therefore, of utmost importance to determine these characteristics accurately, conveniently, and quickly.
Tensile Testing Machine provide a relatively inexpensive way for determining the tensile strength and elongation of variety of raw materials such as rubber, leather, fabric, plastics, Belts, wires etcetera. They are based on constant rate of traverse principle in which one end of the test specimen is held in a stationary grip, while the other end is made to move at a known fixed speed with the help of motor, gearbox and screw arrangement. The load exerted on the stationary grip is sensed by a load cell and indicated by a digital load indicator. The controller is microprocessor based and has the facility of over load protection, peak hold and auto calibration. The load directly indicated in kilograms or Newton. The elongation of the test specimen is measured on a digital indicator fixed on the frame of the tester, which indicates the distance between the grips. Changing the belt in one or more sets of V pulley can change the speed of traverse of the lower grip. Different model have speeds suitable for testing different materials. An arrangement for moving the lower grip manually is also provided.
