Mini Universal Testing Machine


A universal testing machine (UTM), also known as a universal tester, materials testing machine or materials test frame, is used to test the tensile, compressive and bending strength of materials.

Limitations of the equipment

  1. Load cells limit = 1000 N

  2. Test speed range = 0.001 to 2000 mm/min

  3. Maximum crosshead travel =

Test sample considerations

  1. Only flat samples, not round, can be tested.

  2. The machine is designed only for non-metallic, soft samples such as polymer composites, rubber etc.
