Universal Testing Machine is also named as the UTM machine. It is the most common instrument that can test the mechanical properties of materials, mainly used for determining the tensile, compression, bending, peeling, tearing, adhesion, and shearing strength of metal and non-metal materials or finished products. We call it the universal testing machine because it can achieve various test targets on different samples by changing fixtures. Our tensile tester machines meet many international testing standards such as GB, ISO, ASTM, BS, DIN, JIS, etc.

How to Choose a Right Universal Testing Machine?

First, you should tell us what your test samples are and what test items need to be done, such as tensile, compression, shear, tear, etc.

Secondly, you should also tell us your material sample’s approximate failure force value. It would be better to tell us the test standard you will follow. Based on your testing requirements, we will then give you one or more models matching a pair of fixtures to choose from.

Here, We will introduce the usage, advantages, and disadvantages of each type of universal testing machine.

Push Pull Tester Machine

The manual push-pull tester machine is divided into vertical and horizontal styles. The manual pull tester is the simplest push-pull testing machine. It consists of a test stand (Level or handwheel operation), force gauge with the data output function for viewing, analysis, and printing, test fixtures for tension or compression. The digital distance meter is optional.

In addition, we also have the motorized push pull tester machine. It is driven by a motor, and the force is transmitted via the ball screw. It is more stable and gives more accurate force than manual ones.

Both types of pull tester machines are commonly used to determine the pull-off force and compression force of small objects, such as crimped terminals, soldered parts, zippers, and buttons of garments or other small items. It also can be used for the peel test of small samples. They have the advantage of being cheap but straightforward in function.

Digital Universal Testing Machine

The digital display tensile machine integrates independent test procedures such as tension, compression, peeling, tearing, etc. It provides users with a variety of test items to choose from. It can be equipped with force sensors of various specifications and multiple test speeds.

Its disadvantage is that it can only display the content in electronic numbers and measure the final result. It cannot display the change of force value in a graph. Moreover, The parameter is input by keys, which is inconvenient for the operator to operate. If you want to buy a simple and general-purpose material testing machine that can realize multi-function testing, the digital universal testing machine will be an option for you.

Electronic Universal Testing Machine

The electronic universal testing machine can display the test results and show the force value changes in the form of the curve during the test. And the test results can be printed directly.

Generally, It is fitted with a colorful LCD allowing you to input various parameters and view the real-time data and trend in the test. The test data can be stored for review and recall at any time. The test operation is more convenient, and the machine is easy-to-use. This type of machine can accommodate most material tests. It is a high cost-effective tensile machine.

This universal testing machine is usually driven by a variable frequency motor or a stepper motor. The test accuracy is within ± 1% of the full range. If more complex calculations for results are required, the computer-controlled universal testing machine is a better choice.

Computerized Universal Testing Machine

This type of universal testing machine is configured with a personal computer.

The sample is mounted in a fixed clamp and a moving clamp. The force sensor located in the moving clamp and the displacement sensor built into the machine collects the force values and displacement changes during the test through the computer acquisition system to grasp the performance of the sample subjected to stretching, tearing, deformation, etc.

The content of the test result can be customized and calculated automatically by the test software, and the real-time data and curve graph can be presented on the computer screen. The test result can be printed directly by connecting a printer, or the test data can be saved permanently on your computer.

The machine is connected to a computer by RS 232 or LAN Ethernet interface.

Manual Hydraulic Universal Testing Machine

The Manual hydraulic universal testing machine adopts an open-loop control system, which features hand operation to adjust the loading during the test. It enables sensor force measurement, real-time display on the digital display screen. And it has automatic storage and print functions. After the test is completed, the test results, such as the maximum force, tensile strength, and yield strength rate of the material, are automatically calculated.

The manual hydraulic UTM has low control accuracy, but It has the advantage of relatively low cost. It is mainly used for testing metallic materials.

The manual hydraulic testing machine is able to conduct tensile, compression, bending, and other mechanical performance tests of metal materials and parts.

Servo Hydraulic Universal Testing Machine

The Servo hydraulic universal testing machine features computer fully automatic closed-loop control, sensor force measurement, real-time display on the computer screen, storage and printing, and automatic hydraulic clamping of samples. After the test is completed, the test results such as the maximum force, tensile strength, yield strength, elastic modulus, elongation after fracture, and reduction of material area are automatically obtained.

It uses the servo valve or proportional valve as the control element and adopts the high-precision pressure sensor and strain sensor to measure force and displacement.

This universal testing machine is usually used to test metal and building materials. Its test speed is slow, but the control accuracy is high.

It is an ideal testing equipment for industrial and mining enterprises, construction material companies, quality inspection centers, bridge engineering corporates, scientific research institutes, and mechanics laboratories of colleges and universities.

Extensometers

Non-metallic Material Large Deformation Extensometer (Large Deformation Measuring Device for Rubber & Plastic Elongation)

A large deformation extensometer is suitable for measuring the elongation of rubber, plastic, plastic, film, fiber, nanomaterial, polymer material, composite material, etc. It can satisfy the high measurement accuracy and convenience of clamping required by users when doing extensive deformation tests.

Technical advantages:

  • Unique clamping mechanism.
  • Lever-type opening mechanism.
  • Allows users to operate with one hand when clamping efficiently.
  • Easy to replace the clamping blade.
  • According to the actual sample’s shape, surface hardness, elasticity, the clamping blade can be customized, and the design is convenient to replace the blade. It greatly expands the application range of large deformation measurements.
  • Easy adjustment of gauge length.
  • The clamping force is adjustable.

Metal Materials Extensometer

It includes the strain gauge, deformation transfer bar, elastic element, limit distance bar, blade and clamping spring, etc.

When measuring deformation, the extensometer is mounted on the specimen, and the blade contacts the specimen to feel the elongation within the distance between the two blades. Strain is produced by the elastic element through the deformation bar, which is converted into resistance change by strain gauge, and then converted into voltage signal by the appropriate measuring and amplifying circuit.
