The single-column type has only one column to bear the force applied to the sample in the test. It is also referred to as the table-top material testing machine, as it is relatively small in size, space-saving, and lightweight.
Generally, the maximum allowable capacity of a single-column tensile device is 5 kN, and the maximum measurable capacity that the user can select includes 10 N, 20 N, 50 N, 100 N, 200N, 500 N, 1 kN, 2 kN, 5 kN. The larger the measuring range of the universal tester, the higher the price.
Generally, the single-column tensile tester machine is more suitable for samples with low tension or compression, such as Fabric film, tape, paper, sponge, etc.
