ST Series (up to 50kN) Benchtop Testing Machine

The ST Benchtop series of electromechanical universal testing machines are designed to test a wide range of materials, including, but not limited to: plastics, films, paper, packaging materials, filter material, adhesives, foils, food, toys, medical devices and components, in tension, compression, flexure, shear, and peel.

These machines are offered in capacities ranging from 1kN (200lbf) up to 50 kN (10,000 lbf). For capacities up to 5kN, the machine test frame is a space-saving single column design, while larger capacities are designed with dual-column test frames.

All ST series machines can be used with selection of hand held interfaces or a virtual machine interface running on a connected PC. The testing software can be added to your system to provide a library of standardised test routines, generate a complete graphical result of your test, and perform sophisticated powerful analyses on the test data to produce the test report you need.

A comprehensive selection of self identifying loadcells; grips, platens and fixtures to hold the simplest to most complex specimen profile; strain measurement instruments that employ several different technologies; temperature chambers, and more can be used in conjunction with these test frames.
