Universal Materials Testing Machines

The universal materials testers manufactured by Thwing-Albert are powerful tensile testers with the flexibility to perform a wide range of tests including tensile strength, flexural properties, compression, peel, tear, friction, cycling and modulus.  We offer models from 1kN to 10kN capacity with single column and dual column frames. 

Tensile Strength can be defined as the ultimate strength of a material subjected to tensile loading. It is the maximum stress developed in a material during a tensile test.

Browse the grips and fixtures catalog to find the options available to configure your tensile tester to meet industry standads including ASTM, ISO, TAPPI and many more.
