Tensile Tester

Dedicated small tensile tester for measuring Peak Force, Peak % Elongation and will display Tensile Strength, Tensile Energy Absorption ( TEA ), Tensile Index and Breaking Length of low force applications up to 1330N ( 136kgs / 300lbs ). Applications include paper, board, tissue, adhesives, peel testing, seal testing, 180 degree peel strength and bond strength

Tensile Tester

With a footprint just over 0.20 square meters (2.3 square feet) the Model 84-76 Tensile Tester provides a large 5.7 inch color display, intuitive operator interface, software control, integrated printer & serial port for data collection.

Designed to test strength of sheet materials including Paper, Board, Tissue Paper, Film Packaging Seals, Adhesives, Pressure Sensitive Tapes and a variety of low force tensile applications up to 1330 N (136 Kg, 300 lbs).

The Model 84-76 Tensile Tester is a robust, precision, tensile strength instrument suitable for rugged production environments yet designed to provide highly accurate measurements for research applications.

Simple Automated Testing
When used in production, the Model 84-76 Tensile Tester automatically displays Peak Force and Peak % Elongation after each measurement. Additional results displayed are Tensile Strength, TEA, Tensile Index and Breaking Length.

Model 84-76 incorporates a new microcontroller design with a stepper motor which provides precision position control for repeatable instrument performance. An intuitive control panel and large 5.7 inch color display provides easy operation of the testing.

Intuitive Software design makes test screen set up and navigation quick and accurate. Software also allows the operator to develop, store and recall commonly used test methods for easy access thus reducing operator error. Test Method storage also insures correct settings of critical parameters resulting in repeatable result data.

A common electronic platform incorporates reusable software components which are shared with a family of instruments offered by the TMI Group. Competitively priced instruments are the result as software development costs are reduced and long term component supply is ensured.
