Universal Testing Machine Model F0025

The Universal Testing Machine has been specially designed and manufactured to perform tests in both compression and tensile, without having to change the attachments.

The universal measurement of firmness and hardness is based on a physical property called the indentation force deflection (IFD). It is calculated by determining the force required to deflect a test piece a percentage of its original thickness using a circular indentor, which applies a force, while also recording the degree of indentation.

IDM Instruments Pty Ltd has designed their Universal Testing Machine with fixed dual testing capabilities comprising of compression testing on the inner and tensile testing on the outer frame.

By incorporating the dual testing space design, this eliminates the need of having two machines required for testing. The same machine is used for compression and tensile testing.

The software program has been designed to allow testing of both compression and tensile capabilities, enabling the same software to be used on the one machine with dual testing.

The great benefit of the Universal Testing Machine is the dual testing capability, saving time for operators needing to change between fixtures, as they are fixed onto the machine at their own designated area.

The operator needs only to switch a button on the machine to select from tensile to compression, which in turn speeds up production time, test set up time, reduces operator fatigue and decreases possible setup errors.

The twin column bench-mounted Universal Testing Machine has a strong and durable frame to withstand years of use. It offers excellent accuracy and ease of use, operating on the IDM Instruments Pty Ltd software program.

The Universal Machine can also be custom made to accommodate a wider testing space, while leaving no restrictions on the sample length that can be tested.
