• Easy adaptation of the machine for testing different type of materials by means of exchanging the testing accessories and the load cell (paper, cardboard, plastic film, rubber, textile, etc.)

• Possibility of carrying out tensile and compression tests, including, among others, friction tests, peel tests, puncture tests, etc.

• High rigidity steel and aluminum frame

• Driven by servo motor and high accuracy ball screw

• Adjustable feet for the equipment leveling

• Emergency push button

• Internal pneumatic circuit for air supply connection (when using pneumatic grips)

• CE mark

• Measuring range from 0 to 1.000 N for MTC-100(L) models and from 0 to 5.000 N for MTC- 500(L) models

• Maximum travel: 500 mm and 750 mm (L model). Consult your provider about other extensions

• Testing and approaching speeds between 0.2 and 750 mm/min

• Security. Electronic (programming) and physical (limit switches) overload protection

• RS-232 interface for connection to management and control programs

• USB connection for maintenance works and for connection with USB printer

• Force readings with a resolution of 0.004 % of the FS, and extension readings with a resolution of 0.01 mm

• Accuracy. <1% of the applied force in a range between 2% and 100% of the FS



The machine, through its RS-232 connection, allows the total control and management of the test, by means of the PTA NOVILOG Software. It will be possible to pre-set tests, save test results graphical curves, carry out test reports, etc.
