Our products

Product category: Measuring equipment for tensile stress of film,sheet

Frame Capacities from 1 to 50kN (200-11k lbf)

The ST series of electromechanical testing machines from Tinius Olsen 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.

All ST series machines can be used with selection of hand held interfaces or a virtual machine interface running on a connected PC. Tinius Olsen's Horizon 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. Add Tinius Olsen's powerful Horizon software to ensure you have one of the best, most accurate, most repeatable, flexible and easy-to-use systems on the market today.

Hydraulic Frame Capacities from 150 to 3000kN (30-600k lbf)

Tinius Olsen’s hydraulic testers have long been recognized as the standard for accuracy, dependability, and versatility in universal testing machines. The many thousands of testers currently in use throughout the world attest to this fact. Now more than ever, the SL series represents the highest standard in hydraulically powered universal testing machines.

It features a patented dual-pressure hydraulic loading system and a rugged four-column construction for exceptional load frame rigidity. In addition, it has a space-saving console with a smaller footprint and comfortable working height design.

A range of user interface options are available, including Bluetooth and/or tethered interfaces, to enable basic tests, comprehensive tests and everything in between, through Tinius Olsen’s Horizon materials testing software.

FH 1

The FH 1 is an advanced Tinius Olsen hardness testing instrument. Capable of meeting or exceeding the applicable ASTM, ISO-EN, DIN, JIS standards, and more.

Traditional hardness testing systems use dead weight mechanical designs or spring force mechanisms to apply force. Often times these mechanisms can cause inaccuracy's and/or wear over time. The FH 1 utilizes a closed loop load cell based technology with force feedback. This system constantly measures and controls the applied force on the indentation area.
