The Universal Testing Machine or the UTM is dual-testing machine. This is because it can perform compression and tensile testing. That too without changing the attachments of the machine.
The Universal testing machine enables measurement of firmness and harness. It is based on a physical property called the indentation force deflection (IFD). Which is calculated by determining the force required to deflect a test piece. Which is a percentage of its original thickness using a circular indentor. This applies a force, while also recording the degree of indentation.
IDM Instruments’ U-T-M comes with fixed dual testing capabilities. Which comprises of compression testing on the inner frame. As well as tensile testing on the outer frame. This incorporation of dual testing space design is beneficial. as it eliminates the need of having two machines required for testing. The same machine is useful for both tests.
The twin column bench-mounted UTM has a strong and durable frame. Thus, can withstand many years of use. It offers excellent accuracy and ease of use. It operates on the IDM Instruments Pty Ltd software program.
We also manufacture custom UTM tom accommodate as per customer needs. Including a wider testing space. This removes the sample length restrictions.
This machine is useful for various materials. For example, textiles, rubber, springs, plastic and others. The tests conform with relevant testing standards. Such as ASTM, ISO, JIS, GB.
IDM Instruments has 48 years of experience in manufacturing these machines. Thus, high quality is guaranteed.
