The MTL testers are single-column, manually operated force testers. These testers operate with a quick-action lever in either tension or compression directions. Two models are avialable - the MTL110 and the MTL330. Force measurement is performed using a Starrett DFC or DFG digital force gage.
The MTL110 can measure force up to 500N (110lbf). This tester is ideal for component testing and its compact design fits small work spaces. The MTL110 has a 6"(152mm) stroke. The tester's quick-action lever moves the rack and pinion crosshead 3"(76mm) per revolution. The lever may be positioned anywher along the 20"(508mm) column, and with a 6"(152mm) throat, large samples can be accurately tested. Options include a digital scale for measuring deflection distance. The base adapter adjusts to accomodate different gage models.
The MTL may be equipped with optional legs so that you can test in a horizontal positon.
