Tensile test is very important test for different industries to ascertain the conditions of failure of a product. Tensile test is conducted by applying an outward force on the sample. There are certain things that need to be kept in mind while performing a tensile test. The test cannot be performed in the end product. A sample of predefined dimensions and shape is prepared on which the test is performed. The sample should be in dumbbell shape, as per the testing standards issued by relative authorities.
Tensile testing machine offered by Presto has the capacity of 2500 KG which means an equivalent load can be applied on the sample to check its resistance.
To perform the test, the dumbbell shaped sample is clamped in the upper and lower jaws of the machine. The machine will exert an outward pull on the sample to a point of fracture or until sample ruptures completely. Or creep test can also be performed, in which the sample is made to hold the load for predefined time. The behaviour of the sample is assessed visually.
The machine has rugged 2 lead screw structure for firm and precise load application. It has highly resistant coating against rust, which means the shelf life of machine is very high. Thus, the machine has low maintenance cost.
