Universal traction device
Universal testing machine (UTM) is a versatile equipment providing tensile and compressive strength evaluation for many types of materials including geosynthetic products, textiles, rubbers, polymer products, metallic alloys, etc. supplementary mechanical tests, e.g. index puncture, flexure, and shear, are also applicable using appropriate fixtures.
Electromechanical and hydraulic machines are the most common types of UTM, both of which are supplied by Global MTM including customized fixtures. Electromechanical machines cover a range of 10 to 400 kN of load capacity, while hydraulics provide 600 to 1000 kN loading systems.
High precision sensors, user friendly interface, and versatility, as well as well-designed appearance have distinguished our products among worldwide manufacturers. The table below briefs the main distinctions of the above-mentioned categories, for which detailed specifications are available upon clicking.
