Bent Tram A/S


Small Universal Test Machine

SUT, the Small Universal compression/tension Tester offers a unique solution for small scale testing, where limited force is required for tension and compression testing. It is ideally suited to quality assurance and process control as well as research and development. The machine is equipped with special grips and compression plates, according to the type of specimens that are to be tested. Exchanging the grips for different types of testing is very simple.. The standard maximum stroke length is 520mm, but it depends slightly on the products tested and the grips required for the specific type of testing.

It is capable of performing a range of testing procedures and can be set up for relevant international or national standards. The various testing procedures can easily be set up by using the keyboard situated on the machine. In the display the actual measurements of load/deformation can be followed while testing a specimen. The load/deformation is displayed in Newton. When the maximum load has been found it is indicated in the display, together with the corresponding deformation. Furthermore, the fracture load and deformation can be displayed.
