To suit your materials testing requirements the OmniTest range is available as two models of a1 single-column materials tester (5 kN or 7.5 kN) and as 3 models of a dual-column tester (10 kN, 25 kN and 50 kN).
Designed for versatility and ease-of-use the OmniTest will appeal to users, whatever their skill or experience.
They all fit comfortably on your bench-top, making them ideal for use in QC and R&D laboratories.
All OmniTest models are controlled by VectorPro MT software running on a PC.
OmniTest delivers consistency and reliability by controlling the key test parameters of stress/strain, force/displacement and speed/load rate.
Whether you need to know the Young's Modulus, Offset Yield, Ultimate Tensile Strength or a whole host of other materials characteristics, the OmniTest has got you covered.
The single-column OmniTest materials testing system comprises five key elements:
Excellent rigidity and strength with intuitive controls making the tester easy to use even for novice operators.
The single-column OmniTest materials testers feature a precision ballscrew with linear slide mechanism driving a solid crosshead with an ELS loadcell.
All models are ideal for general purpose testing of specimens to determine their tension, compression, flexure, shear and fracture characteristics.
Our range of high resolution precision loadcells are specially adapted to the OmniTest. The ELS range are interchangeable with 'plug and play' features that mean calibration characteristics are automatically recognised by the tensile tester.
VectorPro MT materials testing software is at the heart of the OmniTest materials testers. Our software is intuitive for both operators and managers. Personalised user accounts and a streamlined user interface make it easy to design step-by-step test methods, according to your precise testing procedures.
VectorPro MT delivers outstanding control of the motor and simultaneously collecting data at 500 Hz from the ELS loadcell and test frame displacement encoder.
Available with a range of precision short and long-travel extensometers.
When testing the extension or compressive deformation of a specimen VectorPro MT compensates for movement encountered within the loadcell and grip string (ie 'Correction for Machine Compliance'), often acceptable for most requirements.
Extensometers measure extension directly on the speciment for the most accurate measurement.
Grips and fixtures
Mecmesin supply a wide range of grips and fixtures for securely holding test specimen.

Grips and fixtures
Holding your material specimen in place without it slipping is essential to obtaining repeatable results. Mecmesin has designed a range of tension and compression grips to hold a variety of components, including wedge grips, vice grips, peel jigs, bend jigs, compression plates and many more.
The varying nature of specimen sizes and shapes often makes it necessary to design and produce a special grip.
Mecmesin's team of design engineers will work with you to develop the best grip for your specimen, utilising our 3D printers to produce lightweight and precision fixtures to meet your needs.
