Highlights

Solution

  • Software-controlled high-capacity tensile tester
  • Selection of fixtures for material tensile characteristics measurement

Benefits

  • Testing to international industry standards
  • Programmed routines to repeatably perform multiple tests
We use the Mecmesin MultiTest 10-i system to perform regular quality control tests to guarantee the quality of our supplied materials. Mecmesin provided us with a cost-effective solution to our needs and exceptional customer service. I would have no hesitation in recommending them to other companies with materials testing requirements.

Requirement

British Gaskets are a major manufacturer of gaskets, sealing products and mouldings. These are made from a variety of materials to suit a range of applications. British Gaskets required a test system to ensure the rubber and polymer materials Neoprene, Viton, EPDM and Silicone meet their quality control standards and were fit for purpose.

Solution

The MultiTest 10-i provides fully automated control of all test parameters and the test results are displayed graphically within the software, showing clearly at what point the material breaks during the test. British Gaskets chose the MultiTest 10-i as a cost-effective alternative to outsourcing their materials testing process.

Test equipment

  • MultiTest 10-i
  • 1000 N loadcell
  • Spring Loaded Fold Grips and Test Hooks
