The MultiTest-dV is a superior motorised force tester offering outstanding value. Designed for precision-controlled compression and tension testing the MultiTest-dV’s simple controls, backed by sophisticated electronics, make it the ideal choice for basic materials testing.
Simply fit a dedicated ELS loadcell and connect up to VectorPro MT software to use your MultiTest-dV as an entry-level materials tester.
Use the power of VectorPro MT software to control your whole test sequence with simple, step-by-step programmes. Perform both standard calculations like peak, load at displacement and more complex calculations such as Youngs Modulus, and offset yield strength.
The MultiTest-dv is a versatile single-column, motorised tester designed for ease-of-use by operators of all levels. There are 3 models in the range with ratings of 0.5 kN, 1 kN and 2.5 kN and offering crosshead travel up to 1200 mm (47").
Each occupies minimal bench space and are ideal for applying tensile and compressive forces in a variety of applications.
It delivers superior performance via its control panel and multifunctional control wheel, which allows the precise selection of test parameters such as speed and target force/displacement. Coloured LEDs clearly indicate the machine status during testing and operators can effortlessly follow the progress of the test from the force & displacement panel.
Adjustable safety limit switches are fitted to ensure that specimens cannot be stretched too far or grips crushed together.
The MultiTest-dV is fitted with a dovetailed crosshead for quick and easy interchange of ELS loadcells, which are automatically recognised within VectorPro MT software. Grips and fixtures can be rapidly fitted to the anvil plate which is pre-drilled with threaded holes for easy connection.
With each model weighing around 25kg (55 lbs) its compact design and small footprint make it an ideal bench-top tester for use in the quality-control laboratory or production area.
The Enhanced Load Sensor (ELS) is positioned on the crosshead of the test frame and communicates with the MultiTest-dV for precision testing of materials when combined with VectorPro MT software.
There are 13 models ranging in capacity from 2.5 to 2500 N ( 0.5 - 500 lbf ) and all are fully interchangeable with their calibration characteristics being immediately recognised by the MultiTest-dV. This ensures that you have the optimum selection to meet all your materials testing needs without the need for lengthy set-up.
Measurement accuracy is an outstanding ±0.5% of reading.
Holding your test specimen in place without it slipping is essential to obtaining repeatable results. Mecmesin has an extensive range of grips and fixtures to hold a variety of components and materials. They include wedge grips and vice grips for tensile testing, compression plates and bend jigs, friction tables plus many more.
