Table Model STM Series

STMlrg

SSTM models OVER 2.5Kn capacity are two-column testing machines

Table Model STM Machines are available in two standard load frame capacities:

50 kN (11,250 Lbf)      100 kN (22,500 Lbf)
The United “Smart-1” STM model is a computer inclusive electromechanical testing system designed to work in conjunction with a variety of United test instruments and software, written specifically for different types of sample material including ceramics, plastics, polymers, metals and composites. The STM series features a wider distance between columns than SSTM and may be ordered with a lower capacity load-weighing system if required. Other options include extended column height and extra wide distance between columns. The STM may be operated on your own sturdy test bench or order a test stand from United.

Multi-Station Model MS Series

Two words best describe the benefits afforded by United’s multi-station testing sytems: HIGH PRODUCTIVITY. Test up to six samples at once for the cost of about two stand-alone units.

 Capacity: up to 5,000 lbf  (22 kN) per station.

Each test system is a computer-inclusive unit that is capable of testing up to six samples simultaneously. Data from each sample are recorded in real time by United’s data acquisition, reduction and machine control system. The multi-station testing system is recommended for high-volume repetitive testing of plastics, lapshear, film, elastomers and thin metals. The 60° angled frame configuration allows easy sample loading. The system is available with pneumatic gripping systems, clamping extensometry devices, strain gauge load cells and sample measuring devices.
