The compact, robust material testing machines of the UNIMAT® BASIC series are designed for quick and easy quality testing. They are available with load frame versions of 3 kN, 5 kN, 10 kN and 20 kN. They are made of aluminium and V2A, so they can be used in production monitoring. These universal testing machines are equipped with an electromotive drive, ball screw and bellows for driving the transports. The motor and machine controls as well as the measuring and control system are built into the table-frame housing. A strain gauge force transducer is used to measure the force. All testing machines can be operated as a stand-alone version or with an external Windows program.
