ETM-A Series single column (50N-5kN)

The ETM type A Series addresses the needs of standardized and routine testing, providing the user high quality at the most affordable price. The single column testing systems are suited for tension and/or compression applications where tests are less than 5 kN and lab space is limited. They are typically used for quality control and production testing.

Typical specimens: plastics, fine wire, fibers and threads, biomaterials, thin films, adhesives, foam, packaging, paper products, consumer products

New Features

·        Robust linear motion guide increases lateral stiffness and ensure linear crosshead travel. This results in accurate crosshead alignment thus reducing variability in measurement data and producing better overall accuracy

·        Imported servo motor with precise planet-gear speed reducer provides higher driving efficiency, low noise and free of maintenance. No need replace lubricates which has longer working life.

·        Compact design saves lab space

 High Quality at affordable price

·        Pre-loaded ball screws and heavy duty bearings assure long life with zero backlash as well as linear low force and through zero performance. The result is accurate and repeatable measurements that truly represent the specimen characteristics rather than load frame deficiencies

·        Fully-protected lead screw covers provide longer life and greater operator protection

·        High-speed, low vibration, world-class, maintenance-free, AC servo motor and servo controller

·        Photoelectrical encoder built in servo motor system is for position measurement of crosshead

·        Built-in bidirectional load cell is assembled in the middle crosshead to prevent any collisions and simple to perform compression or tension tests

·        Dual action over-travel limits on all frames provide the highest level of safety and meet all international standards

·        Remote control keypad facilitates test operation

·        Full one-year warranty on parts and labor

·        Free software upgrading

 Full complement of test accessories

Extensive range of accessories to meet test requirements in almost any application or industry: plastics, metals, biomedical, composites, elastomers, components, automotive, aerospace, textiles, and more.
