MTS Criterion range of tensile testing equipment carefully engineered and seamlessly integrated

The MTS Criterion range of tensile testing equipment offers a comprehensive family of load frames, which performs accurate, repeatable monotonic testing on everything from thin-film plastics to high-strength structural steel. These high-stiffness frames are designed for years of high-speed, low-vibration performance across a broad range of force capacities.

Series 40 electromechanical test systems
The series 40 comprise a comprehensive line of compact, affordable electromechanical test systems for low to medium-force monotonic testing requirements. Reliable and easy to use, the series 40 systems employ high-quality MTS electromechanical drives and integrated, digital closed-loop controls to test in load and position control at force capacities ranging from 1 N to 300 kN.

Series 60 static servo hydraulic test systems
The series 60 perform reliable tension and compression tests of high-strength specimens in a wide range of shapes and sizes. Series 60 systems employ proven MTS servo-controlled hydraulic actuation and high-resolution, digital closed loop controls to test in load, displacement or strain control at force capacities ranging from 300 kN to 2000 kN.

All MTS Criterion load frames are engineered with operator efficiency and well-being in mind, from an ergonomic design to intuitive controls and advanced safety features.

Leveraging decades of expertise and global support, MTS has expanded its extensive materials testing portfolio to include a versatile array of new electromechanical and servo hydraulic monotonic testing solutions. MTS engineered to fulfil a wide range of materials and product monotonic testing applications utilising the latest technologies available. Since the launch of the MTS Criterion range of materials testing equipment, IMP have supplied key industry leaders such as SAIW, SCAW, Eskom, Anglo American, Auto Industrial Foundry, Rheinmetall Denel Muntion and Wits University to name a few, with products.
