Model 10, 25, and 50 ST - Benchtop Tester for Tension, Compression, Flexure, and Shear

The models 10ST, 25ST, and 50ST are built for tension, flexure, compression, and shear strength testing on assemblies and materials. The strong design includes quality materials and components that ensure the company’s reputation for excellent system performance, longevity, and ease of use is maintained. A range of loadcells is available in varying capacities that deliver precise applied load measurements from the smallest test specimen to ones that go to maximum machine capacity. Test machines become total, powerful test systems with the incorporation of grips to hold the specimen, strain measurement instrumentation and Tinius Olsen’s Horizon Data Analysis software.

Features and Benefits

Model 10, 25, and 50 ST - Benchtop Tester for Tension, Compression, Flexure, and Shear

Familiar handheld interface that is tethered to the machine. With its larger, tactile, sealed keypad, this interface is ideal for operators who use gloves to load and unload specimens and prefer a push button keypad. It requires virtual machine control software running on a connected PC to operate the basic machine functions and report basic numerical test data.
Wireless handheld interface that is connected to the machine by a Bluetooth link. The interface features an Android-based operating platform and can be used to control the machine by itself or in conjunction with Tinius Olsen’s Horizon software
