Paper industry

The machines for tensile tests are used to test the tensile strength of paper, cardboard and related materials. This is important for assessing the quality of the materials used in the production of packaging, labels, paper products and more.

Common tests in the textile and clothing industries

A bench material testing machine is perfect for testing threads, yarns and twines – to ascertain their tensile strength -, as well as for testing finished textile products such as those made of silk, cotton, wool and synthetic fibres.

This instrument will help you to ensure the quality of your textile products and identify the mechanical properties of your materials.

These machines are used to test the strength of fabrics, fibres and seams. They help estimate the durability and strength of materials used in the production of clothing, technical textiles and other textile products (some reference standards are: EN ISO 13934-1, EN ISO 13937-2, EN ISO 9073-4, ISO 3303, EN ISO 12236, EN ISO 10319, ISO 4606).

Tensile tests in flexible packaging industry, food industry, pharmaceutical packaging industry

In the film and plastic film sector, the machines for tensile tests are used to evaluate the mechanical properties of materials, such as tensile strength, elongation, breaking behaviour, deformation and shear and tear strength. This information is essential to ensure that plastic films used in flexible packaging and film production meet the quality and safety standards.

For film and packaging manufacturers, the strength of materials is crucial to ensure the safety and integrity of products. With this precision instrument, it is possible to evaluate all the key characteristics and parameters of films and packaging made of paper, cardboard or synthetic materials. Some of the applicable reference standards are, for example: ISO 4578, Finat FTM 9, EN 1939, AFERA 4001.

Testing operations in the automotive sector

A low-load bench material testing machine like Microdyno can be used to test materials used in the production of automotive components, such as rubbers, polymers, interior fabrics and plastic parts. This helps to ensure that the materials are strong enough to meet the safety and durability requirements of the automotive industry.

Universal testing for R&D

Material tensile test benches are also used in research and development laboratories, both private and of universities and research institutes, to conduct experiments and studies on the strength of materials. This contributes to the understanding of the mechanical properties of materials and to innovation in several fields.

For all companies involved in research and development projects, Microdyno Tensile offers an unparalleled opportunity to explore new materials and evaluate their performance: it allows prototypes to be tested, the strength of innovative materials to be measured and the development process to be improved, without relying on external, often costly and time-consuming laboratories. It goes without saying that setting up an in-house testing laboratory eliminates any possibility of information leakage, which is essential when patents and innovations come into play.

Medical device industry testing

The low-load bench material testing machine is used to test the strength of materials used in the production of medical devices such as flexible tubes, surgical wires, stents and prostheses. This helps to ensure that the materials meet the safety and reliability standards required in the healthcare sector, which is constantly moving towards ever greater miniaturisation.

These kinds of machines are used to test the mechanical strength of materials used in the production of electronic components such as cables, connectors and enclosures. This helps to ensure that materials meet the requirements of durability and safety in electronic applications.

Tests on the products of chemical industry

A machine for tensile tests can be used to test the strength of materials and products such as paints, adhesives, sealants and resins. This helps to assess their durability and resistance under different stress and strain conditions, as well as to understand their tear, peel and adhesion characteristics.

Universal tests for building sector

In the building products sector, material testing machines are used to test the strength of materials used in the production of flooring, tiles, pipes, cladding panels, electrical cables, switches and accessories for home automation, and many other building materials. This helps to ensure the quality and reliability of the materials used in construction.

Automation and robotics industry

These testing machines are used to test the strength of materials used in the production of automation and robotics components, such as springs, elastic components, belts and tie rods, which are becoming increasingly miniaturised and have increasingly tight tolerances. This helps to ensure the quality and reliability of the components used in these sectors.

Questi sono solo alcuni esempi, ma le prove su molle di piccole dimensioni con carichi fino a 500 kg trovano applicazione in molti altri settori dove è richiesto un prodotto finale capace di garantire una forza elastica per supportare e controllare il movimento, l’assorbimento degli urti o il mantenimento di una posizione specifica.
