The synthetic suture yarn is specially designed to fulfill the requirement of surgeries to fulfill stitching purposes. There is no room of defect in hospitals during surgery; hence it is mandatory for the manufacturers of medical equipment to test the quality of the equipment they produce. The suture thread must be strong enough that can survive the forces that are exerted on the threads during the application. The machine comprises of pneumatic grip that gives an accurate measurement of the tensile strength of the suture. Presto offers highly efficient and precise Suture tensile tester with a pneumatic grip that offers highly accurate results.
While the lower jaw is stationary, the upper one can be moved at a designated fixed speed with the help of a motor. The test specimen is held between the two jaws. The upper jaw is gradually made to move to evaluate the tensile strength of the sample. The machine also incorporates a special sensor, connected to a load cell. The sensor is capable of judging the load exerted on the stationary jaw and directly indicating the reading in kgs (in digital format).
There is special case hardened lead screws which ensure stability and durability. It incorporates a standard branded motor and CE standard electrical wiring. The completely modular construction of the Presto Tensile Testing Machine ensures trouble free maintenance and easy operation.
