Everything You Need To Know About Presto Tensile Strength Tester
Tensile tests are used to determine the effectiveness and behavior of materials when a stretching force is applied to them. The tensile test is also often called the tensile strength test which measures the maximum stress that a material can withstand before it breaks. This quality test can easily be performed with the help of a Presto tensile strength tester. The digital model of the tensile testing machine has been equipped with high-quality features and technical specifications that make it easy for the manufacturers to conduct the tensile strength test. This lab testing instrument works on the principle of CRT which means the constant rate of traverse and has been equipped with an upper and lower jaw to firmly place the specimen.
Here in this article, we are going to provide you with detailed information about the Presto tensile strength tester and how this lab testing instrument will be helpful in testing the tensile strength of materials. But before that, let us focus on the tensile testing of the materials. So, let us get started!

What is tensile strength testing?

One of the most common mechanical tests carried out in manufacturing facilities is tension or tensile testing. Its purpose is to examine the material's specimen's physical characteristics in order to improve the final product. By conducting the tensile strength test, the quality heads can easily determine the strength and elastic properties of materials. This test involves applying a force to material until it breaks or deforms. Tensile tests are commonly used to measure the strength of metals, plastics, and other related materials. You can read more about tensile strength testing and its applications.

How to Perform a Tensile Test?

Tensile testing is a process of measuring the force required to pull material until it breaks. The results can be used to determine the strength and ductility of the material being tested. This type of test is often performed on metals and plastics.
You can easily conduct the tensile strength test using Presto tensile testing machine. This machine measures the force required to break the material and records the results.
To ensure accurate results, it is important to follow proper procedures when performing a tensile test. First, the material being tested must be properly prepared. This includes ensuring that it is clean and free of any defects. Turn the rotatory switch ON and move the lower grip in a downward direction.
Increase the value shown in the load indicator and then test the material till it ruptures. You can turn the rotatory switch Off once the specimen will get ruptured. You can easily view the results on the digital display. In this way, you can perform the tensile strength test with Presto tensile testing machine. You can even read detailed information about how you can easily perform tensile strength tests on materials.


In conclusion, tensile testing is an essential process for determining the strength and durability of materials. By understanding the basics of how it works, you can ensure that your products are of the highest quality.
