What are the Possible Problems Caused during the Tensile Test?

The tensile strength tester from Presto is considered to be the most commonly used testing equipment that will let you determine the tensile strength of materials with ease. The tensile strength tester computerized cum digital model is capable of producing enough force of tensile nature that can give precise and accurate analysis. This testing instrument is best for quality analysis of materials and products in QC labs as well as mainstream production chains.

Here, we are going to provide you with the information about top problems that will be caused while taking the tensile test. But before that, let us focus on the importance of the tensile test.

Importance of tensile test in different industries

The tensile testing machine is mainly used in several industries and industrial laboratories for the purpose of studying the tensile properties of various materials. This testing instrument is meant for creating high tensile forces that will help you determine whether your product is suitable for production or not.

This testing instrument is provided by the limit switch which acts as a safety feature for the machine and limits the movement of grips in the machine. The outer body of the material is fabricated with mild steel which is duly powder coated. This testing equipment comes with a digital readout so that you can accurately get the test results. You will get a digital peak load indicator that will help you to easily determine the test results.

The digital cum computerized model of this lab testing instrument can be used in industries like metal and construction, electronic industry, paper, and packaging industry. From testing the elongation and strength of plastic materials to assessing the strength of metals, this lab testing equipment will be used in different industries. You can also read about the significance of tensile strength testers in different industries.

Features of Tensile strength tester (digital cum computerized model)

This amazing tensile strength testing machine has been equipped with several advanced set of features that makes it easy for you to get the value of tensile strength. You can read about its features below.

  • You can easily view graph test reports in force vs. time.
  • The reports can be saved on the desktop as well.
  • You can easily view 10 sample reports in one report.
  • Data can be viewed in excel format.
  • The pass/fail criteria can also be programmed with the help of this lab testing instrument.
  • Bright LED display and feather touch controls to make it easy for you to operate this testing machine.

These are the features you will get with the use of a tensile strength tester (digital cum computerized model). Now, let us focus on its technical specifications.

These are the features and technical specifications you will get with the use of this lab testing equipment. You can easily perform the test with some tensile test precautions so that you will not face any errors.

Possible problems caused by tensile strength tester

There are different problems that will be faced by manufacturers while conducting the tensile test. You can easily read about the list of common problems you get with tensile strength tester and how you can easily troubleshoot them.

  • Most people face the problem of no supply in this testing instrument. The main cause behind this problem is no supply to the switch or maybe the socket is not working. Thus, you can check the main switch and fit in the plug to overcome this problem.
  • Most of you get an unexpected reading on the load indicator. This happens due to the wrong placement of the specimen. Thus, you should do the proper placement of testing specimens so as to get highly accurate testing results.
  • Too much fluctuation will also be viewed in the load indicator of this lab testing machine. This happens due to electrical noise. Thus, to overcome this issue, you need to provide proper Earthing to this lab testing instrument.

These are three common problems most of us get while using the tensile testing machine. We have also listed the solutions to these problems.
