Why Presto tensile tester is a must-have testing machine for plastic manufacturers?
  • Gaurav Malhotra

The tensile strength of plastic products plays a pivotal role in the plastic products manufacturing industry. Tensile strength is an essential parameter that determines the material's ability to withstand stretching or pulling forces without breaking or deforming. By subjecting plastic products to these quality tests, manufacturers can ensure that the products meet the required quality standards and possess the necessary durability for their intended applications. Thus, to make it easy for plastic manufacturers to conduct quality tests on the materials, we at Presto have designed a high-quality lab testing instrument known as Zeus Ultimo 3.0 tensile testing machine.

This is one of the high-quality lab testing equipment that is used to measure the mechanical properties of plastics and ensure that quality materials will be delivered to the customers. This testing equipment has been designed as per quality standards including ASTM D412, ASTM D429-73, ASTM D624, ATM D638-01, ASTM D76, IS 13360-5-7, IS 3400(Part1-1987). This will ensure accuracy in test results.
In this blog, we are going to provide you with essential information about Presto tensile strength tester and why it is an important lab testing instrument for plastic product manufacturers. So, let us get started!

Importance of testing the tensile strength of plastics

The assessment of tensile strength in plastic products is a crucial step for manufacturers aiming to ensure the reliability and durability of their products. Thus, by conducting comprehensive tests on tensile strength, manufacturers can guarantee that their plastic products possess the necessary structural integrity to endure various real-world applications and usage scenarios reliably.
Thus, it is important for Plastic product manufacturers to conduct this quality test on the materials. Presto tensile testing machine is widely used in different plastic products manufacturing industries to test the tensile strength of different materials. This testing equipment is perfect for tensile force measurement.
Thus, you can easily conduct tensile strength tests on plastics with the help of this quality testing machine. Now, let us discuss a brief about Presto tensile strength tester.

All about Presto Tensile Strength Tester- Zeus Ultimo 3.0

The Presto Tensile Strength Tester Zesus Ultimo 3.0 is a cutting-edge testing instrument equipped with several advanced features. It utilizes an advanced load sensor that incorporates sophisticated electronics for precise and accurate sensing of loads. The speed control of the machine is achieved through a Variable Frequency Drive automation, which can be conveniently operated using a Graphic User Interface on a PC. 
The highly sensitive load sensor ensures excellent linearity and repeatability of test results. With a cross-head travel length of 800 mm, the tester allows for testing various specimens without the need for additional grips. 
This testing machine is built with a rugged twin-column structure, providing stability and durability during testing operations. Safety limit switches are installed to ensure over-travel safety. The use of hardened lead screws or ball screws enables smooth and frictionless movement of the cross-head. The load cell is calibrated by NABL-approved proving rings or dynamometers, ensuring accurate and reliable measurements. 
You can easily understand the tensile strength of the materials with a universal testing machine. Presto is a leading universal testing machine manufacturer of Delhi NCR. Now, let us discuss the features and technical specifications of this quality testing equipment.
