How Does Tensile Strength Tester Work

The tensile testing machine is considered to be the best investment for those working in a material testing business. With the use of a tensile strength tester, you will be able to test the tensile strength of different materials. This will help you determine the quality of your materials. Thus, you do not need to search here and there, when you have Presto tensile tester. We are considered to be Asia’s top-quality testing machines manufacturers that will help to improve the quality of your product. We offer different models of tensile strength testers that will give you prominent and accurate testing results.
Here, we are going to discuss the working of digital cum computerized model. But, before that, let us discuss a brief about this lab testing equipment.

What is a tensile strength tester and how you can use it efficiently?

The tensile testing machine from Presto Testing Instruments will help to evaluate the load-bearing strength of the testing specimen when undergone through the tensile load. This testing instrument will surely help you to analyze the mechanical properties of materials. You can easily determine how much weight an object can handle before breaking. This advanced testing instrument comes with no slippage grips so that you can accurately perform the test.

This testing instrument can be used in laboratories for the purpose of testing the tensile properties of materials. You can accurately place the sample between upper and lower jaws.

Whenever you conduct the test, then you need to make sure that your specimen should be placed accurately. The wrong placement will lead to accurate testing results. To successfully conduct the test, follow the below-mentioned tips:

  1. Place specimen for testing accurately.
  2. Provide proper earthing and power supply to the machine.
  3. Tighten the grips of the machine, so as to keep the specimen at its place.
  4. If the grips may get blunt, then you should replace them with a new set.
  5. Use limit switches to safely conduct the test.

In this way, you can successfully conduct the test. You can also read about the factors that will affect your tensile strength testing results.  Now, let us focus on the features and technical specifications of the tensile strength tester.

How to conduct a tensile test with Presto tensile strength tester?

If you wish to conduct the tensile strength test with the help of the Presto tensile strength tester, then we suggest you follow the steps mentioned below. These easy to follow steps will definitely help you to achieve the best testing results.

  • You can start the test by plugging the machine into a 5 amp switch.
  • Place the specimen accurately and press RESET as well as TARE buttons to set the value at the peak load indicator.
  • Now, you can turn the rotary switch to the down direction. The lower grip will be a move to a lower direction and it will increase the value shown in the load indicator.
  • Turn off the rotary switch when the specimen will get ruptured.
  • Once the machine will stop, the display will show the load and return to zero. The elongation display will get frozen.
  • You can press the memory switch on the load indicator to show the peak value.
  • Note down the peak values to assess your specimen test results.

In this way, you can easily commence the test using this amazing lab testing equipment. If you need any more assistance or a FREE sample testing session for this testing equipment, then give us a call at +91 9210903903 or email us at We will instantly connect with you.
