Alpha Technologies Inc. has launched a universal, table-top tensile tester for rubber, plastics and other materials.
Alpha said the device, called the AT10, has a maximum load capacity of 10kN and performs multiple tests for quality control and research and development applications. Alpha claims that the AT10 is fully CE compliant, meeting the stringent health, safety and environmental requirements of its global market.
According to the company, the AT10 tensile tester's key features include a computer controlled testing with a full range of user features; basic license for tension, tear, compression, peel, adhesion and O-ring; data point selector and custom data point calculator; reanalysis and recalculation of results; and the ability to export to Excel, Word or SQL database.
Alpha said the product is backed by its field service engineers and customer-focused aftermarket support team, servicing the instrument wherever it is.
This instrument has a selection of load cells available, along with options such as an automatic thickness gauge, Alpha said, and the data collected can be stored on the instrument's computer and integrated with Alpha Technologies' Enterprise software.
