Minitech, is a Single Column Universal Tester ideal for tension and compression applications for load capacity up to 250kg (2.5kN). This model is sleek, light weight & noiseless, performing tests with simplicity, accuracy and affordability for quality control and product testing. Minitech is recommended where lab space is limited and free access to test area is desirable, it can be used as a stand alone with 9000 series Console or in conjunction with our PC mode software Test Bench© with which the machine can be programmed with up to almost unlimited different test methods ranging from most basic test to the most sophisticated machine control with analytical output. i.e. full graphics and statistical display.

An ideal solution for testing problems where precision, efficiency and consistency in performance are required.
