Test Solution

Wide range of test application

Force Test Systems

Mecmesin’s force testing products deliver solutions for a wide range of applications. Versatile universal testers, with a comprehensive choice of interchangeable grips and fixtures, perform tension and compression testing to numerous test standards across all industry sectors. Our dedicated systems meet the needs of specific test types with complete solutions optimised for focussed and efficient force testing. Data acquisition and analysis capability is provided by powerful software in our flexible PC-controlled models and easy to use touch-screen systems.

Whatever your requirement, there is a tester for you, bringing consistency and repeatability to your force testing.
