Mecmesin MultiTest 50-i

Mecmesin launches its most powerful Packaging Test System - the MultiTest 50-i

The Mecmesin MultiTest 50-i tension and compression tester has a loading capacity of 50kN and this launch marks a significant milestone for Mecmesin's test system capabilities.

Quality assurance managers will now be able to accurately measure the top-load strength of larger, stronger packaging samples using Mecmesin's MultiTest 50-i

The high capacity, computer-controlled, force test system offers an increased clearance between the columns of 420mm and sample height of up to1330mm (measured without load cell or grips).

The Mecmesin MultiTest 50-i joins Mecmesin's family of affordable tension and compression measurement systems, popularly used within QC laboratories and by packaging manufacturers worldwide, with complex applications, requiring sophisticated programming and post-test data interrogation tools. 

Controlled by Mecmesin's windows-based EmperorTM software, users can create multi-stage test routines to meet their exact specifications and changing needs. Tests can be viewed as a ‘live' event, via a graphical display shown on a PC screen, enabling critical observation of sample performance. A suite of calculations provides ample post-test data interrogation tools to pinpoint and evaluate mechanical properties of every sample in intricate detail. 

The Managing Director of Mecmesin, John Page, says:" The Mecmesin MultiTest 50-i is an exciting addition to our premium range of computer-controlled force test systems. It's sophisticated yet easy-to use. You can build your own programme, view test data at the touch of a button, evaluate results in depth and create test reports. Excellent resolution and outstanding accuracy come as standard."

Where personnel safety or risk of contamination is a factor, a special guard can be adjoined to the system, sealing the test zone to prevent any accidental damage or injury.

Mecmesin is a privately owned British company, based in Slinfold, West Sussex. It has offices in China, America, France and Thailand and a world-wide network of distributors.
