The Chatillon MT500 manual test stand with a 500 lbf (2.5 kN) capacity, is a flexible, easy-to-use solution for force measurement.
The 150 mm (6 inch) throat makes the MT Series excellent for testing large specimens, and the removable plate is designed to accommodate metric as well as imperial threaded fixtures.
This manual test stand is ideal for tensile testing, compression testing, peel, and flexural testing.
It may be equipped with a quick-action lever or precision hand wheel for controlling crosshead speed and travel.
The MT Series manual test stands are often used with the DF2 Series force gauge to check the force necessary to depress a button, or with the LG mechanical gauge to perform low range pull tests at the end of a production line where caps are placed on spray bottles. They are also used to test the force necessary to fold a cardboard container into proper shape.
