The MTH Manual Tester is a single column, manually-operated force tester. The MTH has a load measurement capacity of 550lbf (2500N, 250kgf) and can be used for compression or tensile testing. The mechanical advantage afforded by the MTH-550’s precision, high-resolution worm gear design lets you test effortlessly. One rotation of the hand wheel positions the crosshead 0.03″ (0.75mm). Total stroke for the MTH-550 is 4″ (102mm).
The MTH-550 is an ideal, affordable solution for spring testing. Fit the MTH-550 with a digital force gage and optional digital scale to determine spring rates, initial tension and more.
The hand wheel may be positioned anywhere along the 30″ (762mm) column, and with a 4″ (102mm) throat, large samples can be accurately tested. The base may be permanently affixed to your workbench. Optional gage adapter kits are available for use with non-Starrett force gages. Quick-change clevis adapters let you mount a large selection of Starrett testing fixtures.
Force measurement is performed using a Starrett digital force gage found in the software menu.
