The MTL Manual Testers are single column, manually-operated force testers. These testers operate with a quick-action lever in either tension or compression directions. Two models are available- the MTL-110 – which measures up to 110lbf of force, and the MTL-330 – which measures up to 330lbf of force. The MTL may be equipped with optional legs so that you can test in a horizontal position. Force measurement is performed using a Starrett DFC or DFG digital force gage found in the Software menu.
This tester is ideal for component testing and its compact design fits small work spaces. The MTL- 110 has a 6″ (152mm) stroke. The tester’s quick-action lever moves the rack and pinion crosshead 3″ (76mm) per revolution. The lever may be positioned anywhere along the 20″ (508mm) column, and with a 6″ (152mm) throat, large samples can be accurately tested.
Options include a digital scale for measuring deflection distance. The base adapter adjusts to accommodate different gage models.
This tester can be used for tensile and compression testing applications, and is ideal for spring testing. Fit the MTL-330 with a Starrett digital force gage and optional digital scale to determine spring rates, initial tension and more. The MTL-330 can be easily mounted to your workbench for secure testing.
Like the MTL-110, the quick-action lever moves the rack and pinion crosshead 3″ (76mm) per revolution. The lever may be positioned anywhere on the 30″ (762mm) column, and with a 4″ (102mm) throat, large samples can be accurately tested. Optional gage adapter kits are available for use with non-Starrett force gages.
