Tensile Testing

Tensile testing is conducted on a wide variety of materials to determine properties such as ultimate tensile strength, yield strength and elongation at fracture. Various classes of materials have unique requirements with respect to specimen geometry, specimen gripping, test procedures and results that are determined. In general, however, tensile tests involve the application of a monotonic load or displacement to the specimen to the point of fracture.

MTS has more than 40 years of experience across the full spectrum of material testing. We combine this unmatched expertise with the reliable technology test professionals need to perform highly accurate and repeatable tensile tests for an exceptionally wide range of specimen types. Complete solutions for tensile testing include load frames, software, controllers and fixturing. Specific offerings include:

Highly stiff, floor-standing servohydraulic load frames for a range of force 
   requirements
Intuitive, versatile and user-friendly software with powerful test design capabilities
Digital controllers with high channel density, high capacity and superior configurability
Rugged, high-performance grips and fixuring
