TESTING TEXTILES – PRODUCT RANGE
Tinius Olsen 5ST
The Tinius Olsen 5ST low capacity tension compression machine incorporates the latest advanced technology and quality engineering to give you the ultimate in durability, convenience, accuracy and ease of use.
Powerful as a stand alone unit, using the Bluetooth enabled HMC interface, these benchtop machines have the ability to perform a five stage test and report key test results. Alternatively, these can be connected directly to Horizon software where a virtual interface is provided for pretest setup and test start.
These capabilities are enhanced by direct USB2 connection to a pc running Tinius Olsen's powerful Horizon control and analysis software, which can produce high resolution graphical results and comprehensive test reports using test data from multiple sources if needed.
With superior controllers and high data transfer rates, combined with a large number of accessory connections, built-in air distribution ports on the frame, 4 T-slots/channels to hold a variety of different accessories, the new range will make short, precision, work of your testing workload.
Tinius Olsen Horizon software is next evolution of testing software. As part of our development process, we have taken the best features of our existing software offerings, including Test Navigator, QMat, and EP600 software, added a host of report writing and data manipulation capabilities and in the process, created a new, unparalleled testing platform that will make easy work of your materials testing programs, whether they’re designed for the demanding rigors of R&D or the charting and analysis functions of QC testing.
One of the first features you see within the Horizon software is its use of the most current Windows environments. These familiar formats make it easy to use and learn, especially since the same familiar functionality is maintained throughout the program.
Key features of Horizon include:
•Test Method Library of international and industrial test standards
•Test Editor allows you to customise your own test methods
•Tabbed Test and Recall Area allows examination of previous tests while performing live tests
•Multiple Machine Control of different test types
•Multilingual capabilities means the software and results are truly portable
MP1200 Melt Indexer
The MP1200 Melt Indexer from Tinius Olsen is a superior, advanced, melt indexing system that is available in either manual or motorized configurations and features a new three zone band heater with three controllers that result in unparalleled temperature control of the furnace. When combined with the simple, menu driven, touch screen control you'll agree that the MP1200 is in a league of its own.
All testing hardware is fully complemented by Tinius Olsen developed Horizon software that turns your hardware into a sophisticated quality analysis system. Key Features include:
• Conforms to ASTM 1238, D3364, ISO 1133, BS 2782, DIN 53735, JIS K7210 and other similar methods
• Three zone band heater and three controllers enable an unprecedented temperature control to within 0.1 deg C
• Touch screen control for simple control and setup
• Simple die release system that allows easy access to the barrel for quicker and more efficient cleaning.
• USB connectivity allows multiple MP1200s to be connected to a pc running Horizon software
The manual MP1200 Extrusion Plastometer includes the operating tools, piston rod and orifices as standard equipment. Add weights as required and you are set for Procedure A type tests. Weights and reference thermometers are available for all standard and custom applications. Corrosion resistant components are available for testing fluoroplastic resins and fluorocarbon plastics.
The MP 1200 microprocessor-based Controller/Timer is fully interactive with the operator. It features the latest digital technology, a high resolution touch screen display, USB serial communications port, non-volatile memory for calibration and test parameter storage (with power-up in last used program), integral audio alarm, and other related features.
For more automated tests add the PPDT-1200 Automatic Timing Switch for Procedure B - Automatically Timed Flow Rate-type tests and/or any of the other efficiency-boosting accessory packages for even greater automation.
In all cases the menu-driven user interface of the MP 1200 Controller/Timer guides the operator through the test and calculates and displays the test results. And, its serial USB communications port, which is provided as standard, allows interfacing to a printer for test report generation or to a computer using our Horizon software.
Regardless of how you configure your system you'll have a state-of-the-art Melt Indexer unsurpassed in performance and reliability.
