Mecmesin has launched the CrimpTest-1 kN, a rugged and rapid-throughput tester for quality testing wire terminal strength. It features simple controls combined with accuracy and ease of use to give a reliable everyday tester, requiring minimal training and maintenance.
Motorised pull testers improve accuracy and reduce operator strain and injury. For added safety, this ergonomically-designed horizontal tester pulls samples away from the user. A single button press runs a test, and just 4 multi-function buttons provide for all settings, operation and output to an RS232 statistical printer.
Peak force at break is displayed along with clear pass and fail indication. Four speed settings are available: 25, 50, 100 and 200 mm/min. to comply with all regular test standards. Units of force can be displayed in N, kgf or lbf. This bench tester is competitively-priced and designed for continuous use within the production environment. It is IP52 rated against ingress from dust, wire fragments and water.
