• Model F81838 available in 3 different heights for materials with low or high elogation values
• Manual screw type clamps are included as standard.
• Optionally available: pneumatic clamps with foot switch, various sample supports
• Touchscreen for operation and display (F81838)
• Separate start and stop buttons
• Safety switch
• Sturdy construction with frictionless spindles




The sturdy device is available in three different heights. The large touchscreen controls the device and displays graphs and values. Unintentional starting of the instrument is avoided by having separate start and stop buttons. A standard printer may be connected to the interface.

Optional accessory: manual screw type clamps, pneumatic clamps, sample supports for friction tests, wet tensile device (Finch clamp) and more.

Test description

The sample is clamped. The testing process begins by pushing the start button. The upper clamp goes up until the test is finished. (Depending on the testing criteria, this can be the sample break or a preset distance.) After finishing the test, the clamp returns to its initial position and the sample can be
removed. The individual values are displayed. Model F81838 also shows graphs. Statistic values (min, max, mean value and standard deviation) are displayed. If desired, the display of ratio values can be set.

• Maximum testing force: 2 kN
• Testing speed: 0.1-600 mm/min
• Quick return of clamps after sample break
