The high capacity, twin-column Wire Terminal Strength Testers from Mecmesin are available in 3 capacities from 10 kN to 50 kN for testing a wide range of crimped, soldered and welded terminals. Ideally suited for large terminals and wires as used in applications such as automotive (battery terminals), rail, marine and construction equipment. These twin-column pull testers accept standard and customised fixtures and are fully programmable for both destructive and non-destructive testing.
One press of the rugged touch-screen selects the appropriate test program, and one more launches the test. The WTST 10, 25 and 50 kN systems automatically detect a terminal or cable break, or hold to a load limit. Live graphing shows exactly how forces are changing, for examination and analysis.
