The mid-range Wire Terminal Strength Tester (WTST 5 kN) provides high accuracy and repeatability when performing pull out tests on crimped, soldered and welded joints up to 5 kN. The motorised drive system of this pull tester ensures that there is no sudden application of force or jerking during the test and an easily-operated touch screen display allows fast, efficient testing by operators in a production environment.

International test standards generally stipulate that terminals must be pulled to destruction at a uniform pull speed (typically 25 to 50 mm/min), or alternatively be held at a sustained load for a defined period. This requires the use of a programmable motorised test system, for which the Mecmesin WTST series is ideal.
