Titan with new Testwise 2017 Software

Increased Strength Capabilities

We have substantially increased the tension and compression capacities of the latest model of our Universal Strength Tester. The Titan now provides the capacity to accommodate tests
up to 5000 Newtons (5kN).

This increase in capacity, in conjunction with the existing and new enhanced range of tooling, intuitive TestWise™ 2017 software and automated processes, gives laboratories the potential to significantly increase the number and scope of tests offered.

With this instrument laboratories will be able to comply with more Standards and perform a wider array of tests on a wider range of product types.

Titan jaw separation distance - no ruler needed

Jaw separation distance is determined by the TestWise software. No steel ruler is needed. As any human error is removed at set-up the test has total conformance with the selected Standard.

Titan - Smart Button

An ergonomically located multi-functional ‘SMART’ button, aids the loading of the sample and is used to start the test. Allowing you to focus completely on testing your specimen.

Titan - Soft Close

Our ‘Soft Close’ jaws close in a two-stage process: the soft close is sufficient to grip the sample. Once the user’s hands are moved away, full pressure is applied ready for testing.

Quick Change Load Cells


Quick Change Load Cells

A further innovation on the Titan are the quick change Load Cells, which are available up to 5000N capacity, and also have an auto-recognition facility.  This design innovation make the process easy, quick & efficient - as can be seen on the left, offering the potential to increase efficiencies and laboratory through put.

Quick Change Jaw Face

Different tests require different jaw faces, as specified within the relevant Standard, so the ability to change the jaw faces quickly, and without the need for tooling, is a very useful time saving benefit of our instrument.

Titan Tooling

Our extensive range of tool-free specimen jaws and grips available for the Titan has been further augmented by the introduction of five new tools.

These include tools and grips to test Elastane, Rivets, Studs, Press studs (also known as snap fastener and poppers), Velcro and leather products.

One of the new grips is our OctoGrip - an 8 claw grip designed to hold very small attachments, which is a complementary tool to the T12 grip.

TestWise Analysis Software

TestWise 2017 now offers the option of saving all reports directly to PDF to further speed up the process as does the new Auto-accept function which users will undoubtedly find extremely beneficial to action a quick test.

The already extensive library of pre-loaded standards has been further enhanced by just over 100 additional standards and retailer test methods.

This library now has over 500 pre-loaded standards and test methods easily located through the ‘Filter’ option.
