The MTH Manual Tester is a single column, manually-operated force tester.  The MTH has a load measurement capacity of 2500N and can be used for compression or tensile testing.  The mechanical advantage afforded by the MTH-550's precision, high-resolution worm gear design lets you test effortlessly.  One rotation of the hand wheel positions the crosshead 0.75mm. Total stroke for the MTH-550 is 102mm.  Force measurement is performed using a Starrett digital force gauge (supplied separately). 

The MTH-550 is an ideal, affordable solution for spring testing.  Fit the MTH-550 with a digital force gauge and optional digital scale to determine spring rates, initial tension and more. 

The hand wheel may be positioned anywhere along the 762mm column, and with a 102mm throat, large samples can be accurately tested.  The base may be permanently affixed to your workbench.  Optional gauge adapter kits are available for use with non- Starrett force gauges.  Quick-change clevis adapters let you mount a large selection of Starrett testing fixtures.
