The MTL Manual Testers are single column, manually-operated force testers.  These testers operate with a quick-action lever in either tension or compression directions.  Two models are available- the MTL-110 and MTL-330.  Force measurement is performed using a Starrett DFC or DFG digital force gauge (supplied separately).

MTL-110 The MTL-110 can measure force up to 500N.  This tester is ideal for component testing and its compact design fits small work spaces.  The MTL-110 has a 152mm stroke.  The tester's quick-action lever moves the rack and pinion crosshead 76mm per revolution.  The lever may be positioned anywhere along the 508mm column, and with a 152mm throat, large samples can be accurately tested.  Options include a digital scale for measuring deflection distance.  The base adapter adjusts to accommodate different gauge models.

MTL-330 The MTL-330 can measure force up to 1500N.  This tester can be used for tensile and compression testing applications, and is ideal for spring testing.  Fit the MTL- 330 with a Starrett digital force gauge and optional digital scale to determine spring rates, initial tension and more.  The MTL-330 can be easily mounted to your workbench for secure testing.  Like the MTL-110, the quick-action lever moves the rack and pinion crosshead 76mm per revolution.  The lever may be positioned anywhere on the 762mm column, and with a 102mm throat, large samples can be accurately tested.

Optional gauge adapter kits are available for use with non-Starrett force gauges.  The MTL may be equipped with optional legs so that you can test in a horizontal position.
