Titan

We are delighted to announce the launch of Titan5, the latest model of our popular Universal Strength Tester. We have substantially increased the tension and compression capacities of the Titan5, which now provides the capacity to accommodate tests up to 5000 Newtons (5kN).

The extensive range of tool-free specimen grips available for the Titan, for many different standards, test methods and materials types, has been further augmented by the introduction of five new tools, including tools and grips to test Elastane, Rivets, Studs, Press studs (also known as snap fastener and poppers), Velcro and leather products.

This increase in capacity, in conjunction with the existing and new enhanced range of tooling, offers laboratories the potential to significantly increase the number and scope of tests they can offer. With the new Titan5 Labs will be able to comply with more Standards, perform a wider array of tests on a wider range of product types, which could give them the opportunity to open up new markets, create increased business and to also improve efficiencies of their operators and instrument.

We have substantially increased the tension and compression capacities of the latest model of our Universal Strength Tester. The Titan5 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 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.

Designed for accuracy, ease of use and safety

 

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 Titan5 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 Titan5 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

Numerous features of the software make the testing process easier, increase laboratory efficiencies and result accuracy. A library of pre-loaded standards and test methods are easily located through the ‘Filter’ option. Standards used regularly can be saved in ‘Favourites’ for instant access and the Standards Editor enables user-defined Standards to be created.

The software also transfers the parameters of the selected Standard to the Titan for automatic set-up, ready for samples to be loaded, eliminating the risk of human error to give the test total conformance.
