TMS extensibility fixture

TMS extensibility fixtureThe TMS extensibility fixture consists of a pair of aluminium plates to clamp the sample across an aperture at the center of each plate. The lower plate has a smoothly radiused edge to the hole to avoid tearing the test sample.

The aperture allows a probe to pass through, placing the sample under tension and deforming it potentially until rupture. Select a probe design to meet the specific requirements of the analysis.

The fixture is ideally suited to testing thin products such as flatbreads and tortillas, to evaluate tear resistance, burst strength and the effects of staling.

Excellent customer service. Consistently followed up and offered help without asking. Relatively low priced - provides good value. 

Easy to switch different load cells. Used it for 5 lab sessions for 68 students this semester and performed well.
