TMS multiple probe fixture

 TMS multiple probe fixture	The TMS multiple probe fixture consists of matching upper and lower parts to penetration test multiple individual samples of baton-shaped products.

The upper accessory has an array of 20 stainless steel needle tipped rods arranged in rows of pairs. The lower fixture aligns flat raised supporting surfaces to present the product sample(s) to an individual needle probe. By placing a sample across the supports, bridging the gap, the middle of the sample is presented to the probe, with clearance below to allow for complete penetration.

If required, the pitch of the needles and supports may be modified to accommodate other products – contact FTC with your own specification.

Trusted by customers across the world

I have been using the TMS-Pro mechanical tester in our undergraduate biological materials property course for the past 3 years. The simple setup and operation of the TMS-Pro allows my students to focus on learning the theoretical underpinnings of mechanical properties instead of fighting with a finicky test system.

An added bonus is working with Shirl and his amazing team at Food Technology Corporation. They respond almost immediately to questions and inquiries and are always friendly and helpful.
