Material Testing Workstation Offers Higher Capacity.

MTS Systems Corp. has announced a higher-capacity addition to the Synergie 1000 material testing workstation. The new Synergie 1000 provides users who test elastomers, textiles, thermoplastics, and other materials at forces as high as 5 kN (1100 lbf) with a small, low-cost alternative to twin screw technology, MTS says. Earlier Synergie 1000 workstations offer capacities ranging from milliNewtons to 2 kN (450 lbf).

All Synergie models feature a compact, ergonomic design that minimizes the number of components and makes the systems easy to service. Its electronic package integrated into the load frame, the model saves lab space as well. Other benefits are said to include quick setup, small footprint, and extreme flexibility.

Suitable for tensile, compression, flex, peel, shear, and other standard test modes, all Synergie 1000 models are fully computer-automated with the manufacturer's TestWorks 4 materials-testing software, which enables users to streamline their materials testing and data handling. According to MTS, with TestWorks software, users can analyze, review, graph, plot, and achieve materials-testing data quickly and easily. They can also use a wide variety of MTS extensometers, force transducers, grips, and fixtures.
