Universal testing machine – UTM

The SCITEQ SCT Universal Testing Machines offers a wide range of test used in the plastics industry. The UTMs perform tensile, compression, and bending tests according to a large variety of international standards i.e. ISO 527, ISO 6259, ISO 9967, ISO 9969, ASTM D 638.

Product highlights

  • high accuracy equipment
  • user friendly
  • solid construction
  • customizable test rooms
  • 1, 2, 4 columns
  • speed range 0.01–500 mm/min
  • multiple programmable test set-ups
  • accessories such as extensometers, grips and compression plates
  • high accuracy interchangeable load cells from 10kN up to 300kN


The high-end machines combines high performance, unique design and ease of use, making it ideal for testing applications up to 300kN. The UTM design is equally suitable for routine quality control testing as for performing complex multi-stage tests. The solution is highly customizable, thus offering you maximum flexibility for both tensile ’dog-bone test’ as well as compression ‘ring-stiffness test’

The machines use high accuracy interchangeable load cells for tension, compression and bending through zero force measurements. To ensure optimal performance, the UTMs are equipped with components of the highest quality, such as Mitsubishi servo motors, Motovario gears from Italy, and German ball screws.

Intuitive software

The UTMs have high resolution controllers incorporating latest technology for highly accurate load measurement and rapid data acquisition. The software enables users to know intrinsic characteristics of various materials, such as stress, strain, E-modulus, yield point etc. for material property test such as tensile, compression, bend, flaking tests. The software is easy to use and designed to enable a large range of different test procedures according to various international standards among others the following: ISO 527, ISO 6259, ISO 9967, ISO 9969, ASTM D 638..
