Universal Testing Machine is a type of equipment used to evaluate the mechanical properties of materials. It is commonly used in quality control, research and development, and academic settings. The machine works by applying controlled tension or compression to a specimen until it reaches failure or a predetermined endpoint. The amount of force and the deformation that occurs during the testing process are measured and recorded. This data can be used to calculate the material's properties such as strength, stiffness, and ductility. The Universal Testing Machine is versatile and can test a wide range of materials including metals, plastics, composites, and more.
