Universal Testing Machine (UTM)

A Universal Testing Machine (UTM) is used to test the mechanical properties such as tension, compression of a given test specimen by exerting tensile, compressive or transverse stresses.

Functions of Universal Testing Machine

The main functions of UTM are to test the mechanical properties of materials. The standard tests performed by UTM are:

  • Tensile Test
  • Compression Test
  • Adhesion Tests
  • Pull-Out Tests
  • Bending Test
  • Hysteresis Test
