Low-Cost Automation System for Tensile and Flex Testing
TestMaster AT3 (tensile) and AT3+ (tensile and/or flex) Automated Testing Systems
The Instron® TestMaster AT3 (tensile) and AT3+ (flex) Automated Testing Systems utilize an innovative design for the automatic tensile and/or flexural testing of plastic specimens. Meeting the testing requirements of ASTM D638 and D790, ISO 527 and 178, as well as other testing standards, this system offers many of the benefits of our robotic AT6 systems, but in a smaller footprint.
More Consistent Testing
The automated specimen loading feature improves repeatability and reproducibility of testing and results, minimizing human influence, and thus, human error.
Safety & Ergonomics
The AT3 and the AT3+ Automated Testing Systems increase safety by keeping the operator away from the testing area, and improves ergonomics by virtually eliminating repetitive motions associated with high volume manual testing.
30 - 75% of Valuable Operator Time Saved
Free up valuable operator time by automating the specimen measurement and handling portions of the mechanical test. The operator simply loads the tray and lets the system run, uninterrupted. Depending on the materials and the exact tests performed, operators can expect to save up to 75% of their time.
