The TT 2300 offers accurate testing, powerful tensile force and 56" crosshead travel.

The Benz TT 2300, the largest of the standard Benz tensile testers, has a tensile force of 20,000 lbs. and a 56" crosshead. It stands 74" tall, but requires only two by four feet of floorspace.

The Benz TT 2300 displays realtime force and elongation on a computer monitor for study, comparison, printing and record-keeping.

Operation is uninterrupted "load and go," saving enormous amounts of operator time. Results are precise and reproducible. Reports are easily customized.

Benzwin software provides data acquisition and comparison with past results through test curve displays and statistical analysis summaries. The Benzwin 2000 software, native to Windows 2000, is part of the TT 2300 system, which includes software, Windows 2000, and a PC.

Benzwin 2000 software stores test data and holds it for comparison and model building. Stress and strain analysis therefore does not require repeat testing and calculating, saving time for production managers, quality controllers and researchers.

In addition to tensile testing, Benz tensile testers test tear strength, peel strength, adhesion, coefficient of friction, burst, proofload, stress relaxation and custom tests.

TT 2300 hardware includes an emergency stop switch and programmed safety limits to eliminate load cell overload.

A number of grips for different types of material are available. Fixtures, adapters, environmental chambers, sample preparation equipment and extensometers are also available.

All Benz tensile testers, custom or standard, carry a free one-year warranty.
