Tensile Testing is a fundamental materials science test in which a sample is subjected to a controlled tension until failure. The results from the test are commonly used to select a material for an application, for quality control and to predict how a material will react under other types of forces.
The MARK-10 ESM750S Tensile Tester is a single-column force tester configurable for tension and compression measurement. For 3D printed products, the tests performed using the MARK-10 are essential for product design and improvement. Physical characteristics must be determined for each material used by a 3D printer for a project, each 3D printer that uses that material, and for each orientation of the print. Designs based off of erroneous material characteristics have a high probability of failure. With the knowledge of how the material works, designs can be improved leading to safer and more reliable products.
