motorised test standThe TCM series is well adapted for production environments. This low cost, motorized, ergonomic tester attached with our Chatillon DF Series digital force gauges makes tensile, compression, peel, and flexural testing of your samples an easy task.

The motorized TCM Series force testers are available in two versions:

  • the TCM100 with a force capacity of up to 100 lbf (500 N)
  • the TCM350 with capacity up to 350 lbf (1500 N).

Both force testers feature a standard crosshead travel of 406 mm (16 in) and are available in extended editions with a crosshead travel of 812 mm (32 in).
A throat depth at a full 100 mm (3.9 in) enables the operator to perform force tests including tension, compression, bending, peeling, adhesion, insertion and extraction on samples up to 200 mm (7.8 in).

Travel speed is adjustable from 0.2 to 40 in/min or to 5 to 1016 mm/min.

The universal adapter plate with International threads sizes to ASM and Metric threads sizes provide flexibility for installing custom and standard fixtures.

The haptic feedback offers a vibration to alert the user that the command has been received. The TCM Series force testers may also be operated with an optional footswitch controller.

A bright LED digital display indicates the travel speed and other text messages for the user to continuously monitor the status of the TCM tester. A high rate return speed is built into the TCM force testers to maximize production throughput. Adjustable Upper and Lower mechanical limit switches are integrated for safety and are used for different modes of operation as Cycling and Return To Zero.

TCM Series Key Features:

  • Simple to use
  • Compact, lightweight bench top design
  • Set Force Limits to End the Test (with a Chatillon DF force gauge)

  • Haptic button feedback – RS232 and Data output when used with a Chatillon DF force gauge

DFE3 Series Digital Force GaugesA Modular System

By adding a digital force gauge from the Chatillon DFX II, DFE3, or DFS3 Series to your TCM Series test stand, additional features will become available enabling you to perform a more advanced, fast and easy force testing on your specimens. By adding a digital force gauge from Chatillon, you also gain access to the ForceTest PC Measuring Software.

ForceTest Force Measuring SoftwareForceTest Force Measuring Software

The ForceTest software is an easy-to-use Windows based force measurement data analysis software for use with the DFE and DFS Series digital force gauges and torque gauges. Your test results are presented in a spreadsheet format, so you can analyze data and perform common mathematical and statistical calculations.
