Material Testing / Universal Testing Machine / UTM - SL Series

Tinius Olsen’s hydraulic testers have long been recognized as the standard for accuracy, dependability, and versatility in universal testing machine (UTMs). The many thousands of testers currently in use throughout the world attest to this fact. Now more than ever, the SL series represents the highest standard in hydraulically powered universal testing machines.


It features a patented dual-pressure hydraulic loading system and a rugged four-column construction for exceptional load frame rigidity. In addition, it has a space-saving console with a smaller footprint and comfortable working height design. A range of user interface options are available, including Bluetooth and/or tethered interfaces, to enable basic tests, comprehensive tests and everything in between, through Tinius Olsen’s Horizon materials testing software named as ‘Horizon Software’. SL series machines also known as tensile strength tester & tensile strength apparatus.


SL systems are guaranteed to meet ASTM, ISO, and other national and international specifications for accuracy. Accuracy is within +/- 0.1% of the indicated load from 0.2% to 100% of frame capacity. All equipment used to calibrate the weighing and indicating systems of the SL testers is traceable to the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST). For consistent accuracy, robustness, and unparalleled reliability, the Tinius Olsen SL series still sets the standard of excellence.
