Comprehensive winTest Analysis universal windows software covering, tensile, compression, peel, shear, tear, cyclic,
creep and multi stage testing. It includes a wide range of industry standard test methods and facility to create and store an
unlimited number of further test methods. There is automated storage of all test data and ease of export to other software
packages such as word, excel, access and SPC systems for enhanced report generation. winTest Reports is
enhancement of winTest Analysis to add flexibility to data analysis and statistical reporting. The package provides a report
generation capabilty that can include long-term statistics and control charts for all specified calculations. winTest
Reports can also be configured to display headings, titles, company logos, graphs, charts, pop-up menus and specific
technical information.
In addition to standard fixtures we can test your specimens in our applications laboratory and design special grips and
fixtures for custom applications. Models are available with extended frames and wider throat.
CE Marking
Conforms to all relevant European standards with UKAS certification.
Energy efficient, lead-free and fully RoHS compliant.
