New modular, tabletop universal testing machines are said to be smaller and less expensive than competitive units, making it practical for more labs to perform low-force tension, compression, and flexure tests on plastics, films, packaging, and other products. The eXpert 760X line from Admet Inc., Norwood, Mass., is said to be easy to use and compact, with footprints ranging from 12 x16 to 17 x 20 in. These single-column units have crosshead travel up to 34 in. and apply 225 to 2250 lb of force. Pricing starts at $5900 for the eXpert 7601 1kN machine. Three levels of controls are available with varying degrees of programming and display sophistication.
