PullTester 326

Pull Testing Machine

Schleuniger’s PullTester 326 is a triple-range, motorized, benchtop unit designed to measure pull test forces of crimp and ultrasonic weld connections on a wider range of wires than single-range pull test devices. Pull test values are critical parameters for quality control and assurance. The PullTester 326 can also perform non-destructive tests (hold to a specified force). This versatile machine has three measuring ranges, which are individually calibrated. The standard measuring ranges are 200 N, 1,000 N, and 2,000 N (45 lbf., 225 lbf., 450 lbf.), however, other variations are available by special order. This triple-range capability ensures the highest accuracy for the widest range of applications.

Hand actuated or pneumatic pull test devices can give inconsistent data depending on the operator or pull rate. Some standards specify that a test device must pull with a consistent rate. The Schleuniger PullTester 326 is equipped with a speed-controlled motor, ensuring consistent pull rates throughout the measuring range, resulting in repeatable and accurate data. Pull forces can be measured in poundforce, Newtons or kiloponds. The standard 14-position terminal holder accommodates a wide variety of terminals to suit most applications. A variety of terminal holders, however, are available upon request.

The triple-range capability gives the PullTester 326 incredible application flexibility to handle a wide variety of testing applications.
