The Shimadzu micro compression testers MCT Series evaluate the strength of micro components, micro particles generated in powder processing and fine fibers used in new materials. Types of Testable Materials Ceramic particle Fine metallic powder Resin particles Pigments Food source powders Pharmaceuticals (micro-capsules) Fine fibers Features Available Test Modes Compression Testing: Force increases until either the sample ruptures or a preset load is achieved. Load-Unload Testing: Force is increased to a preset max load point and then reduced to a preset minimum load point. By measuring the difference in displacement between the maximum and minimum point, the recovery rate percentage of the sample is calculable. Cyclic Testing: Test force is repeatedly increased and decreased up to 250 times to evaluate specimen fatigue properties. A Design with Simplicity in Mind Micrometer (Optical Head) The micrometer optical viewing head measures the size of the specimen, which is sandwiched by two indicators to enable measurement up to 200µm at an increment of 0.1µm (with a x5O objective lens). Objective Lenses The standard x50 and optional x100 lenses are used in conjunction with the micrometer optical head to provide length measurements. Sliding Stage A test point is selected with the micrometer optical head and that point is then shifted to just below the indenter. The click-stop mechanism ensures accurate positioning of the specimen. The positioning accuracy of the unit is within ±5µm (±0.2µm can be achieved with careful handling). Vertical Stage Shift Handle The stage shifts smoothly using a single handle.
