MT 190 Assembly materials tester



  • Highly practice-oriented assembly project for training in the metalworking trades
  • Assembly kit to build a unit for carrying out materials testing experiments
  • Range of tasks can be expanded to include electronic data acquisition (MT 190.01)
  • Comprehensive, well-structured instructional material


Technical Description

The fully assembled MT 190 system presents an actual fully functional materials tester which can be used for a wide range of materials testing. The test force is generated using a hand-operated hydraulic system. The test force is displayed using a large dial gauge indicator. The elongation of the test specimen is recorded on a dial gauge. 

Using MT 190, students can develop skills in the carrying out of complex project work. In the course of the project they independently develop an appreciation for  the fundamentals and correlations involved, then contribute to the overall outcome using teamworking skills. The skills acquired are the planning, execution and checking of assembly, commissioning, and maintenance operations. 

MT 190 is supplied in kit form. The kit contains all the mechanical components, measuring devices, hydraulic components complete with sealing elements, and piping material complete with all connecting elements.

The assembly process involves basic mechanical construction, hydraulic assembly of the two cylinders, and assembly of the piping. All the necessary tools and aids, as well as comprehensive instructional material, are included. 

Learning Objectives / Experiments
- reading and understanding technical documentation
- planning and execution of assembly operations and sequences
- familiarisation with machine elements and components
- commissioning and checking of a materials tester following assembly
- planning, execution and assessment of maintenance operations
- fault analysis: troubleshooting, fault assessment and repair
After assembly:
- tensile test of metallic specimens
- recording of stress-elongation diagrams
- Brinell hardness test
