Introduction to TMI Tensile Tester Model 84-76
TMI Tensile Tester model 84-76 Tensile Tester has a small footprint just over 0.20 square meters (2.3 square feet). Our model 84-76 provides a large 5.7 inch color display, intuitive operator interface, software control, integrated printer & serial port for data collection.
The new unit is designed to test strength of sheet materials including Paper, Board, Tissue Paper, Film Packaging Seals, Adhesives, Pressure Sensitive Tapes and a variety of low force tensile applications up to 1330 N (136 Kg, 300 lbs).
The TMI Tensile Tester Model 84-76 is a robust, precision, tensile strength instrument suitable for rugged production environments yet designed to provide highly accurate measurements for research applications.
Simple Automated Testing
When used in production, the TMI Tensile Tester Model 84-76 automatically displays Peak Force and Peak % Elongation after each measurement. Additional results displayed are Tensile Strength, TEA, Tensile Index and Breaking Length.

GraphMaster software for TMI Tensile Tester Model 84-76
TMI Tensile Tester Model 84-76 incorporates a new microcontroller design with a stepper motor which provides precision position control for repeatable instrument performance. An intuitive control panel and large 5.7 inch color display provides easy operation of the testing.
Intuitive Software design of TMI Tensile Tester makes test screen set-up and navigation quick and accurate. Software allows the operator to develop, store and recall commonly used test methods for easy access thus reducing operator error. Test method storage also insures correct settings of critical parameters resulting in repeatable result data. Permanent storage of test results and test curves can be accomplished with optional PC based GraphMaster software.
A common electronic platform incorporates reusable software components which are shared with a family of instruments offered by the TMI Group. Competitively priced instruments are the result as software development costs are reduced and long-term component supply is ensured.
Intuitive Software design and touch panel allows simple test operation.
Settings screen allows quick entry of critical test parameters and ability to save 10 Test Methods.
Test screen automatically provides result data and statistics after each test.
GraphMaster data collection and curve analysis software.
