PullTester 325

Pull Testing Machine

Overview

The PullTester 325 is a triple-range, motorized benchtop device for measuring pull forces of crimp connections, welded connections or many other possibilities. The triple-range capability gives the PullTester 325 incredible application flexibility to handle a wide variety of testing applications. Furthermore, this unique capability provides greater accuracy on a broader range of wires than single-range pull test devices. The PullTester 325 is specially suited for quality assurance in a production environment.

  • 3 selectable force ranges for improved accuracy over a wider range of wires
  • 2 selectable pulling rates
  • Speed-controlled motor for consistent pull rates
  • Simple LCD display for easy programming & reading
  • Repeatable & accurate data
  • Variety of possible terminal (crimp) and wire holders
  • Standard RS 232 interface for curve analysis with optional WinCrimp PC software

Application Range

This versatile machine has two versions depending on required pull rates. Both versions include 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. 

  • PullTester 325-25: 200 / 1,000 / 2,000 N (45 / 225 / 450 lbf.) @ 25 / 50 mm/min (0.98 or 1.97“/min)
  • PullTester 325-50: 200 / 1,000 / 2,000 N (45 / 225 / 450 lbf.)  @ 50 / 100 mm/min (1.97 / 3.94”/min)

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 325 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.
