Established in 1977, Mecmesin is a British company specializing in the design and manufacture of force, materials testing, and torque measurement equipment for quality control. Mecmesin is part of the Physical Properties Testers Group (PPT Group), a multi-national holding company, a family of brands expert in the design and production of solutions for testing a range of physical properties including compression, light fastness, moisture, dry rate, water repellency, abrasion, flammability, texture, tensile and torque properties.
Based near Horsham, West Sussex, the company has expanded globally with subsidiary companies in France, Germany, Thailand, China, and the USA.
In addition, Mecmesin has a global network of distributors in more than 50 countries able to provide technical expertise and after-sales support to customers locally.
The focus of the company has always been to provide high-quality test solutions, which are an affordable alternative to the many higher-priced systems available, enabling small and large businesses alike to undertake quality control checks on their products without compromising on precision and accuracy. The rugged design of these systems means they can withstand tough factory conditions and perform tests at the point of production rather than having to use expensive laboratories to ensure consistent manufacture.
From simple hand-held instruments to fully-comprehensive computer-controlled universal test machines, we design products to suit many different applications, budgets, and changing needs.
These include universal test machines for raw material specimen analysis; tensile and compression testing systems for testing product/component samples; torque testing systems; software; digital torque testers and force gauges. We offer 4 distinct levels of test system, which includes our premium range OmniTest UTMs, simple-to-use motorized systems, semi-automated console-controlled systems, and fully-featured computer-controlled systems.....
Our test solutions enable you to measure according to BS, DIN, ASTM, and ISO standards from 2.5N for our gauges, to our twin-column systems range testing up to 50kN!
