Ideal for performing tension, compression, or advanced materials testing applications, Table Model frames are the ideal choice when testing materials such as plastic, rubber, textiles, metals, composites, adhesives, bolts, screws, fasteners, wood products, and related material.

Table model frames come in standard sizes, however taller or wider frames can be manufactured if the need arises. Simple and easy to use, United Table Model frames are known for the durability, dependability, and overall lower cost of ownership compared to many other brands on the market today.

If you do not have a table or lab bench to sit the test frame on United offers a versatile Floor Stand. The Floor Stand is capable of supporting the weight of the frame, while at the same time ensuring the grips, fixtures and test area are at an optimal height for the operator.

DragonFly UTS Software & Hardware Controller

All new United UTM’s are operated using our new, proprietary DragonFly UTS software and control electronics package. DragonFly UTS is our next generation platform designed to provide customers all of the latest features that a modern UTM requires in a powerful but easy-to-use package. Using an intuitive workflow-based user interface, DragonFly UTS is designed to support all types of UTM users from R&D labs to Quality Control personnel in production environments.

DragonFly UTS User Experience

Setting up and running a test, saving test data, and producing reports is best accomplished through a workflow that aligns with the natural progression that an operator understands, which is precisely what DragonFly UTS provides. From the first screen the operator sees to the final data analysis and reporting screen, DragonFly UTS is designed to provide a smooth, intuitive, and easily repeated workflow-based environment unique to UTM users and applications.

DragonFly UTS Hardware Controller and Data Acquisition

DragonFly UTS is more than just new software. Along with our innovative software and user interface, United has also developed our next generation DragonFly UTS Hardware Controller (DHC Controller) to provide the most reliable and highest quality data possible from our UTM’s. The standard DHC controller incorporates some of the most advanced embedded hardware components available on the market. With standard data acquisition rates of 1,000 Hz, DragonFly UTS’s performance is among the best in the industry and is more than adequate to meet even the most advanced testing demands.   In addition, DragonFly UTS is designed to protect the value of your investment.  Forward-thinking controller design makes the DHC practically future-proof against electronics obsolescence issues that plague so many UTM systems with older embedded controller technologies.  Growing your UTM system capabilities is easy as the DHC can be configured to accommodate up to 12 additional external channels via plug-and-play expansion modules, which can be added as needed to support your future testing needs.   So, invest in what you need for your lab now, and rest easy regarding your investment – DragonFly UTS will ensure that your UTM is able to meet your testing needs for many, many years to come.
