The X250 Universal Testing Machine is the smallest of the models offered by Ray-Ran within the product range. The small footprint single column machine has a range of 5N to 3KN and is used in all industries worldwide for materials testing, product testing, research and development, and quality control applications. Fully automated by advanced computer technology the testing system with high precision control ensures simplicity in operation and highly accurate test results.

The Universal Testing Machine uses feature-rich WinTest™ Analysis software for control and testing, with comprehensive onboard test methods that are compliant with all relevant industry standards including advanced, standard and complex multi-stage test procedures which are fully configurable and controlled using a standard PC interface. An optional IPC 3 industrial-grade Panel PC with touchscreen control can be supplied making the machine a robust standalone system without the need for an external PC or laptop, or customers can utilize their own desktop computer or laptop to operate the machine.

The standard features of the machine include:
A fully digital testing system with high precision control and accuracy includes automated computer control of test methods giving simplicity of operation.
High-resolution auto ranging load cells with accuracies better than +/-0.5% down to 1/1000th of the load cell capacity.
Automatic recognition and calibration of load cells and extensometers, with instant calibration check facility.
800% overload capability of load cells without damage.
Small footprint design, giving the economy of a bench and floor space.
High efficiency pre-loaded self-cleaning ball screws for fast, quiet testing. Fitted with sealed for life lubricated end bearings.
Crosshead guidance system providing precise alignment and smooth running.
