A uniaxial tester, commonly familiar as the universal testing machine, is used to carry out a wide variety of mechanical tests by pulling in tension or pushing in compression. Uniaxial testers are used for peel testing, tensile testing, flexural or bend testing, and compression testing of materials such as plastic, rubber, steel, aluminum, iron, metal alloys, rubber, polymer, and other materials. Uniaxial testers are available in various configuration; actuator based, dual column, and single column, with a maximum force over 1 MN. Uniaxial testers are high-quality, reliable and cost effective testing equipment with repeatable and accurate measurement characteristics. They are employed in various end use industries including construction, mining, metalworking, electrical, electronics, automotive, and aerospace, to check the integrity of a material or the coated surface.
Uniaxial Tester: Market Drivers and Challenges
The high-tech manufacturing industries, such as aerospace, automotive, electronics, are one of the prominent consumers of uniaxial testers as it offers precise measurement which is essential for these industries. The emerging trend of miniaturization aiming towards the development of chip micro computers for consumer electronic devices and automotive segments anticipated to be the major end use markets by application for the global silicon anode battery market MEMS (micro electro mechanical systems) is expected to propel the demand for testing equipment such as uniaxial testing over the forecast period. This trend of MEMS and nanotechnology are being accepted in numerous end use industries including automotive, aerospace and others. Thus, the ongoing pace of miniaturization of components is expected to result in more inflexible testing standards, which in turn, will augment the market growth of uniaxial testers over the forecast period. Furthemore, rising electronics industry and increasing adoption of electronic devices, such as laptops, smartphones, consumer electronics, etc. will lead to an increased volume share of uniaxial testers in the global market. Furthermore, automotive, aerospace and defence sectors are the major contributors in the uniaxial testers market and the regional government investments in production is predicted to contribute to the growth of the uniaxial testers market.
